By the time I am done teaching on Friday, it is 9:00, and I feel like my day has been wasted away into nothingness. There's not a whole lot of time to do things for myself, and I feel positively exhausted once classes are over. Actually, that state of exhaustion pretty much starts after the first 10 minutes of AK, if you want to be honest. Still, how can you not love these kids?
The first rotation: Zoe, Immy, Candice, Sam, Vincent, Daniel, and Oscar (who was absent today)
Zoe (who we thought was named "Lori" for about a week") Immy, and Candice
Sam ("love" may not actually be the right word for this kid, but he's doing a little better ever since we got our third rotation)
Zoe, again. Seriously, doesn't she look like some sort of gorgeous child model?
Daniel (he didn't want to dress-up, but he asked me to take a picture of him erasing the board, so I did)
Rotation number two consists of Jay, Jack, Tim, Tiffany, Kyran, Peko, and Coco.
Jay (again, not sure if "love" is the right word here)
Kyran- he for sure has an aunt that lives in Australia because he's told me about it several times now in very specific details. He just doesn't know how to tell me why she lives in Australia.
Kyran and Tim
Tiffany, my little Diva.
Crazy Jack. He's been sick this week, but he insisted today that he was not too sick to play.
Coco and Peko
My second rotation. I could not get them to cooperate well enough to see everyone's faces at the same time, so I had to take too shots. See below:
Left to Right: Jay, Kyran, Tiffany, Peko (in the back with the cow hat), Coco, Tim, and Jack
And, finally, the third rotation, the children that most often make me want to pull out my hair, stomp my feet, or throw someone out the window (occasionally all three) Nick, Danny, Carl, Derrick, Ray, Mia, and Angelina.
Nick (who didn't want his picture taken) and Danny
Ray again. He keeps telling me his name is Ferrari. I have no idea where he got that, but he does know what a Ferrari is.
Special, special Mia. This child has no coordination whatsoever. She's very sweet, though.
Mia and Angelina
You guessed it: Ray.
Derrick, my saving grace in the third rotation
Carl, who keeps telling me he is named "Kevin." I may need to check up on this. This child... There are not words. He's new, so I may yet learn to love him, but... Until then, he likes to try my patience more than most of the other kids.
(P.S. I took all of these pictures today. They are not the ones that I have been meaning to post. I'll try to get around to those ones this weekend.)
