Well, the holidays are over. I always have trouble with this time of year, when it's no longer Christmas time, it's just winter (by far my least favorite season). All my decorations have to come down, and the house just looks kinda sad.
Not to mention we don't get another paid holiday until May. Ugh.
I taught my first Sunbeam class yesterday. For some reason I hadn't realized that for the sunbeams, this would be their first day in primary. So, almost like a first day of school.
It started off with one of the kids in my class not wanting to sit with us, and wanting to sit with his brother instead. Then some parents brought in another kid, who looked at me and then started to cry uncontrollably. I felt like saying, "Kid, I feel the same way!".
But once we got in our class room, minus a few temper tantrums it wasn't that bad. I attempted to teach my lesson, but don't think it was too much of a success. I would have had more participation from a group of deaf mutes. However, these kids are 3 after all. What did I expect? We sang, danced, played duck duck goose and still had tons of time left. I'll have to tweak my teaching method for next week. I'm used to teaching older kids who actually understand what I'm saying to them.
After a week of non stop reading I finished the Twilight series. I feel sad that I'm done with them, but am relieved at the same time. The only other books like this that I've read are the Harry Potter books, and I kept up with those as they came out. So I wasn't faced with desperately trying to read 7 of them asap.
So back to real life and out of the world of hot vampires with hearts of gold I go.
Waiting for James to arrive!
