This Wednesday night two of the Force 410 girls, Mikayla and Kelsey (both in 5th grade) taught our class, which is also Annelise's class. She adores these big girls to pieces, so needless to say she was beside herself with glee.
They did an absolutely fantastic job teaching about Jesus being our foundation. They had visuals, a hands-on application and a even a snack of super cool candy Lego pieces. The boys and girls might not want Scott and I to come back next week since we are not so cool.
3. I have been room mom for Annelise's class this year, except I'm more of a reluctant remedial room mom. I say reluctant because for the first couple weeks of school the sign-up sheet sat pitifully empty, I started to feel guilty, so I decided to give it a whirl. I say remedial because I am a very low key, basic type of room mom. I am a fan of the less is more, not a lot of bells and whistles approach to class parties/activities. This is a room of Pre-K 4-5 year olds, a little bit of excitement goes a long way.
Actually other than organizing the class parties and getting an art project together for an auction it hasn't been that bad of a gig. Since the teacher's birthday falls during Spring Break I tried to organize an early celebration today. I sent a note home asking the kids to make a card for her and maybe bring in flowers or a gift if they could/wanted to, and I think most of them did. Yea!
Last summer I picked up several of these popcorn boxes at the TarJay $ Spot knowing they'd come in handy for something someday. They did. I filled the bottom with Hershey's Nuggets (her teacher's favorite candy), tucked in some popcorn and a Blockbuster gift card. Annelise made a card and we were set. I loved that it was simple and came out pretty cute too.
4. This is a shameless plug for the new mascara I picked up yesterday. Love it. It went on nicely, not clumpy and had good coverage in one swishy-swish across my lashes. I have to admit my gooberness (not that it's ever in question) in not noticing the $1.00 coupon attached to the package until I got home. Bummer. I would probably like it even more.
5. Last week I went to the eye doctor and selected new glasses and sunglasses, in the hopes I will wear my contacts less. I like contacts of course, but my eyes get so dry I end up wanting to claw my contacts off. Not that I would.
The new glasses came in today, and while similar to my old pair, they are nevertheless, um...shall I say...bold.
