I found some treasures.

4 years ago
Do you ever start cleaning your house and make all kinds of discoveries in the process?  You never knew your home was so filled with forgotten treasures.  I'm not talking about money or fancy jewels, you guys.  I'm talking about sentimental items.  I know, I know, I sound like a total corn dog already.  You should stick around for these though, because they might make you laugh.  Or they won't.  
 
First I should preface this by mentioning that I am a teacher.  During my student teaching in 2012, I taught kindergarten.  It was the most fun I've ever had, and ending that internship was one of the saddest days of my life.  As much as I hate crying in front of anyone, I totally cried all over that school that day.  In the midst of my crying, I probably scared a couple of children and maybe some adults too.  
 
My mentor teacher put together an awesome book full of letters and pictures from the kids and surprised me with it on my last day.  Today, I saw that book in my home office and decided to read through it again.  Here are two of my favorites from the book:
 

This picture:

 
 

I can say a couple of things about this picture

First of all, I love how this child drew a huge blue area, which I am guessing is the ceiling or the sky, and then he drew an orange box underneath of it that says orange with an arrow pointing to the blue area.  I'm guessing he would like to change the color of the sky.  Perhaps I am teaching a lesson in the sunset? 

Secondly, I am guessing that is the student sitting in the chair and that is me standing up and teaching.  Is it just me, or do I appear very sassy in that picture?  I mean, look at my posture.  If I'm that sassy, I need to cool it.  That's just too much sass.

This letter:

Okay, I can explain.  They were gummy worms.  I didn't make them measure live worms and then eat them afterward. 

I also stumbled upon this letter my little sister wrote me in my first year of college:

You've got to love how she started out writing a nice little letter and finished it off with, "Don't forget my birthday is coming up."  Nice move, kid.

I'm sure I'll share more random items that I stumble across in the future, but this will do for today.
