cobbler, newlyweds, and preschool

sorry. long time no post. well, let me rewind things a bit. alli and jacob were here for layna's wedding and we were fortunate enough to have them stay for almost two weeks after the wedding. for labor day we had a huge feast (including chris' ribs, homemade baked beans, fruit, texas toast, etc). but the star of the show was larissa's peach cobbler. it was insanely delectable! i have a feeling alli wont appreciate this picture very much...i have a knack for posting such pictures :)
we are missing these two punks very much
is this not one of the cutest faces ever? i have a huge soft spot for everett, especially when he's in his shiny blue speedo

i have started teaching a small preschool group. they meet twice a week and i only have to teach every third week. they started last week and today was my first time teaching. these guys were so much fun, i am looking forward to wednesday.
here's an upclose and personal view of my pupils!


( of course )

as luck would have it, jack decided to break a snow globe right towards the beginning of my first time teaching. do you know what the fluid is inside of a snowglobe? i can tell you. oil! yes, oil! lets just say it made a rotten mess and took quite a while to clean up. the kids kept running through it so i made them all sit on the edge of the tub and wash their tootsies. and i had to snap a picture cause they looked so stinkin cute.

i made this little hanging pocket thing for the kids to keep all of their school work in. i thought it turned out pretty neat. i put their names on their pocket with that printable fabric. have i ever mentioned how much i love that stuff? its awesome for lazy people like myself that cant/dont take time on projects!
this is chris's last week of work. he starts school full-time on the 28th and we are both excited to have him start....because it means we are that much closer to finishing! it has been over 4 years since chris started working the night shift at work! i had a hard time getting used to sleeping without him at night and i have a feeling it will take some getting used to having him there again, but i dont mind in the least :)

Whoo! You are awesome! We're just on the beginning end of the whole night job to get experience hours for grad school thing. It will be 100% wonderful when this phase is over!

Also, that's a great idea, the paper-hanger thingy. I love it. We have tons of papers that I never know what to do with, and I might just have to copy you.

...where do you get that printable fabric?

Very cute Lis! You never cease to amaze me! That's great that you're teaching pre-school, and I hope you love it! Your little pupils are adorable. And I'm glad that you have finally solved the mystery of the sno-globe liquid! Actually I guess we could thank little Jackman for that one! Oh!...and when did you guys get that back door put in??? Love you guys!!!

I just learned how to do Blackberry cobbler and it is good. But the peach one looks yummy too. What type of preschool are you doing?

hope you don't mind if i quote you in a comment, but you just said "lazy people like myself that cant/dont take time on projects". are you kidding?!??! you are not lazy and you make the most wonderful heartfelt crafy little projects, if i were doing pre-school papers would be littering my floor, but not you- you have them all cute and classy in their own little recepticles- way to go!
