May 31st

What did I do on Memorial Day, you ask??? Did I relax? Lay out by a pool on this beautiful day? Play with my kids? Oh no! I helped out with the remodeling at the Kenpo Dojo by painting. The kids ran around as Cindy and I painted. We were glad to help out our friend, Dave. The place looks awesome!

Mark and I took the kids to the LuLu Shrine Circus. This has been a tradition of ours for the last few years. This one was the best yet, although it was extremely hot and I got sunburn.

Went to the dojo to help paint, but had to do all the pre-work before hand. I sanded the walls and woodwork while Cheryl wiped the walls after me. The room is now prepped and ready for color.

Went to PF Changs for my birthday. I ordered the shrimp with candied walnuts and honeydew. Very yummy! I thought my fortune was a little strange though.

In Girlscouts we are working on a penny try-it. I gave the girls dollar bills and magnifying glasses then told them to try and find the animal on the front. They had to tell me what animal it was. Can you see it??

Today was the day my oldest cut her hair for lock of love! She wasn't too happy about it being so short, but wants to help others. She is so me!

My monkey boy climbing the rotating rock wall. It was actually really cool to watch. His best record climbing was 42 feet.

Yay! It's so nice to have a dishwasher that actually cleans dishes!! Thanks Dan for installing it! Funny story...The new dishwasher went in, but during the installation, the trap under the sink broke. I now have a dishwasher I can use, but a sink that I can't. Like Alanis Morrisette said, "Isn't it ironic?"

Time to say farewell to my pos dishwasher! Out with the old and in with the new! It's a shame that the trap was broken so right now my dishwasher works but I can't use my sink. :)

I did the Urban Seminar and this is my student teacher for 2 weeks. Although he is "tech ed", I am sure that he will learn a lot this week. His name is Mr. G from Millersville. I hope he enjoys the kids.

As I was walking up the hallway towards my classroom I happened to look down and notice the floor. Maintenance cleaned half of the hallway and what a difference it made. I didn't realize that the floors were white underneath the grime. LOL

Today was staff appreciation day. My principal provided breakfast for the entire staff. We had everything from bagels and fruit to breakfast wraps and coffee. YUMMY! I opened my email to find a Blue Mountain card from her. It's nice to know that, every once in a while someone acknowledges how hard I work. :)
