Ben's last day of school~!

This is Ben's first grade teacher, Mrs. Schlotterback.. She is going to have a baby June 25.   Ben was so excited to help me make this quilt for her.. Today was the last day of school and I brought it to school so Ben could give this quilt to her..  She really liked this quilt and said that her babies room was with a chevron design for a wallpaper border and in these colors.. Perfect~!    She is going to have a girl.. She even let the class vote for the name.. I thought that was brave..  
Another year is over and Ben is now going to be in 2nd grade next year.. Can't believe that this school year is all over.. 
       I volunteer for 2nd graders and next year I won't be able to do that.. Ben will be in that classroom.. So I went to the third grade teacher and asked if she would like me to volunteer in her classroom... She was so very excited.. Teachers really need our help with helping with their students...  Giving them one on one time in reading ~~~ helping them with their math...  correcting math and spelling for the teacher.. Soo if anyone has some time to help with teachers in their area,,,it would be a great thing if you could do this.. I go twice a week from 9 a.m. to 3p.m.   If you can't do all day then just do an hour or two... Its rewarding and time well spent in helping the children..  
      Have a great day...ta ta for now from Iowa:)

It's a wonderful day here in Iowa...Had a huge big storm last night... 60 mile wind and flat winds along with the rain... We got hail first... Big balls falling out of the sky.~!
Was driving in this mess and was so glad to get home and put car in garage.. I ran for the house and went to the basement.. Tornadoes sirens going off..  Yikes~!  My hair was on fire....LOL
Today is sunny and it is now 72 degrees.. going to be a nice go out and work on the weeds in the garden...
Ben will be home at 2:30  from school. early out today.... Last day of school is going to be next Thursday..May 29th.. Doesn't seem possible he is done with 1st grade and going into 2nd.. He is so smart.. He is reading 3rd grade level and doing 2nd grade math... Now if we could just get his social skills calmed down..
It will come with lots of time and patience.. I take him once a week to what is called Play Therapy.. It's actually counseling..and it's really helping him... a lot..
Haven't  been on here since my birthday in February.. Best to get started again since I miss all my favorite blog buddies.  So here is the beginning of a new start .....
    This is Ben at his school for track day.. Ben is on the left ..With his favorite buddies ~~ Grant and Andrew...
