  • You can probably guess that my New Year's resolution wasn't to blog more often.
  • However, I am going to liven it up a bit. In February, I'm going to post a picture every day. Also, I got a new sewing calendar with over 100 cool sewing projects, and I would like to do a few give aways this year.
  • Things have been pretty normal around her. We had a great Christmas. School is rolling along pretty smoothly. My baby is not a baby anymore but a little girl who talks and bosses her brothers around.
  • Today, Moonlight Sonata came on, and I asked the boys if they knew who wrote it. Without missing a beat Elijah said "Beethoven". I guess he is learning something from the classical music book I bought for the Leap Pad. Actually, I even learned a lot from that book!
  • Teaching Sammy to read has been incredibly easy. He just gets it.
  • I'm going to be teaching 3rd-5th grade gym this spring for Enrichment Day. If anybody has any cool suggestions for games or activities for that age group, I would love to hear them.
  • For any Pride & Prejudice fans, I have to recommend Pamela Aiden's Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy. They were so good! Thank you to Melissa for recommending them to me.

Do you happen to have access to a parachute? Playing with the parachute was my favorite PE activity when I was that age. Kickball is always fun too. Maybe an ice skating or bowling field trip? We also did swim lessons in 4th grade PE.

And I will check out the Darcy books, thanks for the suggestion!

ohh, I just realized your gym teaching days may only be ONE day. So some of my suggestions probably aren't good.

Thanks for the suggestions, I was thinking about the parachute thing too. I will actually be teaching 6 classes (twice a month for 3 months).

I loved the parachute too... But the one game I always loved was dodge ball..although some parents don't exactly like that game! lol

Hi Amie! Parents might not like Dodgeball, but kids sure do!!! And if you use a rubber ball and be strict with the below-the-knees aiming, then all "should" be well! Kids seem also to love obstacle courses, and you don't always need alot of resources for these. Or Treasure Hunts that require physical challenges - that was my favourite :)
