April 30th

It was neat watching some of my students working the dance program at school. One person was using the mat and one person was using a controller. Hhhmmmm...which one had the better workout????

My oldest created this shoe with perler beads. She said, "This is Cinderella's shoe. She dropped at the ball, but the prince didn't pick it up. I did and that's my story."

I thought that would be a great writing prompt for students:
What if you went to the ball and saw Cinderella drop her shoe. You picked it up before the prince got to it. How would your story end?

My daughter had to do a report on an old object, heirloom or old photo. It made me think of the little music box that my grandmother gave me when I was about 8 years old. It still plays and makes me think of her when I wind it up. I can't help but smile when I hear it play.

The science teacher at my school has a container with a goldfish on every table. The kids learn to take care of them and it's better to look at than a box of crayons!!

This was a bumper sticker in the car parked next to mine when I went shopping. I had to take a picture of it. Is there such a thing as a normal husband?? Inquiring minds want to know...

Just helped my friends haul some wood from their patio. It didn't seem like THAT much wood under the tarp. More to do next weekend! Thanks for the pizza!

My daughter and neighbor were doing their Science Fair project today involving bubble gum. It was pretty amusing watching everyone blow bubbles for them to measure.

I got to see my neighbor after she got ready for her prom. She looked stunning in her dress. Notice what the girls are wearing as prom shoes now a days! Got to love it!

Took my kids to Karate and Sensei's dog was walking around with her Kenpo shirt on. It read, "Warriors are not born. They are created at Counterstrike Kenpo Karate". Talk about your free advertising.

I just love to see spring in bloom. I see these trees all around my neighborhood. I don't know what they are called, but I like them.

One of my students was being very creative after taking his PSSA. He drew this on his chair with eraser. Creative yet easy to clean up afterwards.

April 8th

As I was walking into work, this was parked in front of the school. I walked in and said, "I know we've been stressed out this year. This would be a nice gesture on a hot day like today." Of course I was shot down. It just was a parent that was parked there to run in to the building briefly. DARN!!

This was the temperature of my classroom in the afternoon. The school district doesn't allow the air conditioner to go on until April 15th, so my students have to suffer in the lab with this heat! Life is sometimes cruel.

Just finished watching my kids and nieces dye eggs. Even the baby got to drop an egg in the dye (after she dropped it on the floor a few times). The guys are all over my brother-in-law's house smoking cigars for his birthday.

Kids at the park playing on a large tree branch. It was quite amusing watching them bounce with the branch. It was such a nice day out.

Okay, so I know it's April Fool's Day, but this is no joke. I had a few kids sleep over and they went crazy with perler beads. I must have ironed over 15 designs. My oldest created this one. I copied them off the internet and the kids just copied them. What talent!
