Teaching tolerance lesson....

This week I started my "teaching tolerance" lesson for K-2. We learned how our differences make us special and unique and how they should be celebrated and embraced. We read a book called Imagine, which is a story about what the world would be like if everyone was exactly the same. It's pretty fun to hear the kids' ideas when they start imagining a world where everyone looked just like them.

Each student decorated their own paper crayon and taped it onto the crayon box.

Crazy Love

With valentines day falling on a Tuesday this year the hubby and I spent it the munchkins at school. We were spoiled with candy, chocolate and cards.
Tonight we will spend the evening together at a budget meeting. Not super romantic but we as long as we get to be together it'll be great!
Happy Valentines day!

Wearable arts show 2012

The Wearable Arts Show is normally my "annual Molly date". My birthday present from Molly is always a date to the Wearable Arts Show but this year she's in Washinton, DC. She gave me the tickets and I decided to take Stephenie. We had a great time and enjoyed the show which was (as usual) amazing!

This is a dress made of mussel shells! So impressive!

Happy National School Counseling Week!!!

Today is the start of National School Counseling Week. Our fabulous supervisor gave all the school counselors appreciation cards and chocolate covered fortune cookies at our meeting today. While it's nice to have a national day of recognition it's even better knowing that you have the best job E-V-E-R.
It's going to be a good week ;-)

Bye, bye January

January brought loads of snow mixed with days of rain, ice and slush. The sun rarely made an appearance and when she finally showed her pretty face it was too cold to get out and enjoy it. The first weekend of February is bringing a false sense of spring. The days are noticably longer and the snow is melting as the temperature rises. It's only Februrary so I'm sure we're still in for a few more weeks of snow and chilly temperatures.
