If teaching doesn't work out...there is always Vegas

I have now been subbing for two districts and work daily (thank god). I've had overwhelming good experiences and very few bad ones (last Friday). One of the great things about subbing is getting to work with a variety of grades and schools. There are some schools that are overwhelmingly friendly and just have a great atmosphere and some where you feel ignored and isolated. This is a wonderful preview for when I'm looking for a full-time position.

Now that I've have repeat classes, I've had to up my "magic" tricks. Last week, I was with a class for two days that I had taught several weeks ago. They were so excited that I was coming back. Thank god for the Internet. I googled magic tricks and came prepared to entertain. The kids were so happy.

Tomorrow, I'm back teaching Cole's class again....time to get the cards ready.

We had a good Valentine's yesterday. I made Cole heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast and he insisted on making me breakfast, too. He made me a bowl of frosted mini-wheats with a copious amount of milk. We exchanged gifts. He got me a matching earring, necklace, bracelet set...that boy sure knows how to take care of his momma. It's nice to be loved.

New from the Star Wars Collection- A droid from the planet Jupiter.

Cole has lost his other top front tooth. I can't help but smile when I see this grin.
