Daisy, the 5th grader, looking so studious.
O.k., here’s the thing. I hate clutter. I hate messes. It gives me stress, and I can’t concentrate. So, I’m constantly nagging my little students to ‘keep your stations clean!!!’ Which makes this next photo of my desk to ironically hypocritical!
Yeah Mom, practice what you preach!! This is what it looks like when the teacher is grading papers, entering grades on the computer, making cards, writing thank-you notes….I know, excuses, excuses.
Our maps. The world, and our beloved Philippines. We’re proud because we mounted and hung these ourselves!
Neo the cutie pie, playing patiently outside the schoolroom door.
Ally's writing assignment: "Meeting Neo for the First Time"
I was never so happy as when we brought Neo home. He was in Cagayan De Oro at that time. When I got out of the truck it was really hot, I almost sweated! When we stepped inside I saw a big play area and lots of toys and some kids. Then we arrived at a room full of babies. A woman went into the nursery and picked up the baby we were going to adopt. Mom and Dad hadn't met him yet. Neo- the baby boy was so cute and little! Dad held him and then Mom held him. I was really happy and excited that we were going to have a new baby!"
