Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.
When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember.
1. Organized classrooms
One of the benefits of retirement and subbing is the opportunity to be in many different classrooms. Although we haven't started school yet, I've been doing some testing this past week. I love these labeled supply cubbies. I would have loved one of these organizers when I was teaching.
2. Author generosity
I recently commented to Kirby Larson on Facebook that the ARC of Liberty (that I received from Island Books for our after school book club) was snatched up at one of our summer meetings. Look what arrived in my mailbox this week from Kirby!
I plan to finish it soon and then ship it to OK for my niece's 4th grade classroom. There's something very special about getting to read a book before the actual publication date.
3. A view of Mt. Rainer
Sometimes the weather and the flight paths cooperate and I can see Mount Ranier as I leave Seattle.
4. Teddy time while Stefi enjoys a girls' day out
My daughter-in-law was able to take advantage of my visit to spend some time with her girlfriends. We enjoyed chocolate chip pancakes (Blake's favorite breakfast), a Costco run,
and lots of time to visit with Teddy. Here's a pic of him in Dad's lap,
chatting with me this morning.
Smiles for Grandma!
A serious moment!
A satisfied moment!
