2nd Grade is Great!!

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted anything. Wow! Getting back in the school routine has been kicking my behind.  It's been great though. I love my second graders! I have a funny group of little people. I've learned all sorts of interesting things in the last 7 days.

I found out that the middle finger is really called the "curse finger." Yep! I found that out when one little guy was telling me about his fall off the treadmill this summer and how he scratched his "curse finger." He also talks to his cat and his cat talks back. He's got some sort of amazing talent where he can read his cat's mind. Of course when you are a daddy to a cat, you are able to do those sort of things. At least that's what he tells me. :)

Today one of my guys wore his pajamas to school under his clothes. When I asked him if he forgot to take them off this morning his response was priceless. He said "Of course not, Mrs. C, I put them on so that I can just take my clothes off tonight and be ready for bed. I need to get to bed early now that we are back in school, ya know." I agree that he does need to get to bed early. BUT, considering it is about 98 degrees outside and we went out for about 10 minutes at the end of the day, I'm not so sure how great of an idea that one was. You can just imagine what a Sweaty Betty he was! ha!

This is just one reason I love teaching. I get to laugh a lot. Of course there are so many other reasons.

I miss all of my blogging friends. Hopefully this week I'll be able to get back on track and catch up with everyone.

Oh my gosh that is so adorable! Children are priceless. They are just amazing, adorable little people. It makes you wish we could all stay that sweet and naive without the temper tantrums. lol

Happy back to school! Oh my goodness, these little folks are so incredibly funny! Out of the mouths of babes....

The Pajama man is a riot! And "he talks to cats" sounds precious.

Looks like you are off to a year of learning and lots of fun.

Write to us and let us know how things are progressing and know that I pray for you always.

That does sound fun! You'll still be able to give me kindergarten advice, right? :)

This is one of the reasons I love kids - too funny!

I have been missing you too! This summer has been a busy one and I have really missed keeping up with all my blogging friends. I continue to keep your adoption in prayer.

So glad that your students are giving you lots of smiles already! My sister is a second grade teacher and loves that age, too. She taught her older son two years ago and this year she has the younger one in her class. :)

Glad to know you're doing well! Those kids are sure lucky to have such a sweet teacher!
