Super, Sleepy Saturday

Alright, so I know I've been absent the last few days.  We had Fall Festival yesterday and since I'm on PTO Board I was helping with finishing a lot of little, last minute things.  I felt it this morning.  I felt like I ran a marathon yesterday when I woke up this morning.  I hurt from the top of my head to the tip of my toes.  It was worth every second, but who knew collecting tickets, passing out candy, making posters, etc. could be like going to the gym?

So, I ended up resting most of the day.  Now that the weather has cooled down a little, it feels good to go to breakfast and grocery shopping with my hubby and come home and take a nap.  Plus, I LOVE watching college football.  I don't even care who is playing.  I just like to watch :)

Now, I'm trying to find my focus mode.  Isn't it crazy that I had two days off last week and I already feel behind again?  I will never understand how that happens.  Anyway, just wanted to touch base.  By the way, here is a picture of one thing I did with my kids last week.

Disclaimer:  This is a little gross, but I scored big points with my kids!!!
























Every year I read poems from the book "Giant Children".  My favorite poem to read is called, "Booger Love".  It's gross, but in a funny way.  It definitely relates to first graders and it is amazing how well they listen.  Thankfully, I've read it for the last 6 or 7 years and I've never had any complaints.  Only lots of laughter!  Now, a few years ago, I discovered that at Halloween time they make a Box of Boogers.  It goes perfect with the poem, so I bring them in after I read the poem.  They are just fruity, gummy candy, but the kids get a kick out of being able to go home and tell their parents about eating boogers at school.  It's always funny because at first half the kids won't eat them.  Once I eat one and some of the other kids eat them, the majority of the kids will try one out.  It also never fails that one of the kids wants to take the box home to gross out their parents, so I usually pick a kid that I know the parents will have a great sense of humor.

Anyway, if you are interested in the book you can click on the link.  As for the Box of Boogers, you can get them at Target for a $1.

I will hopefully have a freebie for you tomorrow!
