This was a TGIF kind of day!
I DID see a shark while snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. It was a once in a lifetime kind of trip. The day was overcast and REALLY rough.
It was a little reef shark quite a bit away from us, but the guide we were with confirmed it. I made sure not to mention it to my husband until we were safely on the boat!
Speaking of the Irishman, we DID meet at summer camp. We were both counselors at the same sleep away camp. He *might* have been my supervisor when I started.
We kept in touch after the first summer and he flew to Arkansas for my sorority formal after I broke up with my high school sweetheart. We both returned to camp the next summer and started dating. The rest is history!
The lie? I did not set any track records. I did (barely) make the track team in 7th grade. I was in Latin Club and Marching Band in high school.
I LOVE it! My student teacher started book clubs last month with the students who are not in an intervention group. The kids were flying through books and I was having a hard time trying to explain to her how to plan activities for them to do as they read.
I am usually with my intervention group during this time, but they got pulled for picture day on Thursday and I had a chance to walk with the book clubs. They were making predictions, working with challenging vocabulary from the book, and summarizing. One of my students actually said that it made the book easier to understand.
I hate when you buy something that turns out to be more fluff than content. I started using all of this set right away! It is fantastic!
I was late for school. I had a meeting at 9 that let to me running around for the next hour. I had just finished entering the final round contests for our school wide Math March Madness when I had to leave to take my son to the doctor.
In all the craziness, I decided to take the kids back to school with me so I could wrap up a few things I hadn’t gotten to before I left. I had visions of my son playing quietly with the basket of stress balls. I thought my three-year-old daughter might like to practice her letters on the chalkboard door.
Instead it looked like this:
At least they had fun!
It is finally spring break!
The Irishman took the week off as well. We have family coming to visit for part of the week, but mostly we plan on hanging out and spending time with each other!
I should have my 100 follower giveaway posted Sunday. I am hoping to set things up tomorrow. If you would like to contribute, you can fill out this form.
Enjoy your weekend!
