Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!!

Hey Everybody...

Are we there yet?!?!?!  When are we gonna get there? Huh? Huh? Huh?  You know me, I'm a foot dragger - Got 'em where I want 'em and don't want to let 'em go!  But I am a little tired of their crazy antics these last few days. 

Yesterday was a {much needed} half day - like a REAL one.  Not one where the kids go home and the parents think you go home too, but you don't - you sit in meetings all day long and wish you were teaching instead but the general public thinks you get all these days off but you really don't...but yesterday...


And this weekend is a nice long one! The Memorial Day parade is one of my favorites - honoring those who fight or have fought for our freedom always gives me goosebumps.

My Uncle David fought in Vietnam.  I never got to meet him, but love listening to stories his sister {my mom} tells about him and am in awe of his bravery.

Have you ever visited the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Wall?
I read this book yesterday {It's a tear-jerker}...

I didn't forget the moms!
If there's a military hero you'd like to honor - feel free to share in my comments.

Happy l o n g weekend to ya's!

Five For Friday

I'm starting this blog post - and if it makes it to the end, you know...


I made it to the end. Because right now I'm predicting I'll get about mid-way and throw in the towel. {Of course if that were the case - you wouldn't be reading this because I wouldn't post that nonsense...} That's how it has been these last few weeks. I try to sit down and concentrate only to either:

A, B & C:  Fall asleep {I have home row permanently embedded on my forehead}

I think I can muster up enough energy to post five random pictures from my week.  Thanks Doodle Bugs Teaching!

My pitcher boy...

Reviewing some blends...

I have no energy to fix this...

She's BEGGING to be walked...who can resist?

Lots of lilacs came my way this week...I had the sweet smell with me wherever I went...
I made it to the end. Miracles do happen.  I hope you all had a great week!  So how many of us are on summer vacation?  Go ahead - you can tell me, I can handle it.  For those of us still mustering up enough energy to make it through these last long do you have?

Happy Friday!

Teacher Appreciation

Hey Everybody!

I sure hope somebody, somewhere shows you that they appreciate you - because you are a mountain-mover!  

Visit me at my store!
I consider all of you, out there, my colleagues.  Thanks, so much, for "listening" and sharing your ideas with me.  I learn as much {if not more} from you as I hope you learn from me.  Teaching isn't always glamorous {okay, glamorous might be a stretch any way you look at it} but blogging and connecting with all of you helps me stay focused and thanks!
