I am a Mommy!

To 2 baby chicks! Welcome to the world Peanut and Bob!!!!

The 3rd grade classes at my school decided to incubate chicken eggs this year to teach the students about life cycles. I have to admit, I was scared out of my mind. That's a lot of responsibility! What's going to happen?? Aren't they disgusting when they hatch? What if they die??? What if none of the eggs hatch??

Well, being the awesome teacher that I am, I decided I wanted to take on the challenge for my class. Each room got 12 eggs from the 4-H club to incubate. Our job was to roll the eggs 3 times a day and keep the incubator at 99-100 degrees for 21 days. Easy right? It is when you have 22 kids screaming at you to roll the eggs at 8:30, 11:30, and 2:30 each day!

*Warning: Some of these pictures are gross. LOL*

Here they are about to hatch on the 21st day!

Here comes Peanut!!!Hello world!!!!

Slimy, gooey, and sort of freaky looking.
My cuties!

He looks mean, but they're sooo cute in person!

Bob #1 actually ended up dying about 15 minutes after he hatched :( It freaked me out and I almost cried. He ended up having a hernia and it killed him. Shhhh the kids don't know. I told them that Mrs. McClaskey was taking care of him until he felt better. Luckily, that night another egg hatched. That morning I told the kids, "Bob felt so much better and wanted to come back to our class!!!!" Thanks Bob 2 for standing in :)

So last week we had some snow! Can you believe it? Snow in Virgina Beach??? Weird. What's incredibly ironic is that a few weeks before we had a "snow day" from school where there was NO snow. We were supposed to get a bad storm that never came; so we got a day off for nothing. Well, we were punished for that by the city and were made to work on Presidents Day. *gasp!* Well, we wake up on Presidents Day to this:

No joke. Snow on our snow day makeup. Did we get called off? Nope. The city wanted to prove a point I suppose. There were a lot of angry school goers that day.... the ONLY schools around to be in session.

Anyway, a few days ago we got a liiiiittle more:

and guess what?? We got a 2 hour delay. Does that make ANY sense at all?
I didn't think so.
