This is Daci the day after she was precious!

She loves to sleep with her hands by her face.

This is when we took her home from the hospital, she rode the whole way home with her hands in the air! We were't expecting such a tiny baby so the outfit we took to take her home is was HUGE. The pants didn't fit at all and the top was like a dress on her :)

This is what Daci looks like after she eats, she is so alert and happy!

Daci Paras Roberts. Born February 21, 2009 at 1:20 pm. Weighed 5 lbs 15 ounces and is 19.5 inches long. She is such a tiny little thing! Don't ask me how Rick and I and our long, long genes ended up with such a tiny baby. We still can't figure it out. She is so precious and such a great baby, she is happy all day long and rarely cries....night time is a different story but it isn't too bad :) We love her so much and are pretty darn proud of her. I'm sure there will be many posts of Daci on here, hope you don't all get sick of it!

4th Grade Medieval Party!

This is one of the other fourth grade teachers, Joanna Baginska. We were the "royalty" of the court.

Me with a few of my girls after the party.

Me with the boys in my class after the party.

Three of my boys during the feast; Brendon, Chase, and Andrew.

Me with one of my students, Maliana.

The whole class dressed up in their costumes before we went down for the feast.

Well my last day of school was Friday January 30th. I decided not to go back after having the baby and be a stay at home mom and I am so excited! I did have a really hard time saying good bye to my kids though. They were a rough bunch but I loved them to death. There were lots of tears shed by me and the students on Friday. I was really glad that I was able to have one last hurrah with them on Wednesday day though. We have been learning about the Middle Ages the last few months and on the 28th we had our big Medieval Festival. They each had a role of serf, knight, duke/duchess, or count/countess. The three fourth grade teachers were the royalty so I got to be the Princess- yes, the pregnant princess :) It was so much fun! Many of the students provided the entertainment during the feast. Some of the entertainment included acrobats, musicians, jesters, story tellers, and jugglers. My class also learned a Medieval dance while one of the other classes put on a play. It was a great day and I was very grateful to get a chance to take some fun pictures before I left :)
