Junie B. Jones

It is Book Week at Blandford Elementary!  We have a parade and each class dresses up as characters from a book.  The classes decorate their doors and bulletin boards for the book, etc...  Mrs. Allen (the best teacher in the world, by the way) loves Junie B. Jones.  They are hilarious little chapter books about a very mischievious little girl!   Here are some pics, and make sure you look at the video, I had to post it separately.  But when you see Paulie Allen Puffer, you know that Mrs. Allen definitely knows her characters.  And it is hilarious, when Paulie stops to act like he is going to throw his football at the videographer (me) and I am saying, GO! GO! GO!  I was nervous he was going to throw the ball!  Amazingly, he had made it through the whole school (and it is BIG) without actually throwing it!!!!  Again, Mrs. Allen has magical powers:)

Mrs. Allen bribed Michael with a sucker to be Baby Ollie (Junie B.'s baby brother)  But Michael has a great personality and probably would have done it just for the ride!!

Some characters from the book series, but none as interesting as:

Paulie Allen Puffer in action!

Is this not perfect???

Through this post, I have been singing Mrs. Allen's praises.  I am not exaggerating.  She is incredible.  Colton has had a rough couple of weeks with his behavior and I had sent her an email apologizing.  I am pasting her response to me.  It made me cry... 

"Colton is fine- he is a beautiful work in progress- do not worry about us- I just want to keep you in the know so you can also address things that might need extra reinforcement. Colton has my heart."

What more could you ask for in a teacher???  She is so wonderful.  I always say, they either love him or hate him.  Thank goodness she loves him:)


  1. He is adorable and I am so glad tht he got to have a ball in his hand. As Mothers I think we tend to worry too much some times. Thanks for sharing. Look forward to seeing the two of you at Thanksgiving. Donna

  2. Love the comment by his teacher. If only all teachers (myself included) had that passion for reaching children. See you this week.

  3. Billie, I will never forget this and can't remember where I heard it. "How do I discipline this child without breaking his spirit" Colton is his own person and we love him. We are all looking foward to seeing all of you Thanksgiving. Hope Rod is better. Debbie
