Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all my bloggie friends! 
I am still full from the fantastic homemade brunch of fruit crepes that my husband and two boys made for me!

I wanted to share a few pics of our Mother's Day project. The students really got into it and did a terrific job. 
I added a little binding to make it look a little more like a book.
 We went page by page to discuss ideas for drawing. I also drew some simple examples for the less confident but I was pleased how many students really used their own creativity.
I took a picture of each student about to eat the muffin for page 9 but this guy cracked me up by making this face instead!
Then we made the bags and I let them decide if they wanted googly eyes or not. This girl purposely made her mom's hair messy since she was in bed. :-)
I bought a variety of Costco muffins and let the students choose. One girl told me she picked a chocolate muffin because she knew her mom would split it with her. Now that is planning ahead!
The kids were so excited to bring them home on Friday. One sweetie confided that he just didn't know if he was going to be able to wait until Sunday to give it to his Mom!

In other news, I pick up my fixed computer tomorrow but alas, they were not able to get any data off. Thank you to all of you who offered to send me things. It turns out my blogging obsession has helped because l have copies in my Google Docs and Scribd accounts (at least the pdf.)

My job today is to try and make a movie for Open House on Tuesday. My husband thinks he can get the images off of blogger that I thought were lost so we'll see how that goes.

I am getting lots of hugs from my kids and I hope you are, too!
