Life Is Just So Daily

November....or at least parts of it.

Well, my laptop crapped out. Got a virus. Got something. It would only operate in 'safe-mode.' So, I had to get the photos off there & then have it wiped clean. But, ladies & gentlemen: I'm back.

I've got sooooo much to catch up on!!!!

Let's start with this:

Now, I believe that this might be photo evidence of the difference between boys & girls....but then again, I have no daughter to compare to, so perhaps it is not. Just look at the state of those papers! Is it sooooo hard to just put them in your folder On the whole, Gage puts his papers in his folder, but at least once a week papers just get shoved in the backpack & come home all crumpled like that.
{Now, Gagie, if that's the worst thing you ever bring home from school, you're golden!}

What else???
Oh! I have to show you my little pilgrim!!!!!
The Kindergarteners at Gage's school had a little Thanksgiving Program for us parents. So cute.

Daddy & I both got to attend, but then we had to go to work...hence the scrubs.

They also had college week at Gage's school with a different theme every day....
What do you want to be when you grow up? {This actually put Gage into a panic...he's not sure what he wants to be. He felt a lot of pressure to pick something & get it right...and bless his little heart, he just wasn't sure. I had to assure him that here in Kindergarten he was not actually choosing his life's profession; he could pick something & then not grow up to be that & it would be okay.}
So again, what do you want to be when you grow up: "An Army Dude."

On another day, you wear green & jeans because going to college puts more "green" in your jeans!

And then, you get to pick a college or university & wear a hat for that school and then wear a shirt for that college or university. Gage asked about the different schools that Mommy & Daddy went to, and ultimately he chose SMU {daddy, are you so proud!?}.

Hat day...

Shirt day.... (and yes, he had to wear the hat again...)

{And a big ol' Texas-sized "Thank ya" to Professor W for pickin' those up for us! (and if you could read the above sentence with a hearty Southern accent, that would be great.)}

Outside of Gage's classroom, I always love to see his work.
Imagine my surprise when I read about myself on his "I am thankful..." assignment.

Now, when I first read it, I thought I read, "she is thankful for AIDS."
I thought, "WHAT THE F***????"
Um....yeah, let's take a closer look:

"Ads." As in, "coupons."
If you really know me, this is HILARIOUS.

Also in November, Gage got to be the "Star Student" for the week. He was sooo looking forward to it, because when you are the star student, you also get to be the teacher's helper for a week. Guess what Gage learned: being the helper sucks! Teachers do a lot of hard work & he's officially excluded that as a future career. He also now knows exactly which of his classmates pick up after themselves & which ones do not. The only highlight of being the helper: you get to use the pencil sharpener.

Gage's Star Student Poster {and yes, being the 'Proud Momma,' I am going to show it whole & then all the various parts... He only gets to be the star student in Kindergarten ONCE!}

So, my next post will be about Thanksgiving. With that, I will leave you with Gage's drawing of a turkey:
