We are up to 46 nationalities at our school. Many of the kids at our school have never even heard of Easter. We use this opportunity to do some of the fun stuff kids do on Easter, like dying eggs. Also, we give each student the opportunity to hear what really happened on the first Easter morning. It's a very special time in the year for us. I was asked by Perma-Baby's teacher to come help the Pre Kindergarten class dye Easter eggs. What fun to watch these little noses smell the vinegar, little eyes choose the color they wanted, then little hands lower the egg into the solution. All I can say is that it's a good thing CC doesn't have me teaching them, I think I'd squeeze them all to death!
Big Ben got to go with me. His priorities were clear. He first sat and ate his breakfast. You know, it's amazing what you discover with a 5th kid. They really can wait until 9am to eat, and they really can eat breakfast in a school classroom. He didn't starve.
It was "Dress Down Day" which means the kids can wear non-dress code clothes. We always specify that the clothes must be "modest" and "in good taste." When I saw PB come down with her antennae on, I felt the "good taste" memo must not have reached her.
This little guy is from Africa. He loves PB. He tells her every day that he loves her. I think I love him.
