I'm celebrating each Saturday or Sunday with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. Come join in to share your own special celebrations.
For those of you who returned to your classrooms this week, I hope it was a good time back, re-uniting, making new plans for learning, enjoying the community all over again. I missed the good part, but must say I didn't miss the early rising/getting out the door at 7am. I am enjoying the quiet being at home/after Christmas/New Year start. Most Christmas things are put away, but I keep out what we used to call our kitchen tree. It sat on a shelf in the kitchen at my old house. It will stay until February hearts take its place.It was a good week of quiet celebrations. One of which I don't have a photo of is that I've been invited to join a book group by a former colleague, some other former colleagues and some new people, too. It was a wonderful evening taking time to talk about a book and listen to others share their ideas, too. I will love this time.
I was at school this week for a short while, and had the pleasure of seeing a former student, now nearly finished with college! What a pleasure it was to hear her enthusiasm with her passions, and she spoke of our time together as still under-pinning her learning. It made me feel so good.
Here are a few photos of good things to celebrate during this past week!

I've wanted to subscribe to The New Yorker for a long time,
sometimes I bought one, but now I will find time to read them!
