I hope everyone had a lovely long weekend! Ours was filled with sunny lake days, home cooked meals, glorious fireworks, baby kisses (love my nieces!), groggy afternoon naps, & belly laughs. My face is slightly more freckled & my body is rested & ready to hit the ground running again today… back to teaching kids math!
Lately I have been trying to mix up my teacher wardrobe of skirts & cardigans with funky pants & fun jewels.

True story - one of my Summer School 3rd graders told me that when I wore bold prints, all my prancing around at the front of the room made him dizzy… guess that is why you have your eyes on the board & not on my pants kids!
