So, we all made it through the feast happy (most of us, Grayson) and well fed (all of us)! I want to again send a shout out to Ms. Sally and Ms. Carly for all of the hard work they put into today's shindig. I really was not up to par, and they totally just picked up and ran with the whole thing. THANK YOU GUYS! I don't know what I would do without you!!
The kids were so great in their little performances today. In the red room, all of the children said that they were thankful for their mommies or daddies, except Jay...who is thankful for the zoo. You gotta love it as a parent when you get overlooked thanks to the likes of a couple of baboons and some overly sing-songy lorikeets! Sorry, Chad and Holly...better luck next year!
Once all of the parents and grandparents left today, the kids were still very wound up and excited. They were all running around and talking and all of the sudden, Kian said, "You guys, we were so great! That was a great practice!" I'm not sure what he thought the true performance was going to entail, but apparently you all weren't it. Maybe he thinks it's all a big rehearsal for Thanksgiving '09...
Once we finally got everyone calmed down, and we were sooooo close to having the lunch mess cleaned up, Harrison said, "What's for snack?" Sally and I both froze in mid table wipe, blew our sweaty hair out of our faces, and looked at one another. I said to Harrison, "Are you kidding me??" He goes, "Well, I never had any lunch." Like it's my fault!!! Don't worry, Cristi, we fed the little angel and all of his friends. They all should have left that school today stuffed like the little turkeys they are!
Lots of cute moments today...true to form for the little cuties they are.
And one more...from last week. We were in the computer lab, and I was helping Cooper log onto his computer. The game he was playing lists all of the children's names, and they have to click their name to log into a saved game. I was doing this for Cooper...only I was clicking on Owen's name (in case you don't know Cooper and Owen, they are IDENTICAL twins). Cooper didn't say anything to me, just placed his little hand over mine on the mouse, drug the cursor to his name, clicked, and very quietly said, "There you go, Ms. Lori." It was almost like he felt bad for me! Bless his heart, I do it to them all the time, and they are both so patient with me. But in Owen's own words, "We are twins...and twins?? They look alike." Simply put.
Hope you all enjoyed today as much as we did. Have a wonderful holiday break and enjoy your little ones. We'll be anxiously awaiting their return on Monday!!
