Every Saturday I get the opportunity to celebrate the week over at Ruth Ayres' blog,
Discover. Play. Build. Thank you! It's become a highlight of my blogging week!
This has been a week with so much to celebrate! Ruth, I'm so grateful for this opportunity to blog about it. Blogging gives me time to reflect and share my joys. Onto the celebrations...
Risk is my OLW for the year and I've taken another risk this week.
I offered my blog as a place to share reflections on our second round of #Nerdlution. Putting myself out there was a risk because I worried no one would show up. It's back to that need of being accepted. Silliness. A few people shared their blogs and responded. My hope it that it will grow with each week. I'm glad I took that risk.
Speaking of blogging...I'm LOVING blogging. I celebrate the friends I've made here and on TWT and through twitter and the Nerdlution. I feel connected like I haven't felt in a long time. I'm writing more than ever and it feels great! Looking back on my blog is starting to give me an idea of what my story is. I've been searching for it. I want to write it. My hope is blogging will bring me closer, so I can finally write...the whole story, whatever that is.
That leads me to my students...they are blogging.
We were featured in a local newspaper article (front page). Here's the article. The reported misspelled my name with a u instead of an a. My students were upset. I used this as an opportunity to discuss audience and editing their own blogs. Speaking of their blogs...oh my goodness...they are blowing me away with their reflection and their creativity! They love comments! If you are interested, here's the link to our class blog Crayons & Pencils.
Their blogs are listed on the side. Feel free to stop by and comment on any of the blogs. They'd love it! (So would I.)
Celebrating Leo's birthday.
My little puppy turned eleven yesterday! Oh I love him!! He's back to himself after all of his little health scares. That's big news to celebrate!
Finally, celebrating warmer weather.
It was in the 50s here yesterday. I finally got a car wash. Thank goodness! It feels good to see some higher temperatures.
Oh! How could I forget...I finally finished my GIANT yellow notebook
and started my 57th notebook. Here it is...
I'm still searching for a title for it. Suggestions are welcome.
