1st graders...the boyfriend I never had...


I am student teaching in Utah in a 1st grade classroom and I adore them, which has caused me to think...they are like the boyfriend I never had. For example:

1. When I'm not with them I'm thinking about them

2. I'm telling "cute" stories about them to my friends and family

3. They hug me

And they've said the following to me...

4. "You have shiny teeth"

5. "You have soft skin"

6. "I love you"

7. "You're the best"

8. "You're pretty"

9. "I like your hair"

10. "Oh....your outfit is soooo cute today"

Too bad we're breaking up in November. Rebound anyone??

JANE!!!!

What have you been up to even??? I did not even know you were in Utah. In fact...I do not know anything about the Metcalf side of my family. I am so out of the loop. I wish that I was not, but I get these crazy ideas and do crazy things. You know...the person who wants to change the world one person at a time...
