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.
