My kids go to the same school where I work. I love it. I know what's going on, I don't miss out on all the little events, and I get to see them as much (or as little!) as I want.
One of my favorite things is unexpectedly running into Evan in the hall. I get a big hug, and it just makes my day.
I am very excited to be able to be with Hudson for the Pre-K Thanksgiving Cultural Feast today. It just so happens that Fr. Robert is going to be teaching my class at the very time I need to go to the party. Perfect!
Yesterday, I asked Hudson's teacher what to expect. She asked if I read the note that got sent home. Um, no. She said to bring Hudson's favorite cultural food.
Sure. Noodles or candy. Hard to choose.
I figured I'd make cupcakes or something fabulous.
Something fabulous turned into cutting Costco muffins into fourths this morning. Who doesn't love a culturally acceptable chocolate or blueberry muffin from Costco? It's a family staple...sort of...when we think about. Okay, it's not.
Here they are all wrapped up pretty. Plus, I saved one for myself for morning snack!
Blueberry and chocolate muffins...an ethnic favorite!
