Day 29 of 40: Student Story of the day..

"We just got back from a field trip to the Nature Center. There were all these cool animals and we learned about wetlands and caves and birds AND turtles! Tomorrow we're going snowshoeing up in the mountains and my dad is going to be a parent volunteer....Friday is going to be "hat day" and that's when you come to our class and teach writing. AND I had pizza for lunch! You know what Mrs. M? It's a REALLY good time to be a kid". -A., age 10.

Ah, to be young again.


Happy Wednesday, friends

  1. Oh how I miss the excitement of childhood. To be young and stress free. If I could just bottle up all that energy and innocence...

    1. I wish I had the energy, too. I think back and relish those days. I loved elementary school. Cascades was the place to be :) Imagine, being little again and playing til dark with all of our friends on warm nights...those are the memories that make me smile.

  2. Being a kid rocks!.. As long as you're a kid under 13. No math tests, early outs, recess, school lunch, overalls and dodgeball.. That was the life! You don't know whatcha got until its gone! Fun is definitely wasted on the youth.. ;) haha classy little children!

    1. Dearest Alice? Overalls? Do you only know farmer children? HA! We never had early outs, but my daughter made the best of them. I love how you name recess, lunch and PE as fun memories. Why not CORE testing and Computer Lab?

    2. Yeah, Alice, why is computer lab not fun? Back in my day, we didn't get to use computers all day so that once a week trip to the computer lab was a big deal! I owned Oregon Trail and Math Blaster - talk about memories.

    3. Oh, I'm sorry you couldn't appreciate your quill and paper hour like me. The computer lab was fun... but pong gets old after so many hours. Don't get me started on Type-it-Right. Jeez. I never could type faster than 100 wpm proudly. Shellybean, i happen to know for a fact that your daughter had not only a pair of overalls, but also short-overalls, khaki overalls, and about thirty multi-colored jumpers. The thing here is, your farmer stereotype is not incorrect. The very kind and accepting classmates of your daughter held the exact same perspective..

      01010101010101- That means your blog is the classiest out there and you rock! :)

    4. Oh Alice, never let those mean kids bother you. Remember, I taught most of them and know the skeletons that live in their closets. We ALL are struggling with something some people just feel better taking it out on others. Love the binary code- thanks chic!

  3. Just reading about all those activities makes me tired. I think any time is a good time to be a kid - ok, maybe not before child labor laws. I understand the excitement about Friday - it is special when Mrs. M. teaches your class!

    1. Mrs. M. is looking forward to Saturday, and a BBQ with friends. Thanks, though. I DO bring my "excitement" to class :)

  4. I don't feel I fully appreciated child hood- there's someone there to tell you to wake up, eat, sleep, etc. How wonderful to not be responsible for anything... oh to be a kid.

  6. Loved this. Yeppers, this kiddo has got it right!
    Alas, "school days" are not my fondest memories of childhood, although a few friends made school tolerable, just kinda. And "our" Mrs. B made school pretty darn special, too. But man, those days of playing WAY past dark.... hide-n-seek, Bloody Murder (what was THAT anyways????) Kick-the-can.... THOSE are MY fondest memories. Funny how a few people pop up pretty consistently through ALL those times. Makes me smile. <3

    Thanks for those fond memories, chicklet. <3

    1. I think the friendships and games of which you speak are my fondest memories of all. Oh, Mrs. B. She was the one who taught me most about teaching.. Isn't that odd? <3 you!
