career week

i love second grade! i love the endless possibilities of who you are and what you will become. at this age anything is possible! you are still interested in becoming a police officer, an astronaut, a vet, a teacher............the list goes on and on. that is why the teacher's at my children's school are so incredibly clever! they created a parent job share month, where a student can learn about what different jobs are out there and have fun dreaming of the different things they want to become.

this year noah has had many different "jobs" represented: police, fire, emt, doctor, sales reps and even someone who has worked at the white house for many years came to speak to them. his favorite were the doctor..........obviously from the pictures you can see that the kids each got some surgical stuff to wear home!

his other favorite..............the perfume sales rep!!! no lie. the kid came home with a bottle of tim mcgraw cologne. now i love tim mcgraw....but if he smells like that, i might have to reconsider! maybe in smaller doses, but noah enjoyed it so much that he sprayed himself and anything else that had legs about 50 times!!!

so bless you teachers for the amazing gift of stinky perfume that lingers in my house til this day!
