Happy Friday Everyone! Guess what today is??? THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!! YAHOO!!! So excited for summer. And our weather is set to become summer-like starting on Sunday. I'm linking up for 5 for Friday to share 5 happenings this week. Thanks to Kacey from Doodlebugs Teaching for hosting!
My little man graduated from Pre-K on Saturday. He started the school year in the Bahamas in a fabulous Montessori class. Here he is this past September... Note the tan and blond hair.
Here he is on Saturday. First pic is him with his two teachers. Two very patient women who integrated a little boy in January from a Montessori environment to a preschool environment and from a different country back into his home country.
Here's the happy graduate...
Remember last week when I told you about my favorite reading blog The Modern Mrs. Darcy? Then I mentioned that she has a podcast called "What Should I Read Next?" I started listening to the podcast in the car on the way to school and on the way home from school. I even make my kids listen to it. I just LOVE the format. She talks with guests and each guest has to share 3 books they love, one they hate, and what they are currently reading. Based on their reading lives she then recommends 3 books and asks them what are they going to read next. My list of holds at the library grew exponentially this week!!! So what am I reading right now? Two books... one parenting/professional and one fun one...
My parenting/professional book: No Drama Discipline by Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson
I can't say enough good things about this book. This book has dramatically changed the way I interact with my kids at home and at school. I'm excited to put it into practice in a classroom in the Fall.
And for my fun read: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
Basically there's a birthday party being held somewhere in South America for a Japanese businessman. He didn't want to come. They lured him there by inviting his favorite soprano. The party is being held at the Vice President's house. The President was supposed to attend but decided not to at the last moment. He stays home to watch his beloved soap opera. The guests at the party are taken hostage and as you can imagine, things get interesting from there. That's all I'm going to say at the moment. I'm only about 25% of the way into the book and I am hooked!
What are you reading right now?? Hope it's something great!
