P is for Pumpkin

I survived my week as "teacher." But it seriously wiped me out! I learned a lot though, so hopefully it's easier next time around, which (fortunately) won't be until January. (One of the mother's is expecting twins in the spring and so she took my November week and I am teaching her week in March). I don't have pictures of the actual preschool class, as I was too stressed out to think of that. But the kids all had a good time learning about leaves and the letter L (on Tuesday), squirrels and the number zero (on Wednesday), and pumpkins and the letter P (on Thursday).
On pumpkin day, I used a pumpkin as a punch bowl at snack time. That night I had Mark carve it for our front porch. Millie has loving named our jack-o'-lantern Linda. So if you're in town, make sure to drive by our house between the hours of 7 and 10 p.m. to see Linda in action.

I love "Linda" we stopped by Sat. to give Millie her invite and Olivia saw your pumpkin and insisted we go straight home and carve ours. She was not happy when I told her she had to wait. :)

I'm glad you made it through preschool. My turn is coming up in November; wish me luck!

Linda is a great pumpkin! It is wonderful that Millie is so creative with names.

Diane said...

Oh good! I'm glad you survived. Is there significance to the name Linda?

Tamber said...

No. The name Linda is not significant. When she names something it is usually Lisa or Linda. She must like 'L' names.

P.S. One year I made a turkey for Thanksgiving and named it Valoy. Turns out if you name it it's harder to eat it when the time rolls around, so I hope you weren't planning on pumpkin pie from Linda.
