Tonight I was sitting at dinner and looked out over the window and saw a strange flying machine heading North close to the Pacific shore. We went outside and it was an osprey. I've only ever seen them at the air show. It was so cool.

San Diego County Fair

Today our school took a field trip to the fair, we grew plants and went to have them judged. The highlight of the fair was the pig races! They live those cute little guys and even the bigger pigs.

Pool party

I love the end of the school year all the parties and fun activities to bring the school year to an end. Today we had a pool party at one of my students house. We had a lifeguard and I was still watching like a mother hawk. I am going to miss my class next year.

Messy Day

Today one of my students was the teacher for the day. Our parent group had a silent auction to raise money and each class has a student be the teacher.
My student did all the regular stuff I have them do in the morning BUT in the afternoon we had messy time. They played Pie in the Eye where they had a plate of whip creme and passed it around, when the music stopped the face went into the whip creme. Then they painted themselves with pudding. That was their favorite thing ever. We played silly string and had a sundae bar they had a blast!

Paste White

Yesterday I decided I needed to try to get a little color only white legs. I have 2 occasion coming up that I will need to wear a dress and cannot have translucent legs showing. I barely got any color but figured a little bit a day is better than nothing.

Groovy bus

This afternoon when I got home this groovy bio-diesel bus was parked just down the street from me. Love the 60's inspired paint.

Star light. . .

Happy Birthday to me!!!

Today my class had an early birthday for me, they brought me in a California burrito, chips and non alcohol sangria for lunch. After lunch we had these adorable cupcakes. AND they gave me a new pair of TOMS. I was so happy I guess I will keep the birthday going for another month.

Wish. . .

I posted this picture on Facebook yesterday and a friend in Maine asked me why we made wishes on these? I googled it and I found out that the white seed were considered fairies and when you free them they are so happy they will grant your wish. I loved it and I wanted to post it here to share it with you.

San Diego fair

This morning Wyatt and I got up early, went to breakfast at the Potato Shack then headed to the fair for a student robotics exhibition. It is a fun day and a great way to show the community the robots. We did not see the fried kool-aid but we did see the deep fried corn on the cob. It amazes me all the gross, fried food. The worst smell was the bacon grease that was being cooked next to where the exhibit was.

I love this city, I mean really, really love this city! It is full of life and excitement. Someday I going to live here, and I won't need to drive everything is tight there within walking distance. Maybe I'll get a scooter. . . or maybe I shouldn't I might run someone over or fall and do major damage to myself. Hmmmm

My deck

I love this boy!

Wyatt has surprised me so much thru this entire broken collar bone thing. He is the kid that has (or so I thought) has zero tolerance for pain. Not once has he complained, not even when he actually broke his bone. He has been so amazing, sweating under the sling, sleeping and just the day to day routine. He must get his strength from my side o the family. Hahahaha
I love you sweet Wyatt!

Another Day . . .

Last night I added another notch in my "Worst Mother in the Universe" belt. I have a giant cut on the bottom of my foot, I took the band aid off and threw it at Wyatt, well he jumped and went back into the wall throwing his left shoulder up against the door jam. I felt so bad, it really hurt him. He needed some Motrin which he hasn't taken in two days. It was an innocent mistake right?
Today I have been trying to find songs for "Kindergarten Graduation" , finish up their photo books (yes, I keep adding to them) I will find a great quoter for a certain child or think of something else I want to say in their letter on the last page. It has sort of taken over my thoughts. They will have these books for the rest of their lives, I want them to remember me for ever, ever.
Do you have anything at the moment you are obsessing on?

Oceanside pier

Yesterday I took Wyatt to the end of the pier in Oceanside for a milkshake and a little pick me up. He is getting pretty depressed thinking about what he can't do with his broken collar bone. I am planning things that he would like to do to keep him busy. If I don't it will be a loong summer. If you have any suggestions let me know.

I am not expecting it to stay so wonderful but I am going to enjoy ever minute of this sunshine every morning when I wake up. I hope you are enjoying your sunshine or whatever weather you are having b

Happy June

Today is June 1st and the sun is shinning here today I am very surprised because we should be have the not so wonderful June Gloom. We didn't have much May Gray either, wow maybe this summer will end up being nice after all.
So my post a few days ago about the SURFING MADONNA was found and posted on her Facebook page. I was so surprised when I saw it linked up there for the world to see, I keep my little blog for my family and friends to read not everyone on FB, oh well.
I hope everyone has a wonderful June and the best summer, you know the kind you has when you were a kid, the ones when you didn't have a care in the world? You would leave your house on the morning on your bike, play all day with your friends an go home to eat when the sun went down? That is the kind of carefree summer I wish for you, I am going to try to have a summer like that and enjoy my son before he is gone off to college and is to busy for his old mom. Enjoy your days, weeks and summer!
