More From Wednesday

Here's a smidgen of our Wednesday (the other part of the day that didn't make it to the previous apple post...

Everyone printed the apple he/she brought to school!
Printing is one of my favorite
Art medium.

Anthony brought his new baby sister
for Show and Tell.
She is a beautiful baby who reminded me of my own little girls.
(They are now 22 and 23 years old mind you!)

Mr. Anthony is pretty cute himself.

WARNING: soapbox moment ahead...

Right after Show and Tell, our school had a "Lockdown Drill". I hate those things. I do realize that they are important but it seems we practice doing things that we most likely WOULDN'T really do in an actual emergency. What I AM sure of is, in an actual emergency, I will do everything possible to protect those children and they will be safe with me...even if I haven't practiced it before!

Having said that, there are some things I can't protect my little ducklings from...

Poor little Janey!
This is how her forehead looked when I picked her up from PE.
Apparently she was playing some serious cat and mouse game and
"took a header" into the gym floor.

She is one tough cookie.
She didn't cry.
She didn't complain.
She was actually kind of giddy.
I want to be like her when I grow up.

Now, I'm ready to do it all again next week.
