Shoebox races! That's his mom Dawn on the left. The kids had to run with shoeboxes on, ring bells on chairs and get to the finish line first. The prize? Tootsie Rolls AND candy cane erasers! I was given a few Tootsies and one candy eraser from Em. He's good at sharing. He was also told "No diving at the finish line!" which he thought was hilarious. Later in the game, the boys put on mittens so as to make the game more difficult. It was really cute to watch. Most of the kids were jacked up on sugar by this point. And I mean, AMPED up!!
Nice book selection right IN the classroom!! Do you see Judy Blume's "Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing" up there? LOVE!!
We went out for lunch after and I had too much food. He chose mac and cheese with veggies and mandarin oranges "because it's healthy" and refused dessert due to health reasons. LOL. He's very concerned for a 9 1/2 year old. I had to twist his arm to get him to try my creme brulee. He did end up liking it but told me "I may just order more carrots." So cute. He also made Brad a homemade birthday card (his bday was yesterday) and bought him an E.T. shirt. His affinity for vintage items from our era always makes me giggle.
I'm off to relax! Have a beautiful evening and a lovely weekend!
