So, I broke my promise and haven’t written a post in a bit, so I thought I’d make this one extra interesting! Personally, I’m not a fan of candy corn, but I know lots of you love it. This video matches up well with the Text of the Week article about this sugary treat that so many of you crave!
I have a fear of spiders.
They are not cute. They have too many legs. They drop down from things unexpectedly. They make sticky homes.
I have friends who held a dinner party and served this appetizer. Would you eat some?
Yesterday, September 13, was Roald Dahl’s birthday. He was one of my favorite authors when I was a child.
For those of you who have read his books, the above quote captures his personality, doesn’t it? For those of you haven’t read his books, well…what are you waiting for? There’s no time like the present. 🙂
As I was looking at TweenTribune.com, I came across an extremely interesting article. Follow this link goo.gl/AIeJ92 to read it!
Should we be afraid or embrace this newly discovered creature? Can we trust the source the information came from? Is it a child’s toy or a new discovery? What do YOU think?
Recently, it’s a number I’ve decided that I like. It’s not the number of freckles I have or the amount of pets my daughters want- although I’m sure they’d happily accept them. 🙂
Seventy-one is a great number because it’s the number of YOU! There are seventy-one amazing, smiling, and enthusiastic faces that I’m greeted by throughout the day. Thank you, sixth graders, for approaching your first few days of middle school with such a conscientious attitude. Your fifth grade teachers were right…you’re a pretty amazing group! I can’t wait to see what we’ll accomplish this year together.
