I can't believe how different the weather can be within a 24 hour period! Seriously...yesterday it was almost summer-like. The sun was shining, everyone was out having fun and I told all my kids to go home and play outside! It was just gorgeous. Today, on the other hand, it is freeeeeezing and rainy. This is the kind of day where all you want to do is put on some fuzzy slippers and sit by the fire eating comfort food. Look who always has to jump up in my lap when I'm relaxing in my fuzzy slippers!
Today was our planning day at school. We have volunteers come sub for us in our classrooms and our second grade team spends the day planning together. It is such a nice day. And one of our moms brought us homemade chicken pot pie for lunch!
(That's perfect comfort food, right??) So nice!!
I am excited because I signed up today to take a photography class. I have been wanting to do that for a while and it was on my list of things I wanted to accomplish this year. One of my friends from high school, Whitney Gray, is an amazing photographer and she is offering classes, so I can't wait! I love my camera, but I never use all the features on it, so hopefully now I will figure out what they are all for!
Another thing that I am doing really soon is getting my archived blog posts made into a book! I am really excited about doing this and I found this site to help me. Do any of you have your blog made into a book? I used to love to scrapbook, but this is lots quicker and easier.
Did I tell you that Steve and I bought tickets to see James Taylor and Carole King? They are coming to Charlotte in June. I love both of them. Hearing their music just takes me back to my high school years. I have always thought they were both so talented and I think my blood pressure drops several notches when I listen to them! I am looking forward to that!
And I have to tell you one crazy story from school today. I told you it was planning day? Well, the teacher next door to me, Sarah, had a child take a pair of scissors while she was gone and cut a huge bald spot on the top of his head! They had to call his mom to come pick him up. I told Sarah that he would probably come to school tomorrow with a buzz cut. Sarah said, "No, he will probably come to school tomorrow BALD because he cut his hair all the way to his scalp!"
Kids do the craziest things!!! :)
