School Starts!

School started this week! Jake is my big second grader and Nati Grace started Kindergarten. I am so proud of both of them. We made it through the week just fine. The conversation this morning was an interesting one.

This morning's happenings: Nati Grace declared, "Bub, I do not need you walking me to my classroom anymore. I am a big girl and I know where I am going!" Jake looked back and said, "Sure." Then, without the slightest hesitation, he turned to me and with a wink said, "Don't worry, Mom. I'll hide around the corner and make sure she gets there."

The Lord's Supper... Jake Style!

Thought you would enjoy Jake's thoughts that he had on communion this morning. First, he has bad allergies. Secondly, he is a new believer. Third, he's the PK. He thought he would join the three together!

This morning while getting ready for school I was giving Jake his daily dose of Claritin. He quickly asked, "Mom, this isn't the Benadryl stuff I had to take yesterday, is it?"

Benadryl does to Jake like it does to most of us... puts him in lala land and he sleeps for a couple of hours. But, since he was having serious allergy issues yesterday, I knew the Benadryl would be a quick help.

"No, it isn't Bendadryl. Why?" I asked and nothing could prepare me for his answer. "Well, I was just thinking that the next time we have the Lord's Supper at church, we could give everybody Benadryl. It looks like blood and everyone will feel real good after they drink it! Then, Daddy wouldn't have to preach because they would all be asleep."

So, beware of the Communion Cup!

Hair Net Ready!

The field trip was rather normal to begin with. Lots of first graders, busy teachers, talkative parents, and the smell of diesel school buses were surrounding us! Stevie B's Pizza was in full field trip mode!

On deck for the day was a tour of the local Pizza Parlor kitchen, yummy lunch, and then a glance behind the scenes at the Publix Grocery Store next door. The kitchen was interesting and the pizza was even better tasting. Jake definitely got his $3.99 worth from the buffet. Man, that kid can EAT!

We were then off to Publix. What a wonderful lesson for the kids. They learned in the Pharmacy Dept. that it really is important to be able to count by fives. The Produce Dept. was a reminder that fruit and vegetables really are good for you. The warehouse in the back of the store amazed them, particulary the ice cream freezers! The Bakery was a reminder that Science is used in everyday life and the cookies were good too! The Meat Dept. provided a lesson in dividing a chicken into pieces and also a reminder that I don't look so hot in a hair net!

Before the next field trip I will try to remember to practice the art of the hair net updo! I'll be ready!

Jake can eat his weight in pizza!
