Second year of teaching completed. Woop Woop. It went surprisingly quickly and had lots of high and low points.
High points: Seeing their progress, especially their independence. Having at least 3 hugs a day and laughing on a daily basis.
Low points: A child throwing up on the carpet and down the back of a child but helpfully trying to catch it in their hands.
Funny points: Their drawings – I have a load of photos on my phone of their drawings that look like penis’. Equally, they can’t spell “can’t” or “country”. A child asking Vince Cable what the fastest dog in the world is. A child falling asleep in the middle of church, whilst on the stage, during the Carol Concert.
