It’s Saturday. Time to write about the good things in life and share at Ruth Ayres Writes.
Getting back to school. My snow wish came true, we had two snow days this week. Our Tuesday two-hour late became another day because our parking lot was treacherous (we don’t have to make it up as we were one of three schools in the same predicament). It was a pleasure returning to school even if only for two days as Friday was part of the Presidents’ Day weekend. February is a wacky month with Presidents’ Day weekend and conference. Throw in snow days, you wonder if you’ll ever get any teaching finished.
Co-workers who step in to help you out. My partner with the PRE-K story hour read the books for me this week due to an asthma flare-up and loss of voice. Truly a gift for me to not have to read.
The beginning of a three-day author visit with Susan Blackaby. Her latest book, BROWNIE GROUNDHOG AND THE WINTRY SURPRISE is the best. Susan will be working with students on where ideas come from and how to elaborate and find the just right word during her time with us.
I was invited to talk with students at another elementary school about my little haiku book,
SOLACE IN NATURE. Plus some of the bought my book!
What are you celebrating?
