"I HAVE to do the next one or else I'm quitting the magic show."
One boy was so blown away by the surprise ending of the trick that he threw his head back in amazement and smacked it on the edge of a table.
This kindergarten show was the most entertaining one to watch yet because the audience was cracking ME up!

Apparently I must be doing more FB these days. After years of blogging and Brian reading my blog to know what's going on in his own house he finally said he is considering joining FB. His mom is updating him on what's going on at the house these days from FB! Now the big debate...do I post this to the blog so he can see it our not???
I decided to post it.

"We'll why do you care if she had a terrible day?" came the reply from my fend for yourself, don't bother me with your problems daughter. Such a Maddie comment. I will remember this when she is running up cell phone bills talking to her girlfriends at sixteen and seeing every move they make as critical and important to be discussed and reviewed in excruciating detail. Maybe then she will understand my reply, "Because she's a girl and I'm a girl and girls need to talk and share with their buddies. And also because we are friends."

During class today they read a story about a dog that gets old and his body is tired and he dies. Then the children gathered leave and little flowers from the school grounds nearby and took them and decorated his grave. Jacob was fine when I picked him up until I asked the question of his teacher and he was reminded of poor Snickers. He asked Jennifer to show him how to find it so he could show me.
We went out and he showed me and burst into sobs. Poor Jacob was so terribly sad. I did my best to give him hugs and reassure him it would be okay while juggling shoeless Ashlyn who wanted to attack the flowers on the grave and walk all over it. I wish there was something I could do to make it better. I know it's hard for kids. Ben still sobs over each fish he loses.
Good call by Ms. Jennifer not to do April Fools on a day like today. It would just be way too confusing.
She also decided she wanted to make a copy of the pages of her own so she could write down why each of the things were important. She finished writing this morning and I got a picture of her but I love that Ashlyn is licking her paper in the background. She was supposed to be doing the same project Maddie was. Here is what Madison wrote:
This week after school Jacob wanted to watch TV and to keep him busy I said, "We have a bunch of old bananas. Before we watch TV, will you please help me bake banana muffins?"
His reply was delivered with an over abundance of dramatic flair, "No. And you shall eat them all yourself. You know, like the little red hen did." He said it exactly like I read it from the book. I almost fell over laughing.
