I love this opportunity to celebrate my week with Ruth Ayres at her blog on Saturday morning. It's a great way to start my weekend. I'm going to share my celebrations day by day.
Today the Nerdlution began! I wrote, read, and walked today. It felt great...like I accomplished something. These were things I'd wanted to re-focus on for awhile and nerdlution gave me the excuse.
@Mhaseltine you would have LOVED your favorite class of mine setting up their book club rules 😍 #teaching #adorable #litjourneyMy day started off in a different way. I spent half of my day in a different school coaching other English teachers. Getting an opportunity to talk about teaching and books and writing and best practices is a valuable opportunity. I feel like I learn as much from them as I hope they are learning from me. I always feel energized after spending this time together. While I was there, I got a tweet from another teacher I coach...so sweet!

|Happy to have me home and took good care of me.|
Today I took care of myself. Started the day feeling terrible and forced myself to go to work...bad idea. I asked for help and help was given. I came home and slept! The best part was my students. They made terrific choices when I was gone and had a great day! I celebrate them today
Impromptu dinner with my friend, Heather. We enjoyed our favorite indulgence, Dairy Queen. I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm addicted to the Candy Cane Blizzard. The LIVE television version of The Sound of Music. The Sound of Music is my favorite movie. This summer I attended an outdoor viewing where the audience sang along! I enjoyed the adaptation and admired the work that went into a live version.
One of my best friends texted me this picture with two simple words: I'm engaged!! What's better than watching someone realize their dreams?!? I'm overjoyed for her and her fianceé! Oh, and I'm also celebrating my peppermint hot cocoa with peppermint marshmallows...
I'm grateful for the opportunity to reflect on my week. I have so many other things to celebrate and had I not stopped and reflected, I'd have forgotten. Thank you to Ruth for this opportunity! Thank you to everyone who reads this today. Have a great weekend!
