I am so sorry tea, but that Southern Pecan coffee is insanely delicious and I needed a major jolt this morning.
Today is the final day of classes on the Migration and Life Cycle of the Monarch Butterfly as well as the Fall Festival at school. We had the fourth graders yesterday and they were fun. Those questions though. How long does it live ( 4-6 weeks) How do you know if it’s a boy or girl? (Spots) Does it poop? At that one my little friend by the pencil popped out a nugget and of course all the boys wanted to touch the poo. The only thing left in the hatchery is a chrysalis and a new butterfly and 2 caterpillars. One Monarch and one Swallowtail. They will all be released today.
The kids wrote about the life cycle and then made terrariums. Tommy showed up right before school let out and we planted some herbs and stuff in the salad garden. Each grade has a raised patch to tend. They graph the progress and learn a lot of lessons in the garden.
So it turns out my ‘new’ normal, is really my old profession. Teaching. But this time on a volunteer basis. I’m loving it. Kids are in my comfort zone and I get to see my boy at school. Yesterday while waiting on pick up he was snuggled up with some blonde floozy until PaPa saw him. Then he proceeded to tell all his friends that I was making him a Jurassic World cake for Saturday. I did not know this.
On a weird note…I received a friend request on IG from a real live Saudi Prince! Verified. I told him I don’t talk to men on the internet so he suggested Hangouts so we could plan our future life together. Is it bad that I thought about it for like 5 seconds? Then I blocked him.
Have a great Friday and look for the last of the Monarchs headed south!
