It's almost been a week since I posted - time sure passes quickly! Evie and Henry had a terrific first week at school. Both of them adore their teachers and are having fun learning new things. My first week back went well too - it's the best teaching job ever because it is only 5 hours per week. My students are bright and full of personality. It feels terrific to be back in the classroom.
We went to the library, the farmer's market, the Parthenon and played outside a ton. It was such a nice weekend.
Some friends had us over for brunch this morning - that was fun and delicious. Not much better than a mimosa and bananas foster for dessert.
Evie has been working hard to fill up her kindness jar. It has taken about a month of kind deeds but she finally made it. She selected a new baby doll as her reward and has already started filling up another jar. It works like a charm - time out does not do a thing at my house and I have found that spanking just creates more physical interaction between Henry and Evie. The kindness jar is just her ticket - positive reinforcement works best!
Hope you had a great weekend!
