Cooper and the Crib

Today at school Cooper got out, fell out of the crib! I'm not really sure how it happened exactly. The babies sleep in double decker cribs where the side rails go up and down like a garage door. He sleeps in the top and somehow he managed to lift the rails up and the teachers heard him crying. They go in and find him standing on the floor!!! So, did he fall down and cry? Did he fall down, pass out and then wake up and cry? And then he threw-up in the car on the way home. So, we are keeping a close watch on him. I've called the Dr. and they told me what to watch out for. It's just so scary. Please keep Coop in your prayers. And his mommy to keep her mind from wandering and thinking the worst.

Those Devilish Eggs!

Okay, now I know why they are called Deviled Eggs, because they are the devil to peel! Maybe it was because I was peeling FIVE DOZEN! Everything would be going along great and then there would be one that just wouldn't want to give up its shell. Therefore some have a few scars and wounds. Next time I volunteer to make deviled eggs, I'm having a peeling party. So, don't be surprised when you get an invite. And for those UCC people coming to the teacher's appreciation banquet Sunday night, no complaints about the eggs. Just know they were each touched with love and a few devilish thoughts! Enjoy.

Young At Heart

"I'm so EXCITED!" Austin said as he slapped his little hands to his cheeks when he saw the snow. We bundled up as quickly as we could and the first thing he did was stick out his tongue to catch snowflakes. Then he was even more excited and said, "It really is snowing!" He and Cooper's first snow made me feel young at heart. They were soooo cute playing in it. What great memories were made today!

If you don't have anything nice to say...

I took my 4 year old class to see Winnie-the-Pooh today at ASF. It was really good! All the students seemed to enjoy the performance. Austin and Olivia from the 3 year old class came too and they were able to sit through it and enjoyed it. I just got discouraged afterwards when a parent commented "Well that was...interesting". I don't know if they were expecting Disney World costumes or what, but the actors did a wonderful job! That one comment just let all the air out of my sail. Everyone was excited, worked hard organizing the trip, and no thanks. I won't let that one keep me down, that's why as teachers we have to expose children to all the arts and opportunities because their parents won't do it. And teach children at a young age that "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all".

Anyways, here are some Christmas pictures because I'm just now getting on this blog spot thing.

They helped brighten my day looking back at them, maybe they'll brighten yours too.

The First One

Okay, after hearing all the girls talk about their blogspots, I've finally created one too. This is all new to me and I really don't know what I'm doing. But I should have plenty of time to work on it today. I'm keeping the boys in trying to get them better. Especially Coop! I don't want to go through what we did two months ago with him. Now I feel like the over protective mom when he gets the slightest cough, runny nose, etc.
