Thank you Ruth Ayers for giving us this opportunity to connect and celebrate! I love being part of an online community and celebrations are the best reason to connect!
This week has been a whirlwind of celebrations.
1. My youngest daughter is preforming in the Nutcracker and has a lead role. She has been dancing since she was three and landing a lead role made her estactic! This will be her first lead role on pointe! I wish I had a photo but, NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY please.
3. We are beginning to see a light at the end of a year long journey of back pain for my husband. We have exhausted all non-invasive treatments and are now hopeful of long term relief from surgery. We have really been against surgery and hoped to avoid this line of treatment but now we see such promise we are celebrating the physicians suggested procedure and the prognosis of relief!
4. My #nerdlution is well underway and I have removed the second book from my "To Be Read
"Will Peter Brown see it? Will other teachers comment to you? Will they teach this to their classes? Will they want to read this book too? We can put our work in VoiceThread so everybody can hear us talk about our work and THEY CAN COMMENT TO US. Oh, yeah, can we Mrs, Frazier? And we can tweet @itspeterbrown so he can comment to us too! "You will have to imagine the squeals (words wouldn't be sufficient) when I simply said YES! I have to admit some of those squeals were happening in the speech bubble in my head too! My kids get it! They understand the power and the ability of connecting. They know our classroom goes beyond our four walls!
6. …. and oh yeah, its beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I have been sitting here writing this post next to our Christmas tree while my house sleeps and snow falls, I love the quiet and the beauty of the snow. I am beginning to hear life upstairs. Please excuse me if I go live in my celebrations.
I am looking forward to reading gall your celebrations!
