Gonna keep it short and sweet tonight because I am TIRED!!! This morning I hit the snooze on my alarm and fell back asleep for AN HOUR. As in sixty minutes. Yowzers. Can you say sleep deprived??!!
I am so completely exhausted that I don't even think I will be able to keep my eyes open and watch the Biggest Loser Finale . . .gasp! PLEASE don't go blogging about how great the winner looked, etc., etc. No spoilers people!!
Anyway, in Room 17 we have been working hard getting ready for Mother's Day. Today my kidlets were using thier graphic organizers and writing sentences about why they love their mom. Here are some of the finished products . . .
"I love my mom because she goes to work." (Tear.)
This one was super cute. Last sentence = "My mom helps in the computer lab." (Gotta love those helper moms!)
This kiddo had some exceptionally great responses . . . Mom likes to wear - princess outfits. (Classic!) I wish Mom - could do a headstand. (Don't we all wish that?)

Well, that's it for now folks! I am off to bed! Tomorrow my little kinder kidlets are singing at the Spring Music Show and will be performing a song called "Soap and Water" to the tune of Beyonce's "Single Ladies". No, I did not invent it, and yes, it is just as amazing as it sounds. More to come later this week . . .
