Celebrate This Week: Purging, Promoting, and Sharing Pics!

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.  Made significant progress on the boxes in the garage
I donated two boxes of books to a friend's niece who is a second year teacher.  
I gifted a box of 80's vintage clothing to the thrift shop.  
I got rid of twelve years of teacher plan books.
I purged personal files from thirty plus years ago.
consolidated two boxes of keepsakes into one box.
I said goodbye to a box of Riverbank Review and Bookbag magazines.
 2.  Spent two mornings proctoring tests for our high cap and advanced math placements
That doesn't seem like much to celebrate EXCEPT that I took advantage of meeting students
new-to-me and new-to-the-district to to promote Books, Brownies & Beyond, our after school 
book club.  I set up a display of books for them to peruse as they waited for parents to pick them up and handed out the blog address for our book club. 
3.  Took this pic on a walk
4.  Snapped this pic in my front yard
5.  Received this pic of son & grandson at Saturday brunch
I hope you've had a week filled with large and small moments to celebrate.
Thanks, Ruth, for this opportunity to celebrate together.

  3. I would love to have seen your 80's clothing! Vintage makes me feel old! I can't believe how fast your little guy is growing! Adorable!

  4. Wow, Teddy is growing up already! You're inspiring me to keep going with that purging, Ramona. Congrats on those deeds done! And I do love the flower pics. Your Seattle area has the most wonderful flowers! Have a great day!
