A Day in Preschool

Well, I'm still in the borrowed house.  More about that in a minute.  Today has been  fun because I spent the day in Pre-K!  (Almost made me want to return to work, almost... ) 
It was my turn to read to students in Prince O's class.  Can't believe my baby is in school!  He has to be on the bus at 7 a.m.  So early! 

Can't you see how happy he is to be awake at this hour?  He's like his mom when it comes to mornings.

He chose the books for me to read.  His top pick was:

Love illustrations in kid's books!  These are especially colorful!

To go with the elephant/circus theme, we made bags of popcorn for snacks.
Look at this cute popcorn bag, purchased at Dollar Tree.  Pkg of 10- $1
Cute until you fill 20 bags with microwaved popcorn.  My house is smelling very buttery!

For the teachers, Halloween pails from Target $1 bin.  (All of the goodies came from Target.)  Don't you love those fluffy little pens and fall themed sticky note pads? Ok, maybe not.  That's the teacher coming out in me.

 I saved the best for last.  This was my audience after I read two stories.  Aren't their expressions hilarious?  My little guy is posing for me in the back.  Otherwise, I'm sure he'd be as enthused as the rest of the bunch!  Oh to be in preschool!  Not a care in the world.

Speaking of reading books, this cute "boy reading book" statue was outside of a restaurant we visited a few days ago. Would love to have him in my backyard!

Thanks to so many of you who offered encouragement over my a/c issues.  Such a minor thing in life compared to what some are going through, I'm almost embarrassed to have mentioned it.  We've decided to stay put in the borrowed house simply b/c we can't afford to move.  The a/c is working for now and thankfully it has cooled off so we don't need it as much.  We will deal with it again when the weather changes. 
I keep promising a give away.  I really do have one.  I'm in the process of changing my blog but waiting on the designer to deliver my template.  Would like to do everything at the same time.

If you want to do something worthwhile, go volunteer in a school.  If you can't do that, gather your children, grandchildren or any kids you can find, and read them a book.  Great way to forget your troubles and see the world through the eyes of a child!

First I have to say, your son is ADORABLE!! Yes, preschool is so much fun. I have so many, many years of awesome volunteering, now just memories, in all my girls schools.

Awww...your little Prince is sooo cute, Tammy! How fun to read to a group of children, it takes me back to when I taught pre-school and K in the Christian school. I loved it so much. I love children's books, too, I used to have quite a collection, but I have given them to my children for their children and they all love books, too. I'd like to have that boy reading a book statue in my yard, too.

Enjoy your day!
Hugs, Cindy

Oh I love this post and I too love to read, not only to myself but to my grandkids! I did S.M.A.R.T. ("start making a reader today") at our local grade school and the kids just loved it and so did I!
