Each Saturday Ruth Ayres invites us to share and celebrate events from our week. Looking for small celebrations has certainly improved my outlook on my week. For that, I am certainly grateful to Ruth and to all of you who choose to celebrate with us.
First celebration of the new year! My celebrations are usually connected in some way or have a theme. This week is a mish-mash of small things. Maybe if I number them, they will be a celebration of numbers!
1. Celebrating an end to a great two week break. It has been filled with food, family, books, writing, and a new addiction. I seriously think I have become addicted to Twitter. I am still scared of it, but wow it is so filled with learning opportunities. Although it has been nice having two weeks off, I am ready to get back to a normal routine...just in time for snow days. (Snow hits tonight followed by sub-zero temps)
2. Celebrating a new small group table. Before Christmas I received a new table for my classroom. I have not used it yet because the last two weeks of school were filled with assessment and holiday activities. I am super excited about this because it is so much bigger than what I had before. Can't wait!
3. Celebrating a new mounted projector. This year I have gone from my cart in the middle of my room (where no students can sit behind me) to the projector on a small desk and the cart off to the side, to the projector mounted on the celling. I can't believe how much more room I have now!
4. Celebrating heroes. My daughter has been a HUGE University of Tennessee fan since she a little girl. She hopes to coach basketball, and Pat Summitt is her hero and role model. She has attended many games and even met Pat in person. This week she returned to UT and snapped a picture next to the new statue of Pat which was dedicated this past fall. Everyone has to have a hero!
Have a great week and may you be blessed with many things to celebrate!
