We were making lists of dreams at school today.
Each kid got to then share one thing off of their list.
One boy's dream broke my heart.
He said "I want to live in a house."
I know they live in a trailer so I thought ok, sad but ok.
What I heard him say under his breath was the heartbreaking part.
"Where the roof does not leak and things can't fly in."
This little guy wants to live in a house where the roof doesn't leak and things can't fly in.

Count your blessings
Name them one by one
Count your many blessings
See what God has done

New Game

Cookie Monster now has turned picture taking into a game where you try to get the worst possible picture of Grover's Mama. . . He isn't funny. . . Here is 16 weeks :-) I go to the doctor next week and will update again after that.

We have completed 9 days of school.  
What a ride it has been!!!  
I have a very high needs group of kids and was not quite prepared for what I found when I opened up my class list. . . .
I have been blessed with a student teacher.
She left today to go back to classes for the rest of the semester.
I almost begged her to stay.We are making progress.
It is slow progress. 
Today gave me hope for the year.
And when all else fails, I laugh. . . 

Here are a few funny quotes from a particularly funny student. . . 

"I only have supplies to donate in my backpack." - my response was "like donate to your desk?!"
"These kindergarteners are a lot of work!" -ummm do you even know how much work you are?
in a silent classroom where she was being loud and I whispered that she needed to stop squeaking her chair "YOU MEAN BECAUSE I AM BEING TOO LOUD AND EVERYONE IS READING?"- the caps mean she yelled. . . in a silent room. . . yep that's her.

oh and another little boy is going to “even put it on a piss of paper that seid homework in my agenda so I dunt forgit to do it.”
