Just Chuggin’ Along

This past week was another busy one. Now that I’m subbing, my days are extra busy. I was able to experience some jobs that I haven’t done before (or haven’t done for a long time). One day, I helped out with some older kids that need some one-on-one or small group interventions. One of the boys attached himself to me right away. As we were walking to art, he asked me if I wanted to go to Mexico with his family for Christmas. He told me he was sure my mom and dad would say I could go. 🙂 Another day, I helped in the special needs class. That was actually rather fun, even though it was a lot of work, both physically and mentally. I made it through the day, though, and even avoided actually getting bit, even though the biter tried three different times through the day, haha. Once we get home from school, we jump right into after-school routines, dinner-making, and all that jazz. The kids have been enjoying fun holiday dress-up days and activities at school. It’s hard to believe that we only have one more week of school before winter break starts. I’m really looking forward to the holidays, though. I think we all are. Paul has been busy with work, fixing broken things (sometimes made more broken by people who thought they were fixing it, which makes it extra…fun). Just two more weeks until Christmas!

Just a girl in her church dress…with her bunny…and her…Halloween mask? This kid cracks me up.
I made banana bread last Sunday. I decided I didn’t REALLY need to toss the chocolate chips in some flour to coat them before adding them to the batter. Well, I was reminded what happens when I do that: all the chocolate chips sink to the bottom as the bread bakes (as opposed to staying evenly dispersed). I took this picture to remind myself not to take shortcuts like that, haha. It was still quite tasty, though!
Abigail’s teacher let her bring home this little Olaf for a sleepover. That woman sure gets her! Upon arriving home, Abigail immediately ran upstairs and got Anna and Elsa so that Olaf would feel at home.
Later she made Frosty the Snowman with Play-doh, but also made sure to make Frosty’s wife. That smile says it all!
The stuff one finds on the bottom of one’s shoe after teaching pre-k. It’s a googly-eye. This is one of the many reasons I take my shoes off as soon as I get home. Who knows what I’m gonna be tracking in!
Abigail giving a talk in Primary. She’s not reading yet, so she was happy I could be there to help her.
