 Blogging every day is amounting to quite a few reruns of my photos.  Nasturtiums are my favorites (peonies are a close second) and the orange here is stunning.  I think I shall wear orange to school today. 
 If someone said to me, "You can go to New York City and stay in Times Square or you can go to Maine again.  What do you choose?"  I choose Maine.  Oh, I LOVED it so much two years ago and I still cherish the memories.
 I found the whale watching expedition invigorating!  The air was cool, the wind was friendly, and the whales showed up!  
 The kids at school are SO nice, really.  They love to be loved.  They enjoy sharing their thoughts.  I feel right at home in the classroom and I am VERY thankful for this particular group.  I'm thankful for the textbooks our principal purchased for us.  I put little sweaters on them.  Do you like?
 Yesterday we read "Names, Nombres" and we shared out beautiful words we know from other languages.  My favorite is abuelita which means little grandmother in Spanish.  The students shared phrases like "my mother is beautiful" in Arabic and Spanish.  They have sweet hearts.

 In keeping with this random style of blog posting, I thought you could use a taste of fresh (I must begin taking my camera to the grocery store again!)

 I found this baby photo of Miss Bug.  Isn't she a shiny little cherub?
And this is just to say that it is snowing. I must bundle up and slide my sled to school. The students will be cold today, so I'll use my brilliant friend MK's idea and project a crackling fire on the screen as we read.
Take care, kind reader!  Thank you for your visit and your cheerful comment!

Well I enjoy your reruns of your past pictures. I love that you have snow today. Only I wish you could bundle up and stay at home.
We are having lovely storms too. So nice.
I hope you have a wonderful day.

I like your sweatered books and I like the idea of projecting a crackling fire during reading time. I wish you would have been my teacher many years ago. Thanks for all you do to love and teach those wonderful children.

Yay for classroom fires (of the video variety) !! Tomorrow our high will only be 43, which is mighty chilly for this part of the world. Have a blessed Sunday, Pom.
