the diary of a midget wrangler: lately

lately in Room 5,
we have been having WAY too much fun.
i thought it a crime to keep you out of the loop,
so here are some updates on the last month or so...

a couple of weeks ago was Teacher Appreciation Week,
or as I like to call it - delightful.
i have the SWEETEST parents who have really taken good care of me in my first year. they started the week off with a little surprise basket full of my "favorites!"
favorite drink: diet coke
favorite candy: chocolate covered cinnamon bears
favorite food: italian
favorite way to relax: a little pedi
aaannnddd, a little cash!
then, they made this darling poster for my bulletin board!
the theme was:
"look how we've grown!"
on each of the leaves of the flowers,
each of my babies wrote one thing they loved about me.
they were SO cute.

the week leading up to st. patty's day,
we had a little visitor sneak into our room and leave us a surprise.
this is what we got the first day:
he even toppled over a few books and left us some leprechaun dust.

the next day,
he left us a little present!
a cute shamrock for my door,
and some "magic leprechaun powder" for the kiddlets.
per his instructions,
we mixed the powder with a little milk until it turned into a tasty treat.
then we made a graph about whether or not we liked the "magic leprechaun powder."
the answer was a resounding "YES!"
on the actual day
he brought us our very own pot o' gold!
complete with lucky charms, a green airhead, and some gold coins.
last but not least,
i had to include these two pictures.
i don't know how much time my midgets spend on youtube, but apparently they get weird humor just as much as we adults do.
the best is the answer to question #3.
they laughed for a good 5 minutes straight.
(took us FOREVER to finish that test)
