Amanda's teacher asked me if I would be interested in being a class Mom. I said sure--but what is that? She explained that if we were going to have a party etc. and she needed help--I would help organize it, phone tree, etc.. I said sure. She also said the principal, Mrs. Perry is making the final class mom decisions and would let me know. Well--I received a phone call from the principal and she asked me officially if I wanted to be a class mom! I accepted! Very exciting stuff. That is until they actually ask me to do something---
Did I mention we found a caterpillar while ranking the leaves at Aunt Joanne's this past weekend. Stephanie gave us a little bug house to keep him in and made him a nice little house. I named him Fuzzy because the names Amanda came up with just didn't fit. Monday Amanda took him to school and I sent along the book the "Very Hungry Caterpillar." It was a big hit! Ms. Gravina even sent a note home thanking us for sharing our find and the book. Fuzzy is still alive and well even after a day of school and the park. He is feasting on broccoli, grapes, apple, etc. broccoli seemed to be his favorite so far. Mike is jealous (jokingly)--he said I am paying more attention to the caterpillar than him! I just want to make our new little house guest feel welcome!!! Photos to come..........
This time Abbey was awake and cooperating! Cousin Stephanie came with us to the Apple Bin in New Paltz. Hayride and all.......... Thank you F (stephanie) for climbing up some of the trees to get me my golden delicious with a hint of pink/red on them. Those were high up there! I truly appreciate it. Yummy apples.
