I know this isn’t about Christmas, but it can’t be helped. I promise I am hard at work going through my NYC pictures because I can’t wait to share with you all the Christmas joy we found. We found a lot. If you compile our pictures, we found around 850 photos worth of Christmas joy.
In the meantime, I have four quick stories to share with you.
- My favorite game to play on vacation is, “guess how many pictures I took!” When I played with Rachel (my travel companion) she overshot by a bit. Rachel (my sister) then told me that she has figured out that I average about 220/day on vacation (I know, I am out of control) so her guess would have been much closer to the actual grand total from my camera which was 631 pics.
- I taught my kids what vowels are today. This involved me dressing up like a snowman (don’t ask) and giving them the two reasons that vowels are important (1. They all make two sounds – a long sound and a short sound. 2. There is at least one vowel in every word). Later in the day, a girl came up to me and said, “Miss K! The words on our paper have some of those famous letters!!!!”
- A student keeps trying to “listen to my earmuffs”. I will probably start dancing around next time I wear them to perpetuate the myth that I am listening to music through what apparently are really giant headphones
- This is my life right now. Learning is done. Which is a bummer since we still have over a week until break…
