Hubs is in charge of kids?!?!!?!!?!?

About a month ago I somehow coerced the hubs to take a Saturday off to chaperone a school field trip with me. I purposely left out the fact that he would be in charge of his OWN group of kids. I then proceeded to tell him how one of my friends (a fellow teacher), her boyfriend lost one of the kids at the Astro's game a few years ago when he chaperoned. I then smiled and told him he'd be fine. ;)

V came and visited my classroom last year during Wax Museum (one of my proudest moment!) and he was able to experience first hand the stress I go through on a daily basis being in charge of and mothering 100+ darlings a day. It was definitely an eye opening experience for him!

Like I said, I somehow convinced him that it would be a GREAT afternoon and that the only kiddos allowed to go on the field trip were the ones who had somehow managed to not get an office referral or be absent. None of my students had ever been to a college football game, so it was a great experience for them! I told V to let me know if he still wanted to have kids after the crazy afternoon... Good news! HE STILL DOES! :)

The kiddos were fabulous and so well behaved. I was one proud teacher! :) And hubs survived and passed the "taking care of children" test with flying colors... Baby here we comeeeeeeee!!!!!

This week is drug free awareness week and of course I have school spirit and participate in everything (and attend everything... Allstar teacher right herrrr!) Today was NEON day...

Of course I decided to break out my bright yellow skirt (that's been sitting in my closet with the tags still attached. You may recognize it from one of my outfit posts from the beg. of the year - never wore it until today!) Obviously I wasn't the only one who decided that yellow and pink would be perfect... Two of my favorite girls had the same thoughts I did this morning while getting dressed... TRIPLETS!!!

P.S. I spent an ungodly amount of money on clothes I reallllllly needed over the weekend. I can't wait to post outfit pictures (I may attempt the hubs taking the pictures again - but we all remember how big of an epic fail it was last time!)

  14. I love your neon outfit. We had drug free week this week, too. I was going back over my comments and find one that I guess I had missed and it made me go "ahh she understands this whole teacher thing." Thanks for getting it.
    Enjoy your weekend, girl, because we deserve it!

  15. I love that the husband passed the children test. That's funny. :)

    Love the outfit and yellow skirt! I'd love to own one, but I know I'd always wonder what to wear it with!

    Happy Saturday!
