Ahh….. back in my happy spot. I know you guys see me whine sometimes about how busy I am. If I knew WHAT I could cut out of my schedule I would but I honestly dont know where to start. Most everything I do is job related. Whether I am speaking or standing up for little guys and their rights in early education or training others or being trained myself. I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do. It is all worthy and each day I assume that I have world changers in my care and it is my job to prepare them for life. But sometimes, the things that fill my cup and drain me ( Is that possible ) is the work with the ones that are not so little. I left after work yesterday to run a few errands and high tailed it to Springdale to lead a training for providers on the new regulations.
These folks are my friends but sometimes it is so tough. Its hard to stand in front of friends and say ” Rules are rules.. have integrity and do them all the time , even when … especially when… no one is watching.” Its hard to explain how to advocate for yourself. Any way.. I got home at 10 pm. Other thoughts along the way were that rumor has it the new ABC coordinator is in town and might stop by . Oh.. and planning Arkansas Children’ Week. And… And… And….. So, my perfect and preferred place is right here doing what I love.
For small group today ( while I continued assessments ) the kids played a math game with carrots . They would roll the dice and pull that many carrots from the garden. There were also numerals written on the carrots to review.
We did a little science today too. What will happen to a PEEP if you put it in the microwave ?
