My favorite part of the week. Celebrations.
I've been celebrating my week for a long time, almost as long as I've written my blog. It helps keep me positive and focused on the right things in my life. I keep track of them through the week on a post-it in my bullet journal. And Twitter. If something makes me smile during the school day, I often tweet it out.

I've done quite a bit of tweeting this week (you know that if you follow me at @mrsday75). On Saturday, my Speech kids performed at district competition. They did great. We've sixteen events moving on to state next weekend. My favorite part of individual speech competition is giving my phone to the kids and telling them to take a selfie. Then, as they perform and receive ratings, I can share out the results using our school hashtag. People follow along all day and congratulate the kids.
Other good things this week:
- I received copies of Passenger and Wayfarer from Alexandra Bracken this week. She had tweeted out she would send copies to classrooms if teachers tweeted her, so I did. I have several kids who will love this series
- Our girls basketball team played in the state tournament on Tuesday. They didn't win, but a smaller school from a few miles away did. They ended up runner-up. I loved how many of our kids went to their games and cheered them on. When you live in a small rural area, everyone is friends.
- Last practices with my speech kids. These last two weeks of rehearsal time is precious to me. I just love hanging out with these guys.
- A friend started a new food blog. This woman is a great cook and she decided to start a blog and share the recipes she trying. You can check her out at The Pinterest Foodie
Well, that's about it this week. Hope your week was wonderful!
