Lunch with the Grandparents - When they live far away

The kids and I had a lunch date the other day. When I asked where they wanted to go, they said Souplantation.  I asked why they were so excited about the place. My little one said because it is the place where grandma and grandpa took us to lunch when they came to visit. It was great to hear that although the grandparents live far away that my kids hold them close to their hearts.

As we walked through the line I pushed the veggies. Making this a great moment for getting some green veggies in their bodies(they hate them). I pushed the salads and the fruit. I was so grateful in that moment that the Grandparents loved salads. Because my kids had seen their grandparents eat healthy they felt they too had to eat healthy, while at Souplantation. We all loaded our plates and sat down to eat. Salad, pasta, soups and lemonade to drink was on our table. We talked about the last time we came with grandma and grandpa and what fun we had eating.  It was great to know that memories are made sharing a meal.

That day I realized that small moments can make big impacts. Today we will be going to Souplantation to make another memory. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for making Souplantation one of our favorite places to eat. Miss you and we all love you very much!!

State Testing and a letter of encouragement

State Testing CCSS SBAC is starting next week for our area.  This semester, my son's fourth grade teacher has asked that I write him a letter of encouragement.  She gave us a few weeks notice. I have, in the past few days, written a few handwritten notes of encouragement. Then, I would wake up the next day realizing that it was not loving enough and second guessing myself. This task has been a little hard for me.  Then, the final email reminder came from the teacher. It read as follow: "This is just a friendly reminder to please send a letter of encouragement to your student to be opened this coming Monday, May 1. Students will be given the letters prior to taking their first test."  Oh my goodness, I have to get it done!!! So, I put on my big girl pants and re-wrote the letter for the 5th time. This time, I made it classroom friendly and left out lots of the I love you's and all the mushy stuff I had written before. The letter went something like this:  Dea

How to make a California Mission Model.

Learn how to make a California Mission Model at home or in the classroom. We made this project as part of the California Public School Fourth grade requirement in a group setting. Continue to read on to get the supply list and instructions for a successful mission model. On an ordinary day, I was reminded how amazing kids really are when there are no limits. Just as equally amazing are the teachers who guide them and teach them everyday.  I am very thankful for the opportunity that I was given as a parent volunteer.  The day was like a beautiful dance where parents, teachers and students came together for a common goal. The goal was to make models of California Missions from a simple picture and lots of cardboard.  I can honestly say the goal was reached and everyone deserved an "A".
