1. We made Popcorn Bread today. So fun. So yummy.
2. Andrew and I (and by 'Andrew and I', I really mean I) rewrote the song "Another One Bites The Dust" into a clean up song. Same tune but we changed the lyrics to "Tinker Toys in the Box". Great song. Turns out it really is the best song to sing in the stroller on the way to the Post Office. Especially if you can sing it really loud.
3. When I taught the little ones we would start our day with a 'Morning Message'. It was just a letter I'd write to the class every morning that would say things like "it's snowing!" or "we're going to the farm today!" or "I didn't get enough coffee this morning. Who wants to run to Dunkin' Donuts for me?" Well I am doing a modified version of this with Andrew. I write him a little letter each morning and then I read it to him. Twice. And then he reads it. And then he finds letters and words he knows in it, like 'Andrew'. And he looks for numbers, etc. Well this morning I asked Dave to write the letter. This is what he wrote:
This kid is going to get a great education.
