This was a weekend about snow and parties. :)

On Saturday we were suppose to have our Christmas party for Andrew’s class, but on Friday, as I saw the reports for the storm changing, I started calling parents, checking in about it, and decided to go ahead and move the party to Sunday.

So that left Saturday for snow.



Which was pretty fun. :) (Expect the part when Isaac sled right into a fence…that part STUNK. but…that little lamb recovers pretty quickly!)


Then on Sunday, we rushed out of church a little early to get home to get ready for the Christmas party.


There are 6 kids in Andrew’s class, and all but one were able to come. There is one little boy that has never been able to come to Andrew’s birthday or Christmas parties, so for this party, his teacher picked him up and brought him (!) and then his mom came later to get him. :) It was GREAT to have him join us and I can’t believe how dedicated their teacher is to help out like that. :) So, the only classmate that wasn’t able to come is the only girl in the class…and believe me! She was missed!




After eating pizza their collective dreams came true and they all played wii together. :) It was a little intense, but Dave stepped in to monitor “taking turns” and “playing nicely” so I could talk to the moms. And I gotta say, whenever Dave steps in with this group to help out and play with them, the other moms ALWAYS have things to say about it. “I can’t believe how much he helps you!” “How does he know what to do with the kids?” And it’s true, I am a very lucky lady. The kids started calling him “Andrew’s Dad”…as in “Andrew’s dad, can you help me with this remote?” ha!


When the party was over and everyone was on their way home I asked Andrew how he got such great friends (they really are a SUPER great group of kids!). And he said “well…it all started in Kindergarten….”

true that!


Hope you had a lovely weekend!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.

    Aw! Love the fact a teacher went out of their way to have the child participate. Amazing teacher you have there.

      It’s true. This lady has a heart of gold. :) So much so that at the beginning of the year I was worried they would walk all over her…but nope! She holds her ground too. :)
