Hump Day Catch-Up

A while back I wrote about a particular student in my class this year, Little H, who pulled at my heart strings. She does that every day, while at the same time consistently driving me crazy. One minute she's a tiny genius, and then next minute I'm writing her name down on the behavior chart for disrupting/talking/yelling/out of her seat. But this one takes the cake. A couple weeks back in art class, the teacher was discussing circles, and what you could make with circles. So she has all the students trace a circle on their paper and then make something out of it. Most of the kids made scarecrows or something Halloween related given the time of year. Cute, huh? Then there's little H. Now when you look at this picture, keep in mind that I had just showed the kids pictures of my puppy and they were all excited that their teacher had a new pup. So all their journal entries were about my puppy, and apparently Little H wanted to draw her too. So here ya go.....




Did you catch the poop? My puppy is pooping the picture. How funny is that??? Here's a close up in case you missed it the first time.....





When I picked the kids up from art class, the teacher pointed this one out to me. She asked me if I think we should call home about the picture. I told her no, I had a pretty good idea where the idea came from. Little H had asked me (all the kids got to ask me one question about the pup) if she poops like a person does. Obviously, she doesn't have a dog at home. So I answered that yes, dogs poop like people do, just outside. Of course that brought the house down....imagine your first/second grade teacher saying the word poop. Anyway, this child has yet again stolen my heart. Because, whether the picture is inappropriate or not, it's darn cute.


I talked to the lady at the church we are going to be married in. I will know Friday the actual date of our wedding. I'll go into LOTS of detail about her, but later. I don't want to jinx it. Let's just say it's not easy dealing with that church AT ALL. But we WILL be married there, for sure. Other than that, I haven't started planning much yet except the bridesmaid dresses. I think those have been picked out for a while, way before we were engaged. You know how a girl dreams....I guess I should really get moving because we're getting married in about 6 months. Yikes!! Even though it's been over 2 weeks since Kenny proposed, I'm still in shock. I keep looking at my hand and thinking, "Oh my gosh I'm engaged!!!" And every day I come home and say, "Hi Fiance!!" to Kenny. I love this feeling, and I'm actually very excited to plan all the artsy stuff for the wedding. I just LOVE to make stuff, as if you couldn't already tell!!


Back to the puppy for a minute...she is getting bigger EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! She's huge!! We already had to buy a bigger collar for her. I can barely pick her up and carry her without hurting myself. She's a mini-cow now!! But I just love her so much. Here she is lounging in the bed while I get ready for work. She's not really allowed up there, only if I invite her, and she won't jump up there on her own. She knows I'm about to leave for work so she's trying her hardest to look cute so I'll stay home with her. Wish I could!
