What happened to June and July? I blinked and missed them....
But anyway it's my last Friday. School begins Monday!
Doodle Bugs! The new blog design is awesome!!
I am enjoying Outlander AGAIN! I just finished actually reading Diana Gabaldon's eighth book in her Outlander series. I have listened to the audio version of the first 6 books and just decided a few days ago to get the very first book from Audible and listen to it AGAIN while I walk every day. It's awesome. You really should try the series.
Are you ready for this?
Crayons and Whimsy!
This quirky little set of Jamberry nails came from her after I mentioned that I didn't think it would work for me!
Well, they do work!
I have the teeny tiniest nails and I am hoping covering them like this will help them grow a little. In the meantime it's impossibly cute! Even Hubs loved it!
I still have a few things to do in my classroom. I am taking some plants tomorrow to hang. Then I need to just straighten things up a little. The lab is mostly ready. The real work I need to do is planning for the first couple of weeks. I have some lists made of activities to start with- including rockets, helicopters, and airplanes.
Hmmmmm...I did not, really, did not plan for all three grade levels to do something aero-spacey.
QUICK QUIZ- Do you know what those things are in that photo????
I had a few of these in the lab last spring and had a child ask, "What are these cute little cans?"
"FILM once came in those cute little cans," I said. She blinked.
Then I remembered. Today's kids have never seen film. They think phones take pictures.Anyhow, I needed more of these and finally found them on Amazon. You can buy anything on Amazon.
It is often too hot in Alabama in the summer and playing is brutal. This week, however, the high temp has been 80 degrees! It's like an Arctic blast.
Anyway, we are playing this afternoon and maybe tomorrow! Especially since our out-of-town trip this weekend is being postponed. (Our fur-baby sitter was not available!)
Cat Facts of the Week!
Cats can read.
That is why they always come and sit on top of whatever you are reading. They are bored with chasing stuffed mice or balls with bells in them and they take time out to read.
The actually prefer the newspaper to read as it also doubles as a place to lie down.
Cats know, no matter how sweetly you call them, that the appearance of the PET TAXI means trouble. Older cats actually know to run off and hide.
Baby cats are quite easy to catch.
(Roo had some booster shots!)
I am off to put together an aero-space extravaganza. I love that this idea just popped into my head as I was posting this! Ha!
