Well, I’ve had another episode of accidental copyright infringement. I searched for a nice picture of the Paramount Theatre for my post and didn’t realize it was copyrighted. So, I’m giving up posting pictures at the beginning of my blog 😦 because I’m tired of breaking the rules by accident and getting a stern letter.
This week, we did very little. We had 3 half-days while the upper school was taking finals, and I ended taking grades last Friday. So, we mostly practiced for our standardized test–the ITBS– and had fun. One of my students’ mom came to do a craft with us on Monday, and on Wednesday we had an end-of-the-semester party complete with juice, chips, cookies, and candy. It will not be a great surprise to you to find out that after about 15 minutes of indoor partying, we thought it best to let the munchkins outside to run off their excitement.
I got some fabulous Christmas gifts from my kids including: a snowman candle holder, a snow man/Santa salt and pepper shaker set, a winter owl mug, a big box of candy (you got it right, kid!), and a bracelet from Pakistan (very neat!). I’m not much of a “things” person (except from chocolate and jewelry from foreign lands), but the cards and notes that came with the gifts really brightened my heart.
