Open House 2010

We all five went to The King’s Academy for Open House Saturday night.  It was a lot of fun, in a very busy kind of way.  Mack was horrible from the beginning.  He fell asleep in the car and drooled vanilla wafer all over his clean shirt.  This is what he looked like when we got there:

I probably don’t need to tell you that he did not do well the entire time!  No doubt he would have stayed at the grandparents house just up the road, if indeed we had grandparents up the road, which we do not.  Moving on.

We went by Mrs. Honaker’s classroom first since it was on the way.  She picked right up with Ruby where they left off…lots of hugs.

While she did hug Molly, I appreciated that she also took more gentle measures with her.  She recognized that Molly was a bit reserved.  I am sure Molly will get more and more comfortable with Mrs. Honaker as the year goes by.

Molly did a scavenger hunt around the room and made a cute visor on which she put her name.  She liked being in the room and didn’t want to leave.  They iced a cookie and decorated it, too!

This is Ruby in her 1st grade class, also decorating a cookie!  She did a scavenger hunt around the room, too, to get familiar with where things are.  She seemed much more grown up and enjoyed seeing some of her friends from last year.  I won’t lie—this is the only picture I got of her because by this time Mack truly was being the devil.  He would grab a handful of M&Ms or a big juicy sugar thing every time he walked by the candy bin…and there were more kids that had to use that stuff!!  He is such a stinker.  I don’t know if he was just exhausted or if he knew that none of what we were doing had to do with him, but I am so very glad we let Molly pick Papa John’s take-out pizza instead of going in and sitting down at Waffle House.  I couldn’t have stood it.

So, there you have it.  We are getting closer and closer to our first day of school for the year.  I am nervous and have thought of a few things I need to do to get prepared.  I thought I was ready, but I am not.  Stay tuned for more pictures on Tuesday!!

  1. *sniff* *sniff* I TOO feel your pain about terrible, little boys! Jud has been a handful to say the least!!

    anyway, what a GREAT school ya’ll have…i’m jealous! wish we had something like that. Mrs. Honaker looks like a sweet teacher. kind of reminds me of Mrs. Richardson. 🙂 So glad Open House went well…for the most part. can’t wait to see more pics! LOVE YOU ALL!!

  2. I can’t believe that gun/Bible toting daddy morphed into the devil in the span of one blog post! I wish you could have left him with me…we would have had tons of sugar that we didn’t have to share with anyone else!!!

  3. What a great way for the girls to get to know their classrooms with the scavenger hunt. They have very creative teachers. Next time bring Mack to me…so what if its a long drive. I have lots of boys and cookies.
