Year of the Jaguar

Well, Ben finally decided what he’s going to be for Halloween this year. It’s different…and he loves it. He also informed us tonight that he’d like GG to take him to South America so he can see some real jaguars. I told him he’d have to discuss that with her personally.DSC_0013 DSC_0007 DSC_0003

A New, Final, Glamorous Costume

First Amelia wanted to be Ariel (I finished that costume weeks ago) for Halloween, then she wanted to be a vampire (never started that costume), and finally, now she wants to be a witch. Upon further inquiry and web surfing, she specified that she wanted to be some sort of white witch. Of course. I showed her the fabric I’d bought to make an Elsa dress for her (from Frozen), but she insisted that she didn’t want to be Elsa, she wanted to be a silver, sparkly…witch. So now, at last, we have our silver, sparkly, Glamor Witch… (I only had enough “diamond ribbon” to go around half the hat, but you get the idea. I’ll have to make a run to the fabric store to get more to officially call this costume complete.)DSC_0002 DSC_0009 DSC_0007 DSC_0006 DSC_0015 DSC_0016 DSC_0017

The Sweetest Pickle

One way our school tries to build character in our students is through a program called Sweet Pickles. When a teacher sees a student do something nice or helpful without being asked, the teacher puts a piece of paper telling about it in the Sweet Pickle jar. At Assembly each week, a few pieces of paper are drawn from the Sweet Pickle jar and read aloud. The students whose names and good deeds are read aloud come up to be recognized in front of everyone at Assembly, and then they also get a special treat at lunch that day. It’s a pretty simple program, but it’s all meant to encourage kids to do the right thing even when no one is looking. Today at Assembly, Ben’s name was pulled from the Sweet Pickle jar. He was very proud and was equally excited about getting a treat at lunch. I was even prouder though.DSC_0001
