Not sure whether to cry or shout for joy!

Preschool Classes

So, it hit me, I mean really hit me today that next week is the last week of Preschool for this year. In some ways, I am so excited to have a break, but oh my, I will miss those kids. A few of them were in my class last year too, so it will be really hard not to have them coming back. They are so fun, and also very funny.
A couple months ago I got out the q-tips for a glueing project and Kennadee says to me "silly teacher those aren't for glue, they're for our ears" like DUH how could I make such a stupid mistake. There's also the funny comments during playtime when the kids say the wrong name for things, like calling the elevator an excavator! I just LOVE my job and all those cute faces pictured above.

So here's the question, do I cry or shout for joy???

Wicked Prehistoric Primary???

No that is not what I think of Primary. That's just what we've been up to lately. First off, thanks to my awesome sister-in-law and friend, Shane and I were both able to see "Wicked" and yes it totally ROCKED! It's the best show I've ever seen...AWE SOME!!!!!! (Hopefully I can post some pics later)
The next thing we've had going on is a report for Austin. He chose to do it on the great Triceratops. The picture is from the poster we are putting together, I just thought it was a great shot!
Last but not least, we had our Primary Activity that I was in charge of, on Saturday. Everyone survived and I think it even turned out okay! It was kind of a stressful week last week, but fun as well.
That about catches us up, until the end of this week which brings Shane and Morgans birthdays...PARTY!!!
