safaried in? Well that won't happen for awhile. We got so much rain for awhile that we almost flooded 2 different times.

So far, so good. Matthew is loving 1st grade. He rides the bus home. First time ever. He was very excited and then accidently got confused and tried to go around the bus the wrong way. It made him not want to ride anymore, but he has little friends to sit with, which has made it more fun. His teacher has a lending library in the room, so he's brought a book home both days. Both days, Mr. England played the guitar. Last night was the Back to School concert and Mr. England's band played. We all enjoyed it.
As for me, I'm tickled pink that since I have 8 bus riders this year to drop off at 2 different locations (3 that all went to the same location last yr.) I get back too late to do the 1st MIRP group I was assigned. This means I only have one to deal with and I'm feeling optimistic that this year with go better with the middle schoolers and me. I have a new preschool teacher and a whole new curriculum we are introducing. (So far every teacher I've been an aide for has retired at the end of the year. I wonder if it's me...) It is very very hectic, but I think it will be great. Afterschool is marching along like it always does. I expect it to be the same. Sometimes that's a good thing. So far my energy is keeping up with the pace. Next week being a full week will be the real test. I may be totally fried by Friday and I can't have coffee to cope!

Optimus Prime last summer.
The Crafty Crow.
frozen popsicle chalk. We used flour instead of cornstarch.
Se7en. I liked the results a lot.
One day we found watercolors. The one of the right is me petting a turkey. Inspired by turkey hand prints.
How does she?. We played with it outside one night. It worked pretty well.
Ahhh, sweet summertime.
