A very FULL First Few Weeks!

Wow!  What a BUSY first few weeks!
I have felt like I was barely treading water.

I am starting to get my rhythm back though.
So I thought I would share what we have been up to.

We started the first few days off with lots of team building.
We did Saving Fred, a favorite of mine.
The kids love it too!

We also played "Cooties" with a Classmate Quizzer

This year I tried a new activity that I had seen on Pinterest 
Spaghetti Races!

I used Chinet plates and generic spaghetti, but no tape.
It was WAY harder that it looked!
They had a LOT of fun, but no one got very far!

We also did the Back-To-School Poster Activity that I did last year.

No surprises this year in their responses, but it was fun to read their comments.

Oh, Snap! 
Technical difficulties.
My computer is not reading my SD card!
I will have to come back later to finish the updates.
Until then...
