What Kids Say..

Part of being Mrs. Coons is the kindergarten teacher part. It's a big part; after all I spend more of my "awake time" with my 16 little Kindles than I do with Mr. Coons. These littles keep me laughing, occasionally make me cry, always bring a smile to my face and rarely drive me so crazy that I'm upset. Maybe some of these conversations I've had over the last week will put a smile on your face too.

"Mrs. Coons, where did you get that ring? I want one like that."
"Well, that's my wedding ring. Mr. Coons gave it to me. You'll get one when you get engaged and married."
"Yeah. My mom has one of those too but her diamond is much, MUCH bigger."

"The Pilgrims and Puritans came to America on a ship called the Mayflower."
"I thought it was called the Cauliflower?"

(Backstory for this one - I work in a private Christian school; my mom just had a double lumpectomy on her breast cancer; we usually pray for God to 'place a healing hand' on someone) "Dear God, we pray for Mrs. Coons' mom. Please heal a hand on her."

(Showing a picture of bare trees) "Do our trees outside look like this right now? Or will it  take a few more months for the trees to lose their leaves?"
"Our trees don't look like that! The trees in that book are butt naked!"

Oh how I love these sweeties.

Almost One Year In...

I will tell you, I am still learning to become Mrs. Coons. This will be an ongoing process as I take on the upcoming years of our marriage, but there is nothing more worth it to me. As I type this Mr. Coons is telling me that watching Ryan Lochte is like "looking in a mirror." Let's be honest, Mr. C is more of a "Phelps" than a "Lochte" but I'm not about to dash his hopes and dreams. ;)

Have you all had a grand summer? Mine has been crazy! My first week of vacation is coming up TOMORROW! (Insert Hallelujah chorus) We will be heading to Panama City Beach with our best friends on Thursday so be on the lookout for some photos of that. Let's hope that they are legitimate photos from my DSLR & not Instagram photos, but no promises.

Mrs. Coons lately:

My fellow teachers/TAs and I went to a wedding at Biltmore for our sweet Kindergarten co-worker, A.

A & G are now married! Congrats, lovelies!

                      I turned this ^                         into                               this ^.

And if this isn't enough of my life lately you can follow me on Pinterest.
