We DID it!

Despite the fact that Tyler was sick with food poisoning 24 hours prior to the race, and I haven't run as far as the mailbox and back in the last 4 years we ran the Bolder Boulder today and it was a total blast! ( I can't feel my legs, and I may not be able to get out of bed tomorrow, but hey, it was totally worth it!) JoEllen, Clarke, Tyler, Skip and I all started together and met up at the Folsom Stadium in CU! Congrats Skip for your big Victory....(He won out of our group and Clarke promised him text messaging if he could beat him.... Yippie Skippy!)

GhostBuster Skit

GhostBusters Skit.... oh the joys of being a teacher/drummer

Kindergarten Graduation

Kindergarten Graduation

I was lucky enough to MC the went great...I only wanted to turn around and smack the kids on the front row four times
(clearly they weren't as quiet as my classes who were sitting in the back row)

These are the other two Kindergarten Teachers
Miss Allison...isn't she adorable! She made me feel like Mrs. America with these pretty flowers.
This is little Andrew. He is such a cutie...

(His name is andrew...he wears cowboy boots every day to school, and he's holding his diploma upside down) so cute I'm going to miss sweet Austin

Oh if your wondering why my hair is all crimped out!!! Please see the video clip below featuring the talent show act that I was apart of that same day. I had to go all out for my 80's drummer bit.

Sorry to post about Kindergarten again!!! But it's been my life for the past year...and I've LOVED IT. A few days ago we had our graduation...and I am glad it is all over. The past year has flown by....Thanks Queen and Andrew for surviving graduation and for all your help and support this year.

The Circus

So on Friday we turned our Kindergarten classrooms into the Circus. All of our kids came with acts to perform for eachother. We had magicians, dancing Zebras, ballerinas, stuffed animals flying through hoops, Cheetah tamers, and fire fighters. :) I love being a Kindergarten teacher. The only downfall is that I have completely lost my voice!! Woops, hopefully it comes back soon, so my Kindergartners can hear me on Monday. Lots of love. Jo

Oh and Andrew came up with the great idea to wear his jeans and basketball shoes! Wow did I ever feel like a real clown.
