Everyone is back to school as of this week!! I love the first days back. I even secretly like all the hokey ice breakers because they are usually pretty fun and you get to learn about the other teachers. This year one of our ice breakers was to make a hand and decorate it. We found the idea on pinterest. We made this cute wreath out of all the hands to let everyone know that we all have a hand in learning. Our goal next week is to have the kids make their own hands to add to the wall. I think it will be really cute! I can’t wait to see all the hands on the wall!!
I’ve heard that the toe shoes are supposed to be really good for your feet if you are a runner. I think they are the funniest looking shoe around. They had some at Marshall’s so I decided to try some on. They are pretty comfortable, so I went ahead and bought them. I exercise so early that no one will ever see them if I decide I like them.
The best part of getting them was when my two year old nephew saw them on my feet. He pointed and just started laughing. It was so funny. It made buying them worthwhile. He made me take them off and when I sat on the couch he came from behind and threw them over and shouted, “ta da!!!” I tried to put them on his feet but he wanted nothing to do with them! It was all pretty amusing and I’m glad I bought them.
