Day One of the Second Half

Today was Day One of the Second half of the school year.  It was a good day on the school front.  Starting a month of fitness where we are doing a different fitness exercise routine.

This week is Yoga and it was a fantastic today.  The kids enjoyed and so did I.  There was only hangup, the Boy.  He loves having me there and it is awesome but today he threw me a curveball.  He was making jokes and goofing off a bit.  I repeatedly asked him to stop, and it got to where he had to sit out.  He was not happy.

After a few minutes as is standard in my class I went over to talk to him.  Asked why he was acting out and he answered, "I just want to have more fun."  He liked the class but this is his common answer to Dad not Mr. Dad.  We had a brief talk about why this was wrong and he returned to class.

I find it hard some days to keep that Dad/Teacher line.  Today was one of those days.  It all worked out in the end.  these days make me think of the near future when the Girl will be in Kindergarten.  Maybe then the gym uniform will have some pink in it for the Pink Princess.
