Trent's open house for junior high was the other night. Here he is with his social studies teacher. She just finished up chemo so was out for some time...she is a favorite of the kids! This is Trent's homeroom teacher...she teaches English. He was intimidated by her at first, but has ended up really liking her!
This is Trent's science and algebra teacher. He is an awesome math teacher. He's even written books about algebra. It's his passion. Trent has enjoyed all 3 of his teachers this year so much. So nice to not have one that you dread....so he has been so fortunate this year.
The first graders put on a Mother's Tea every year in their classroom. It is SO special. They bring out a rose and escort their mom back into the classroom. Then they show them the book they made about you....then they all line up and sing several songs. SO sweet. After one of the songs, they tell the one thing they would change in this world if they could....most kids say something like "My mom would never have to do laundry again" or some such thing...Byron said "If I could change one thing in this world for my mom, there would be no more rats!" ha! Loved it! (Yes, we do enjoy the company of rats...big ones, bigger ones and realllly big ones in our garage from time to time). It was so cute. Then of course for the book, they write all these sweet things about you and how you are so beautiful, best mom, etc. etc....but again, my favorite is the one that was out of the box....his last description of me was :My mom buys donuts not often. Too true! Bringing out the roses to the moms.
Jared had Pioneer Day this week. I helped teach the kiddos embroidery. Was fun..but didn't get many pictures! They had several stations they went to.
