The week before Halloween was a busy one! On Monday we went to Bishops, Tuesday I started my two week turn of teaching Joy School with a field trip to Zittle's Pumpkin Patch, and on Friday I volunteered in Noah's class for Scarecrow Day. It was exhausting and so much fun!
Sweet Luke. He sure loved that we left Leah with a friend, and it was just the two of us for a while.
Luke field tripped with Noah's class the past two years, but I didn't know he actually remembered it. He knew a lot of the answers that were asked, and loved sharing what he knows.
Noah and I were both excited beyond words for Scarecrow Day. His teacher's scheduled time for parent volunteers doesn't line up with my mom life/schedule for now, so I haven't been in the classroom at all. Finally, I was getting a chance to see how things run and get a feel for the climate in Noah's classroom.
I loved being there! And I'm pretty sure Noah loved that I was there too. Along with thanking me at least a dozen times, he was not shy about telling all kinds of kids that "MY mom is the one over there doing the face painting."
I was not too thrilled to be assigned face painting by Mrs. Chan, but I fulfilled my responsibility. Face painting is definitely not my talent, but it passed the judgement of five and six year olds just fine.
I caught a picture of Noah and Everett during a quick break from face painting.
And Noah jumped into a picture with his buddy Peyton.
What a great week though! Field trip and teaching with one and spending the morning with another in his classroom. This is literally the stuff my mama dreams are made of!
