Sawyer is 4 Months Old!

Sawyer is such a happy little man! Here he was playing on the floor just rolling and scooting around while I surfed the net. Every once in awhile I would snap a picture because I was so impressed by his ability to entertain himself and get around. How can you look at these pictures without smiling? Try it, I dare you can't.

I am trying my best not to worry but I just hate dropping Sawyer off at daycare. Then I have to work at my stupid job all day while someone else who doesn't even love him gets his best hours. When I picked him up today after his first full day he seemed just fine. I picked him up off of the play gym he was playing with and stood chatting with the nursery "teacher." What does Sawyer do? He busts out giggling... more than once even. He thinks his "teacher" is hilarious. Who knew?

Flood Update

I have been meaning to get back to this for awhile to update you on the flooding situation and my classroom. A few weeks ago...yes, I said a few weeks ago.... I spent some time surveying the damage, sifting through some boxes and visiting the barren classroom. The best news I have to share is that the two goldfish have survived. They are like cats...although I am not sure how many lives they have to go yet. Probably not many considering we bought (rescued) them from the feeder tank at Petland. Goofy and Duck are have been through it all.

Here is the picture showing everything pulled from the classroom aside from the refridgerator and the fish tank shown above. The fish get a special location so the district staff can keep them plugged in!

Here is the bare classroom. I will be starting the year in an alternate location in the same building as the other Bridges classroom. In the end it will be nice to have everything all clean and new but I sure have a lot of anxiety right now about how the year will start off!
