Sometimes in life we wish we could go back and do it differently. In the acting world, “bloopers” are a must (retake 🎬) however, they make the funniest clips at the end of the film.
This is similar to life. When we think,"𝓌𝒾𝓈𝒽 𝒾 𝓌𝑜𝓊𝓁𝒹 𝑜𝒻 𝒹𝑜𝓃𝑒 𝓉𝒽𝒶𝓉 𝒹𝒾𝒻𝒻𝑒𝓇𝑒𝓃𝓉𝓁𝓎" the beauty in those mistakes are the lessons we learn. Sometimes, we learn for our sake, other times we learn for the sake of others. In any event, it teaches us, and if your lucky enough to catch the moment...it makes us laugh.
So, I totally didn't understand the concept of this "Elf on the Shelf" thing. I've always wanted to do it for my kids and just never did. I finally caved (of course, after seeing this Vikings one) and I told my kids "you go to bed at night and I hide him then you find him when you wake up". LOL! I obviously had no idea at the time that wasn't how it works. After seeing another mom post something on FB of what the instructions actually are, I told Noah that the elf hides himself at night. He didn't believe me at all. Coincidentally(I promise I didn't hide him from them🙈), my kids misplaced him for almost 2 days and we couldn't find him anywhere. Tonight we found him and now the kids know that he does, in fact, hide himself around the house while getting into everything. 😉 they are now scared of Elf on the Shelf and say he's creepy. #FAIL#GotThemGood 😂😂😂
•April Fools Day Class Prank• This morning my class and I went on a bird hunt for the majestic Lirpaloof Bird.. A very elusive animal which migrates to our area early April every year. Due to its love of carrots, it's feathers are a vibrant orange. We spent 15minutes walking under tall trees, holding sticks of carrot up to the branches calling for the bird in the hope of viewing this ultra-shy creature. After finally confessing to the prank (lipraloof spelt backwards becomes aprilfool!), we then went back and created our own versions of what a Lirpaloof looks like in our own minds. Artwork will be posted next week once our water paint has been added! 🌳🐣 I found this creative class prank from the blog "Sunny Days in Second Grade" #aprilfoolsday#classprank#gotthemgood
