It's finally here!

Here's to summer!

Dave and I went out to La Quinta
for a few days, and soaked up the sun.
It was fabulous!

Here's to summer sun and fun!

Kids can change the world!

Please take a look at my friend Sarah's audition for Oprah's show and place a vote for her. This is a great concept for getting kids involved in community service!

You can vote as often as you'd like!  Sarah and I used to teach together, and she started a non-profit organization to empower kids to change the world --- Whatever it Takes.  Her organization is called WitKids, and my students did a bunch of projects during the school year.  You can learn more about WitKids by visiting her website,     If you click on the Blog button, you can scroll down to "Westwood WitKids 2009-2010" and see a video tribute to my students.  : )
Now, go vote for Sarah's video!

Summer. Is. Almost. Here!!!

Only TWO more days of school left.
Monday, the 5th graders have their Promotion ceremony.
Tuesday, they have games & a picnic.


We don't have anything major planned; no big trips.
But just having time to sleep in will be a luxury!

First up on my list of "to do" is to redo our master bedroom.
Move furniture around.
Probably new curtains.

Next is to read.  A lot.  The pile of books I have stacked on my headboard.
And the new book my friend Sarah lent me, The Help.

And visit friends I don't see most of the year, because I'm too busy
with all of the school stuff.  Can't wait to start making our "lunch dates."

Only two. more. days.
