Dairy Queen

Last Friday was a beautiful sunny, mildy warm day. I needed to get my classroom ready for the achievement test and didn't want to tackle it by myself. It's easier to hang paper over all the posters and charts and things if I have help. So I asked one of my 4th graders if she wanted to stay and help me. Of course she wanted to, and we asked her mom at dismissal.

This girl is so sweet. She helped me for about 45 minutes and then I asked if she wanted to go to Dairy Queen. She was so excited! So we called her mom to make sure and then we went. We sat and talked and then i took her back home. It was fun, and the whole time I kept thinking..soon I will have a daughter.
