Kindergarten Here I Come

Today I am subbing in my friend's Kindergarten class. I'm so excited. I LOVE teaching Kindergarten. To make things even nicer, she only has 14 kids in her class. How great would that be. Sam's class this year is 24 (that is too big in my opinion). It is only a half day K which is fine with me. I might even be able to go out and do some testing afterwards. With the holidays around the corner (yikes) I need to start squirreling away as much moola as I can.
Yesterday's trip to the pumpkin patch was kind of a bust. We went to a different patch and it wasn't as good. First off, no hayride. What is up with that?? They did have some animals and lots of games for the kids to play, but the kids wanted to play the games and not get pumpkins. There was a HUGE pile of wood chips and the most of the kids spent their time playing king of the hill. I don't know, I always enjoy going out into the field and watching the kids try and find the biggest pumpkin and then watch as they realize Mommy isn't going to carry it and so they must rethink their choice. I'm thinking that maybe another trip to the pumpkin patch is in order. I think the weather is supposed to be good this weekend.
Okay, this is kind of random, but I just had to vent. Yesterday I had to buy a card. Now I'm not a "card person" and all I really wanted was a blank card big enough to send a CD in. Can I just say that I went to 3 stores and was only able to find 3 blank cards (and they were pretty lame to boot) I really missed the days of the Far Side cards. I would always send those. They weren't mushy or dorky, just very funny. So after 3 stores and an hour of searching I went to purchase my card and it was $3!! What?? But I needed to get it into the mail so bought it. I can only imagine how much the fancy cards with music cost, yikes. Okay, I'm done venting.
Well, it is 6:40 and I need to get going. I hope everyone has a good Thursday :0)

Good luck with all those kiddos. I love kindergarteners...they are so innocent and sweet yet have learned just enough to crack me up!!!! Have a great day subbing!

Hope you had a good day.

I am with you on the cards. They are ridiculous. My daughter always wants to get the music ones for her friends' birthdays and they are about $5. She doesn't quite understand that we've bought one gift and the card is almost like another gift. :)

How was your sub day? I was shocked by the cost of a card the other day also. What the? How can a little piece of pretty paper cost so much. Guess that is why all these creative ladies are making them. I can't even go there so I bitch, then buck up and pay whatever they want.
Have a great weekend it's suppose to be nice here.
