Mule Deer Antlers
They also brought along two king snakes which love to eat rattle snakes. King snakes are the ones you want to have as they eat many predators. The rattle snakes just hide in their corner when they sense a king snake near. Now the snakes they brought were real and when they asked who would like to hold one my name from teachers and students was shouted out. I am not a snake lover. I encountered many a snake the 9 years I was in Mississippi. I either ran and screamed from them or killed them if they would not leave our playground. I thought be brave and pretend you like it. I know a couple times I cringed as it was moving up my arm with the forked tongue flashing in and out.
The other exciting event this week in school was the annual Last Blast or to most people final school picnic. We began with games as you can see.
Old Fashion Sack Race
After bingo karaoke!!! and of course their favorite-make your own ice cream sundae with about 10 toppings.
The first Student Council of the school celebrated the end of their term with the following menu: Papa Murphy's Pizza, Sr. Carol's homemade cookies and Orange Fanta. They chose to have the party at the Sisters' house. After eating they had their favorite recess game "Groundies". Know how to play it?
They ate the whole batch of chocolate chip cookies!
With my 3rd and 4th grade Religion class we prayed the rosary outside stopping at religious spots on our campus. Each student gave a petition before they lead their part of the rosary. This truly gave insight as to what these children are thinking but don't always say. One petition was: For the pain to be soon gone of the children whose parents are divorcing.
This Sunday morning as I arrived at about 6:45am for the first Mass of the morning I saw our neighbors taking an early morning walk up our road!
Then it was time to take a picture of the beautiful flowers blooming in front of our school.
Onto the 2nd Mass of the day where the new altar servers were commissioned at Mass. What a beautiful ceremony. The parents had to tie the cord around their child's waist.
Onto graduation and the final awards ceremony of the year and Vacation For The Students!!!!!!
