Wow. What a week.Two major snowstorms.
One on Monday. One on Thursday, a blizzard that went into Friday.
And it was conferences week.
And we only had two days of school.
But there were things to
My friend Ruth Ayres has created a wonderful spot for sharing moments from your week. She even has a page to give you all the details you need to know about sharing your own celebrations. So head on over and see what everyone else is celebrating.
1. Well timed days off
We only had ONE snow day because we had Monday off for President's Day, so while other schools missed the day, we were already home! Because of conferences, Friday was a compensation day, so, again, we had the day off. Only Thursday ended up being a snow day. WooHoo! We have six days as it is to make up. We didn't need anymore!
2. Technology to the rescue
Our next speech contest is next Saturday. Missing all these days really hurts us. BUT, since we are a one to one school, all our kids have computers and most of them have internet. I've been practicing with some students via Facetime on our Macs. We set up a time through the Facebook page and PRESTO, rehearsal time!
3. Hints of Spring
Even though we are buried under tons of snow, the other day as I walked from my car to the school I noticed something important. THE SUN FELT WARM ON MY FACE. There was snow and the air was chilly, but the sun had warmth to it and that is something to cheer about.
So, there you are. A few of my things to celebrate this week. Be sure to hop on over to Ruth's blog and share yours!
