Thank you Ruth for inspiring me to always look for the celebrations in life!
Join us and share your celebrations!
It's been a long week. How does time work? Weeks with three-day weekends seem to always feel longer. Can anyone explain that to me? In this long week, I've been enjoying working with students. We've begun our process of reflecting on ourselves and our writing! That's always fun. In this process, I collected my notebooks from this year, so I could reflect along with them and discovered that I couldn't find a notebook (or maybe 2 notebooks...turns out it was only 1 notebook and I need to update my count). What startled me is that I couldn't even visualize what this notebook looked like! I celebrate my students! They were able to give me details that they remembered, "It was a big notebook." "I think it was white." "The one from the beginning of the year had spirals." "It said YOU MATTER on the title page." They remembered so many details! I went home and found it sitting next to my bookcase of notebooks. YAY! 6th graders! Thank you for being my memory for me!!
I celebrate the slowing down of life. My evaluation is complete. My graduate class is done. There are twelve days of school left. In the midst of the crazy chaos, life really is slowing down. I had time to bring Bella to the vet this week...
I celebrate new shoes. Funky. Colorful. Comfortable!
I celebrate finding a hilarious and fun new app called Dubsmash. I heard about it on the Ellen Degeneres show. Singer Josh Groban talked about it. I'm hooked! As I posted on Instagram this week, I am finally able to live my life long dream of being a singer! Here's some of my performances. Please enjoy!
