The week started with Daniel's 5th birthday on Monday. He wanted to bring Superman cupcakes to share with his friends at school so Adrian & I spent Sunday night trying to do that. They didn't come out great (and there are no pictures - they were that bad!) But the kids loved them. What's not to love, chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing?? We all sang & had cupcakes as a family again that night too.
Tuesday wasn't really a party, but I had a super fun day volunteering in AJ's class room. I am so thankful that Tammy volunteers to watch the younger boys once each month so I can go into AJ's class. This month I was able to work with 4 kids who are struggling with learning their sight words. I was able to give them some one on one attention to work on those words. I also got to help the kids make their Valentine's for their families. I helped them do the hand prints for the cards. And I made a ton of copies making things a little easier on the teacher. I was exhausted after only 2 1/2 hours in the class room, I don't know how these teachers do it!!
|AJ's Valentine for us. I didn't help with his, only his class mates.|
Thursday AJ had his Valentine's Day party at school because he didn't have school on Friday. I was supposed to go back and volunteer again but Zak got pink eye so I wasn't able to. AJ was disappointed, but he had a blast anyway. The kids got to decorate sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles. They also had fruit & pretzels to snack on. And then each kid gave out Valentines to everyone in class. AJ was so excited to come home & read all his cards & see all his
I think I'll end there for now and finish up with rest of the week and the weekend in a post in the next day or two.
