Simple Woman's Daybook

~*~ Rhonda's Daybook~*~

Today is... Tuesday, September 7, 2010

Outside my window...it is raining! Hallelujah! Oh, how we have missed you!

I am thinking...I'm finally feeling like I can catch my breath, not as overwhelmed and exhausted. I have been super busy with my new job which entails being a pre-k teacher, but also implementing the pre-k program since this is the first year! It is a lot of work. I've already had to move my room, and will move again before the end of the year. Oh, the paper work...you don't even want to know about that!

I am thankful...that Michael has gone above and beyond helping me at school and home. Seriously!

I am wearing...My new plaid shirt, carpi's, and the jewelry and shoes are off. I always take those things off first!

I am remembering...what a wonderful family I have! I'm so thankful for them.

I am creating

...labels for all the manipulatives in my room. Also this blog post! Yea!! I will do better this month!

I am going...to do Zumba with other teachers after school, and then go get more supplies for my classroom. Well that changed when they hired a new K teacher TODAY! I'm in her room until my room is done. No, they are not moving me, but I had to help her go through the closet since it has my pre-k and k stuff in it! I'm still waiting on hubby to get home so I can go get supplies.

I am reading...lots of children's books daily, and not much else.

I am hoping/praying... that my family has a great school year. Cameron is now a 4th grader, Caden is in 1st, Aaron is a sophomore in college, Michael teaches AP Chemistry, and AP Biology, and me...pre-k. We are all about school in this family!

I am hearing...the pitter-patter of the rain...I wish. It sounds better than just the TV and hum of my lap top.

On my mind...Michael's birthday is on Thursday! I want to make it special!

From the learning rooms...Cameron is the Star VIP this week. He is excited about that. One of my best friends is his teacher. She is so wonderful and an excellent teacher...I'm so thankful! That was an answered prayer!

Caden has made it his goal to not get his ticket pulled this year. I love that he is becoming a goal setter. Well, let's just say that hasn't worked so far. One day at a time sweet boy, one day at a time!

Pondering these words: A little boy in my class got his finger pinched today which left a red/purple mark, so I know it hurt. I told him he is so brave. He replied, "when I get hurt, I just smile." Precious!

From the kitchen... My hubby has taken over for a while...seriously! See he DESERVES an awesome birthday!

Around the house... lots of things to be done. I haven't hit my stride at home yet, but it will come. I'm getting back to the Fly Baby basics.

One of my favorite things
...My new job. No matter how tough it gets, it is my passion, and they are so stinkin' cute!

Hi Rhonda!

Wow! You are a busy girl! I love those little pre-k kids too, they are so adorable! I volunteered at my grandson's 1st grade class last week, it was so fun, kids really do say the darnedest things!

Happy birthday to Michael!


MiMi said...

Wow, you have been BUSY!
I wish my preschooler had YOU as a teacher, because even though I LOVE his teacher, you seem to really LOVE LOVE it. I think that makes ALL the difference.

Shawn said...

It's teachers like you that make parents like me go above and beyond when giving thanks!

You'll get back in the swing of things soon I'm sure!

Happy early Birthday Michael!

I can tell that you love to teach and the children will feel that giant spirit of yours. I think it is so awesome when you really get to do a job that you love.
I am retired from my favorite job. I was a hospice home health nurse.
Some people would say how can you do this. I had so many special and spiritual experiences and loved caring for my patients. It was a blessing in my life.
Keep up the good work and enjoy the moments.

Becca said...

Good to "hear" from you! I was wondering how everything was going for you. How is the C25K going??

Bless your heart. I am so excited school is going well. I remember those little ones can be a good workout. I love the comment from your little one on when he gets hurt.
Don't worry about the blogging routine, I think we are all kind of out of the loop.
I have been meaning to email you and see how close you live to Mammoth Spring AR. It is just over the Missouri border. That is where we dropped off our race car motor and if you are close maybe we could met up when we go pick it up.
Hope you have a great week!
