Johnny Appleseed Day

I am sure that  people who love  apples  knows the origin of the Appleseed Day  celebration.  I just learned that when my children started going to school.  This  celebration is dedicated to a man named Jonathan  Chapman, an american pioneer nursery man who introduced  apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and West Virginia.  He became a legend and  known as Johnny Appleseed because of  his  project of planting an apple seed  everywhere he went.  
Every class  has activities like making caramel apples and did some crafts.
Thanks for commenting.

Little Girl Misses Mommy

While I was waiting for the other Mommies to arrive at the school's cafeteria, I took advantage of the time by taking pictures of the arts/drawings that are posted on the wall.  The librarian at the school is also the art teacher, she is  member of an art  organization and she  always encourages  the kids to practice their talents.
My daughter told me a couple of weeks ago that the art teacher saw her sketch  and ask her if she can  use  it as exhibit in an art show.  Man, that  motivate Ms. Burrito to sketch some more.  She told me that if she should have known that it was going to be displayed, she could  have made it better.  
She said that she  was just sketching this because the little girl that was in her mind was missing  her Mom.  "That's why, she looks sad" she said.

Kids at their Best

Mr. Burrito is getting serious with his study now, he realized that it is a real deal now and  he can no longer slack off  just like when I was teaching him at home.  I am glad that Ms. Burrito is very much willing to help hi little brother  learn how to read.  Here's my kids at theiir best, reading books together.
Below is their progress report.
Ms. Burritos report.
 I am so surprised that he  is doing really well, he even have an outstanding  one.  I guess I underestimated   my son's  ability.
