my kids

so i was selected by my principal to attend gifted/talented meetings where we learn how to teach our gifted/talented students in 1st grade. I had to leave today at 11:30 to go to the meeting. I enjoy going because they are interesting and of course, I get to leave school early and actually talk to adults, not 6 year olds! However, I got a little sad when I was driving to the meeting. Today they were learning a new things in Grammar and Writing and I wasn't going to be there to teach it to them! Would the sub do a good job? Would they understand? I know you think I'm crazy but those kids have become my babies and I want to teach them new material! Yes, I will be there tomorrow to review what they learned today, but I was all worried about them today because I wasn't there. I don't know what has come over me but basically, I love being there and I love teaching them! I have become a bit protective of them and even though I know the sub was probably great, I still worried. The whole time I was at the meeting I wondered what they were doing.....Would they go home on the right bus? Would they remember to put their textbook in their backpack? Would they miss me? Were they being good for the sub? What did they eat for snack? hahaa ohhhh how my life has changed.....

for the better! :)

I am cooking hamburger steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans for Ty tonight :) Wish me luck! He has always been the cook but I have started lately. I love cooking for him! I just need to learn how to cook some good things! Would anyone like to share thier favorite recipe?


  1. you are such a dork, remember you're 22 not 42 :)

  2. Of course they missed you! And I love hearing about what a big girl you're becoming. I'd share my recipes with you princess, but they are a little more difficult then Mac & Cheese, so we're just going to have to wait till I'm home so I can show you a few times :) I love you & Miss you

  3. That's so sweet Kat, when you care about your kids that much it means you're a great teacher!

    I have tons of good, easy recipes...I need to e-mail them to you. When I first started cooking after we got married I made anything and everything that mom made, that's a good place to start. You should make mom's meatloaf and chili for Ty, those are 2 of Ryan's favorites and they are easy to make, especially the meatloaf.
