Today was our annual field trip to the zoo. It is always a stressful time for me prepping to go on a trip like this. This year I simplified my to do list and let it just come together. But, wouldn't you know I ended up one chaperone down (kinder with a fever). So...best laid plans had to be tweaked and retweaked last minute. I ended up with a group of kiddos (not a big deal, but I felt less "at the ready" to fix emergencies, misbehaviors for chaperones, etc.). And of course I took Mr. ADHD, Mr. OuterSpace, and Mr. Oppositional Defiant so that the chaperones could have a better day. Me? Let's just say I'm in recovery with my pretty little glass of Syrah. The good news...it's done and all had a good time...no emergencies or anything!
So our last day of school is Monday...two and a half days to go. After we got back from the zoo today, we read two Miss Bindergarten books: Miss Bindergarten Takes a Field Trip with Kindergarten and Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the Last Day of Kindergarten. The kids enjoyed both (of course). So I decided to mimic the teacher gift and award pictured at the end of the last book. I will send home a penny and a kiss (hershey's) for each graduating kinder on Monday along with a celebratory certificate.
