Let's Go Fly A Kite
It really feels like summer here already. It seems like I was just worrying about the kids not having enough pants, and now we're pulling out the shorts and t-shirts. On Saturday we decided it was a good day to fly kites. Trav had been telling the kids we could do it for a little while now, so we headed to the park with our new kites. I was surprised how well they worked, and how much fun the kids had, but have to say it was a bit hot, I'm so not ready for that!
I finished my bag for Laura, she asked a long time ago about one, and it took me way too long to get around to it! (Next time Laura just tell me you need it right away, I do better with deadlines!) Anyway it turned out cute, and I hope she likes it.
Lastly I'm posting a picture of my new primary lifesaver, CTR Beans. I made this for my primary class out of a little frustration. It's really hard to keep the attention of four-year-olds beyond 2 minutes, so I've turned to bribery. They don't get more than like five each per class time, but they totally work to get their attention and to get them to answer questions. Plus when they get too noisy I just shake the bottle to get them to pay attention to me, if only this worked so well at home!
