We had a death in the aquarium today. Mr. Kippling was one of Cade’s fantail goldfish. He had been sick and going downhill for a few days now. I wasn’t 100% sure what was wrong with him. We did a few things that were suggested online. But we probably caught whatever it was to late. I know it was just a fish but I was so upset over the whole thing. I think Cade took it better than I did. I was stressed about it all weekend.
How do you handle it when one of your pets die? Maybe I’m just to much of a softie.
I could stand it no longer! I sent that boy into his room and told him not to come out until it was clean. This is what I found when I peaked in on him. I almost sent out a rescue party but figured he was ok since I could still see his legs. He survived and now has a clean room. Whew! I feel much better.
Today we showed our appreciation for the teachers at my son’s school.
Lunch was brought in for them to enjoy.
Lunch and recess duties were covered by parent volunteers.
It’s always an interesting time on the playground when the parents are on duty.
Every five minutes someone wants to go to the office for a band-aid or an ice pack.
Feelings that have been hurt by a classmate need to be repaired with kind words.
It gives us an idea of what the teachers deal with every day.
So for this and many other reasons we THANK YOU teachers!
This is what Cade gave his teacher today. Just a plain flower-pot that I painted with black chalkboard paint.
Then we added an impatient. Nothing extravagant but I hope she likes it.
Do you do anything for teacher appreciation day/week?
