Celebrate This Week!

                              Join us each weekend for Celebrate this week with Ruth Ayres.  
 When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build.
  A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!

1.  My poem arrived from the Silver Star Poetry Project.  This year's poem has a special connection for me.  "What Does Pompeii Know?"  is perfect for me, since I used to teach Social Studies with a focus on ancient civilizations.  Thanks, Brook Lynn for a poem that captures all the grief that Pompeii must have felt. 

2.  Book club members surprised the students at 6th grade lunch with baskets of poems they had chosen, rolled, and tied for sharing.  It was fun to see their excitement.  Once I hear from all the parents, I'll be back to post some pictures.  

3.  I'm continuing to bask in springtime!  It's been an incredible spring for us with many sunny, warm days perfect for walking with friends.  I even opened the windows one day this past week.  I love when the cool, fresh air from outside fills my home.


  1. Wow, what a tree! I love the idea of rolled poems as gifts.

  2. Was just going to tell you about the link, too, Ramona. Sounds like a wonderful poetry week! And of course, love those flower pics! Thanks!

  3. Great to have the link so I could read your post. I also got a postcard from the Silver Star Poetry Project. It was so much fun to have it come in the mail. I have to thank Jone. Poetry baskets and photos of spring-wonderful! ARe one of those pics going into Spring's Symphony?

  4. Those photos are breathtaking! Spring is glorious! I enjoyed reading about your celebrations this week - I always thought Pompeii was fascinating!
