Ll my name is Lisa


Okay, I created this blog months ago, fully intending to post and post often. Alas life gets in the way. A little about me, I a 40 something mom of three boys commonly referred to around here as small, medium and large. When I say large, I mean large, a 6'1" bean pole. Medium is on his way to becoming large, he takes great pride in the fact that at 5'6" he's officially "taller than you mom!"
Little will eventually be large too, but he's got a few years to go. The saddest part of this story...I am the shortest person in the house and probably weigh the most, okay, maybe hubby weighs more, but really there is no justice. 
I have to say, large or small they are three great boys, well behaved (for the most part), good students, good athletes, polite and respectful. They do have their moments...afterall, Medium is 13 ("nuf said), but Large is proof that there is light at the end of that tunnel!
Hubby and I have been married for 20 years. Twenty years, unbelievable. He's a pretty good guy too, I'm very lucky. He's currently working at a career change. He's going to become a fellow educator. I am immensely proud of him, it's not easy to reinvent yourself in your mid-forties, but he's plugging along and doing very well. He is currently working as a teacher's assistant in a pre-school for Autistic children. I don't know how he does it. 
I am a kindergarten teacher...hence the title of my blog. Adventure does not even begin to describe it. I LOVE my job. I can't imagine doing anything else. I have the privilege of educating 5 year-old. I get them as babies, scared, unsure and unruly and turn them into readers! Can you imagine? It's an amazing transformation. 
They make me laugh everyday and I hope I can share some of that with all of you. We have our ups and downs, sure I get frustrated sometimes, sometimes they drive me crazy, but even when I have a bad day, I don't mind trying again tomorrow. And at the end of the year, when it's time to say good-bye I always shed a tear or two or three. I sometimes wonder who has learned more about themselves.
