“Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.”
― William Martin
When I was a Kindergarten Teacher, September and June were crazy busy months. I thought that things might change when I stopped teaching but it turns out, they are still crazy busy months! Without any more excuses, here is Week 36 and Week 37 of my Project 365.
244/365 Oh Wild Things… sometimes, you seem to be reenacting scenes from Lord of the Flies.
245/365 Sweet girl, I am so happy that you have such wonderful besties!
246/365 Little Man, you love being Back Catcher just like your big brother.
247/365 Taking MORE pictures for the Kindergarten photo book.
248/365 This grainy, blurry photo is evidence of a very fun Sushi lunch and Play Palace instead of school kind of day! Shhhhhh!
249/365 “Do you hear the Ice Cream truck?” Apparently an ice cream truck is the best way to clear 50 kids off a mini golf course in seconds. (Love the way my girl is holding her little brother.)
250/365 A hair “trim” for my girlie.
251/365 Little Man is obsessed with my iPhone.
252/365 Last Brownie meeting with her awesome friends.
253/365 These boys have been friends since they were two. SO happy they have each other!
254/365 Hanging in the dug out after hitting baseballs.
255/365 “My future’s so bright, I have to wear shades.”
256/365 If you could only have seen the 50 or so Q-tips being tossed in the air with the flowers…
257/365 Sweetheart, you had a wonderful time catching tadpoles with your bare hands.
