Enough color, light, and fun this week to keep those mid-February blues far, far away!
Ran to the grocery store the other morning, pulled into Safeway, parked the car and saw THIS! Good Morning, Pike's Peak! AMEN!
Dang. Lost my grip when carrying the wire basket that holds the scraper instruments in my classroom. The basket exploded into pieces, much to the horror of the children. It was an easy fix, but I'm pretty sure I traumatized them. :)
Ah, my stash has arrived. Eek. A make-it-yourself carrot cake package. Good grief. Think I'll be sticking to the fresh stuff.
The Denver Cupcake Truck came to Bethany this past weekend. Picture an ice cream truck - except WITH cupcakes and WITHOUT the evil ice cream truck music. They graciously donated 25% of all proceeds to Metro CareRing. A lot of money raised for an amazing food bank!
Whatcha HOLDEN there, Mr. GRACE? Cupcake boxes from The Denver Cupcake Truck? Yum! Hooray for Metro CareRing!
Choices, Choices! Sue Ann ponders... Vanilla Party or Denver Snowball?! The best choice? Buying a cupcake to support Metro CareRing!
Pre-orders were picked up inside while BLC members lined up outside to purchase their yummy treat!
The Truck has arrived, the cupcakes are here! It’s time to collect some sweet treats for your dear! What?! No more cupcakes?!? Even the geese wanted in on the cupcake action this past Sunday! Sorry, guys….SOLD OUT!
(Yes, I'm in the middle of the snowbank in my heels. What can I say, they were funny little geese, lining up for their picture! In the next 5 seconds, they turned and flew directly AT ME. Not funny anymore!)
Oh, happy day. Frogs, cupcakes AND cheese that Sarah brought back from WisCONsin. BOOYA!
Laughed out loud when I downloaded this week's photos.
Only in Colorado could both 14 BELOW ZERO and...
...65 DEGREES ABOVE ZERO occur in the same week!
Adult Learning in February: Faith Formation Classes with Pr Ruth Ann, using the text "Frogs Without Legs Can't Hear" by David Anderson and Paul Hill. Great stuff for ALL ages!
Do you have any idea how much fun you can have when your theme is FROGS!?
Let's begin with the obligatory student quote, shall we: "Ms. G, what have you done now!?"
So I have this really fun Cheesehead drink holder. I thought it might make an awesome bracelet. It does NOT make an awesome bracelet. It makes children laugh when you get it stuck on your wrist, however.
I'm playing the piano during 2nd grade, and all I hear behind me is "Put it back! Put it back!"followed by"I can't! You do it!" I whip around to find them struggling over (and trying to hide) the fallen letters "I" and "C" of MUSIC ROOM. "Ms. G, we dropped the music. We're so sorry."
This mini-cheeseheadmakes for a MUCH better bracelet.
Check out the light in this photo! Tons of snow overnight, which always makes the 24 mile drive between home and church oh so exciting. Oy. My Santa Fe is a lovely little vehicle, thankfully. One, big long prayer up the highway!
The little ones singing their hearts out - such cherubs!
Spronk! Don't mess with his SOUP.
Andrea (Mrs. Spronk) and Beatrice Brenda. Yes, her middle name is Brenda. No, my middle name is not Beatrice.
