Yesterday, when I was correcting my new student for making fun of one of my little sweeties with speech issues (one of her many infractions since arriving on Tuesday), she said to me in the most nasty voice, "Well, if YOU hadn't interrupted me..I was..." Needless to say that's all she got out before she got a lecture for the record books about choices, kindness, and respect. What a little toot! It's going to be a fun 2 months until the end of the year!

This past weekend, we celebrated the J-man's 11th birthday with a highly anticipated nerf war. It was quite the event. A few days after the invitations went out, the questions started, "Can my dad come too?" or "Would it be okay if my husband stopped by?" So of course, I sent a message saying, "Dads are invited too," because we all know they are all just big kids at heart. I don't know who was more excited, J or his friends and their dads. Anyway, we started at the house with "Nerf Bootcamp" where they practiced their skills (many of my ideas where thanks too blackberryvine.blogspot.com and a few other nerf parties blogs). After Bootcamp was complete, we headed up to the school playground (it's in our neighborhood) for the epic battle. They had a great time and I'm sure they all slept incredibly well that night. The J-man had a fantastic time= Mission Accomplished!
|They played capture the flag. This was one team's base. No one won because they hid the flags too well, but they had great time just the same.|
