Kyle has made it through his first week and a half of school! Yeah! He seems to be really enjoying it. He gets along great with the kids. His 4th period class is a 50 min long class (like the others) but adds in 1/2hr for lunch and 1/2 for homeroom. He isn't allowed to teach during that time, so he gets to see those kids a big chunk of the day. Well, the other day during homeroom, somehow the kids got on the conversation of drinking. Kyle mentioned how he has never had a drink in his life. The kids had a hard time believing that. Then one of the kids says, "Senor Hercules, you don't drink or do drugs, man you are starting to sound like a Mormon!" hahaha... Kyle said, well now that you mention it, I am one. The same kid then says there is a Mormon who happens to be in one of Kyle's other classes. So, after class Kyle pulls the LDS kid aside and says, "I heard something about you. I hear you're a Mormon. *pause* what ward are you in?" The kid was so surprised and was like "are you Mormon too?!?!?" Anyway, I just thought it was so funny, I wanted to blog about it before I forgot. For an assignment Kyle was having the kids do, they had to write 5 sentences using a verb. One of the kids said Mr. Hercules is CALVO. (I don't know how to write the whole thing in Spanish, or I would have. I was helping input grades for Kyle as he was grading this paper and he didn't know what Calvo meant. I looked it up online and it means Bald!!! haha... this made me laugh for a long time. I thought it was pretty gutsy for a student to write in the first week of class! I think teaching will be full of interesting stories, just like being a mom!
We were invited to go swimming at a previous ward member house this morning. We had a fun time and they even had a huge backyard the kids were playing in with a swing set too. One of the other families there had a little 4 month old baby. Conner ran up to him and just stared at him for a straight 5 min. Then he turns around looks at me and says "look mama, a baby! Can we take him?" I said no and he says "please mama, can we take him?" I told him we will soon have our own baby at home and that his parents will miss him if we take him. Then he ran off and didn't look at the baby again. I hope this means he will be a great big brother! I'm sure he will be!
