See our Giving Tree? Isn't it fun? Those are apples taped on by the students and me. They wrote sweet intangible gifts on their apples - respect, kindness, laughter, courage, talent, and many other things they can give our school and our classroom community. It was fun and now I have a Giving Tree growing in my room. Happy, happy.
Here's Birdie all jammy-ed up just before she went home last night. I love her little long-johns. Don't you just want to smooch her?
On our way back from the park last night, I had to stop at my favorite garden and snap these lovely, poke-y things!
We see Zelda and her mistress around the neighborhood quiet often. She entertained us with her red ball fetching. She's all wiggles and love.
In the strollers - ready to go! Let's go Ginx! Birdie still calls me "Ginx" but I think her name for me will morph into Grans.
I must stay late at school today to get ready for Monday. We've had a great week. The kids are dear and things are shaping up. It's exhausting and busy with a million things to do every minute, but standing in front of 115 teenagers every day is quite an honor. I'm thankful.
Happy Friday to you! xopp
