That Teener came and went.
I'd like a late-night-cereal-in-bed-with-a-sister weekend more often.

March classroom

Story Map
I whipped this out pretty fast and I don't know why I hadn't made one sooner in my teaching career. It's so nice to have an easy visual when asking comprehension and sequencing questions.
story board

100 Art
We fill out this packet of 100 type questions. It's pretty entertaining to see what they come up with.

100 Years Old
First time doing 100 year old art. It was so funny. Those misshaped heads and fluffy hairs...Gets me good.

100 things on 100th Day
They brought 100 things in a brown bag, and we compared. Fun to see what they come up with.

Oh! And that red cup on their's filled with a trailmix style of treats. I bought 10 different snacks and they went through the line up and put 10 of each treat in their cup. (100 treats) They were big fans of that. Treats like mnm's, animal crackers, pretzels, mike n ikes, cheetohs, teddy grahams, marshmallows, and I forget what else.

"I feel lucky because...."
That graph paper clover was gruesome. I said that they couldn't have the same color next to each other. The small, restricting boxes were torture for some of them.

Taggart Lake:
We drove out to Teton National Park and strapped on our snowshoes. I couldn't believe the weather. We started shedding clothes about 15 minutes in. I wasn't even close to cold. No gloves! It was amazing. We stopped and ate carrot sticks and peanut butter filled pretzel nuggets and talked professions at the lake. We got a teacher, massage therapist, IT guy, and an almost nurse.

Mountain High Pizza:
that little baby pizza was $16!!! I was the mislead customer...all thinking it was limitless toppings. doh!

last supper
March 9-11 2o12
Jackson, WY

Road tripped after school on Friday. Arrived to a mansion with close friends, homemade chili and cornbread, and a neon dance party.

Saturday I woke up to a shadeless window and sun blasting through. Skiiers went skiing, and us snowshoers went snowshoeing to Taggart Lake.

Saturday afternoon was hot tub, steam room, sweat pants, and thai take out. It also involved Biggie Smalls and popcorn and mnm's.

Sunday morning was a sunrise I couldn't quit and a breakfast at Nora's before hitting the road jack.

Rolling into SLC was a like a big warm hug. Spring is upon us. Or at least faking us out.

kitchen magic-eleven

cooking class
Not our kitchen, but the new City Creek Harmon's in downtown Salt Lake! It's so pretty! We got pretty giggly about it.
Ellie and I signed up for Finding the Right Balance Every Meal class. After 3 hours, a very good meal, and learning lots from a talented chef I thought it was well worth the time and money. I want to sign up for Knife Skills, Fresh and Healthy Mexican, Spring Desserts, Sushi 101...
We were one short of our trifecta, missed you Brooke!
