Day 117 -- STARS --

Today was our PTO Teacher Appreciation luncheon. Our PTO is truly amazing! They went above and beyond this year decorating the library to look like a beach theme and preparing sooo many great dishes for us! There is always a raffle drawing every year also, with prizes ranging from gift cards to jewelry. :) Well... this year, I won a flower, and attached to it were these cool STAR earrings. And... the 1st thing I thought of was (drumroll...) THESE ARE DEN STAR earrings!
So... you better bet that they will be worn to the next DEN event! :)

Coffee, salt, flour, sand, water, MIX, MIX, MIX! My house reeks of coffee tonight!

Inside each little 'fossil egg' is a little plastic dinosaur. My first graders will be Paleontologists this week, as they locate their fossil egg, break it open, and begin researching the dinosaur inside. It's always an exciting time in first grade!

Day 59 ~ Olympic Endings ~

What an exciting hockey game tonight as the USA took on Canada. I snapped this picture as the game went into OT. However... I will say that Canada ended up with the Gold. I'm not at all upset with this, although I'd have loved to see USA grab it. BUT... our OWN Sidney Crosby (PITTSBURGH PENGUINS) made that winning goal!
