Watch-It Wednesday: Communication and More!

I wasn't even going to do a 'Watch-It Wednesday' today, just a "my-last-few-days-in-pictures" deal. But then we had to go and watch a funny video last night, and somehow it got tagged on to the end. ;) Anyway, pix first, then video...

Sunday, we celebrated one of our little friends' turning the prestigious age of five.

Tinkerbell cake!!

Isn't she a munchkin? :)

Girls that are way-too-cute for their own good.
And the goofy and purple tongues! :)
  Monday was the first day of school! You should of heard all the giggles and squeals that went on as mama laid out each child's supplies for the year - we are all quite excited (and I'm not even in school)!


I get to teach the Littles math, and am responsible for the writing/grammar portion of Gracie and James's learning. This is the first time I've had a defined roll in the schooling, and I'm so excited! :) Mama talks a bit about the curriculum we're using on her blog, but suffice to say, I really like the look of it (reading? how can one go wrong?)!

Tuesday marked the beginning of a church Bible Study in Genesis. Naturally, I've read the book several times, but it was so cool to sit down with members of our church family and read "In the beginning, God..." with the purpose of studying it! I am looking forward to going through this!

Then, of course, there was today (no? really?). I took the Little people to the store, having a few things to pick up, and I got stickers (!!! what about stickers doesn't make one happy?),

a happy (read: colorful) notepad - good for jotting down notes while giving lessons,

And then, as I was browsing the craft section, I suddenly saw... this fabulous notebook:

Isn't it adorable?? And something about the size, the solid, chunky feel when I picked it up...I couldn't resist. I mean, books in general - regardless of whether they are meant to be written in or read - have such endless possibilities, but this notebook is special. I can just feel it! Price, of course, is irrelevant when purchasing something with such a marvelous destiny. Now I just need to discover what it is. *clasps hands and gazes dreamily out into space*

Finally,  I'd like to leave you all with some communication advice. Jostie Flicks again - those guys always make me laugh!

A smiling, colorful, well-communicated Wednesday to you all!

Fun, fun, fun!

Are you jotting notes to yourself about the lesson while you're teaching?

The stickers, the girls, and the tongues are all adorable, I must say. ;-) (Not in that order, either.)

Jotting notes to myself. You know, "Pick up such-and-such a book for Sally," "Remember to quiz Johnny on such-and-such a point next week"...
The only problem? I keep forgetting to have the notepad in the lesson. :p
