I start EFY this Sunday. I am so excited. I have been studying and getting ready ever since I got my acceptance letter. Last Saturday we had an ALL DAY training event. When I say ALL DAY I mean ALL DAY 10am-5pm. Im fortunate enough to have my work give me time off for the weeks I'm working EFY.
During circle time one of my sprouts turned to me and said "How come you are wearing boy shoes today?" I looked down at my shoes and the only think I could say was "Ya these are kind of boy shoes." Later that day he said another funny thing. I bought a new curling iron. It's really big and makes my curls super relaxed. This was the first day I had tried it out. He said to me "Did you forget to brush your hair today?" I said "No I did my hair today." He then said "My hair looks like that when I first wake up and then my mom brushes it and it fixes it." YES!!!! If I'm not lookin good to a 3 year old then there is no way a 23 year old will want to date me. I laughed all day long.
I am in love with this book. It is so good. This book is about a girl in WWII. Her mom leaves her with a foster family, her brother dies, she hides a Jewish man in her basement, she attends Hitler's Youth Academy, her city is bombed and so many more things. The book is narrated by death. In this book the girl learns to read. She learns how powerful words can be. She attends many of Hitler's speeches and realizes how powerful his words are and how his words are affecting her life and her community in German. If you are looking for something to read you MUST read this! I read it in about 4 days. I could not put it down!!!
McCall is currently on the AP art history trip in San Francisco. It's weird to think that 5 years ago I was on the same trip. McCall and Will (my best friend Jane's little brother) decided to recreate a picture that me and Jane took on this exact trip. So cute!
About a month ago I wanted to burn some music for my class. I wanted them to be exposed to the classic children songs that I grew up with.
Songs such as: The itsy bitsy spider Head shoulders knees and toes 1 2 buckle my shoe Bingo Mary had a little lamb Twinkle twinkle little star I'm a little tea pot and so on
When I put the cd on not much happened. They almost didn't even notice it was on. They only knew a few songs. I went back on iTunes and I saw the top children's songs were those from popular tv shows- Handy Manny, Bob the Builder, Max and Ruby, Diego, Imagination Movers, Yo Gabba Gabba and so on. When I put that cd on I swear the kids thought it was Christmas. They were screaming and jumping up and down. They knew all the words and exactly what tv show it was from. Wow have times changed since I was a kid.
I have been taking lots of Bikram yoga classes. My aunt and uncle own Salt Lake City Bikram. I have always really liked taking yoga classes so I thought I would try Bikram. The difference with this class is it is done in a room that is heated to 105 degrees. It is awesome!!!
Each class is 90 minutes long. The class goes through 26 poses.
