the #celebratelu this week at her blog
Last day of pre-school PSR Celebration. We've been getting up early on Sundays to get ready for pre-school PSR (religion class) to learn about God. The children each received a certificate of completion from their teachers. Natalie adored them and is disappointed that we're finished with class until next year.
The Baseball Parade around the city's circle! It was so special-I could not stop smiling as Natalie was singing to anyone who would listen, "I love my city! My city is awesome!" over and over. I bubbled and bubbled with giggles, smiles and happy eyes...
Monday-The Inter-generational band concert between the Hudson Middle School 8th grade band and New Horizons (the band my husband joined to learn how to play the bass). He's still going strong and making progress. The music joyfully blended as the two bands joined together conducted by an instructor from Baldwin Wallace College. So moving. I gave them a standing ovation. They sounded amazing even though they practiced together only once...
Tuesday-Another T-ball game for Nattie. It was freezing cold at game time and part of the field was under water. Despite the cold and mud, the kids had a ball doing their thing. It was quite a hoot to watch the little guys and gals playing together...3 innings of joy!
Wednesday-Evening work time with my friend Rosemary. We designed a framework and curriculum for a summer ELL K-2 reading program that will take place at two of the buildings in the district for 8 weeks. Looking forward to training the teachers and seeing the fruits of our work at the end of summer.
Thursday-I attended a meeting at the middle school to learn about going 1-to-1 with Chromebooks for next year. The teachers had an example of a Google Classroom Stream with various assignments. I learned about some new tools-Thinglink, EDPuzzle, and Gizmos. Have you heard of these? I am looking forward to seeing more. I know Kam will be engaged with lots of interesting learning projects next year.
Friday-I celebrated after work with some friends. My happiest moment ended in playing dollies with Natalie. She picked up her two friends and asked me to play. We had conversation around the two friends going out and seeing a movie, pretend laughing at the theater, and walking home together when the movie ended. It was so cute...I know I fell asleep with a smile on my face thinking about the joy she brings me.
Whew! T-ball again today-wondering if the game will be cancelled...stay tuned. Celebrating joy in the time to write and reflect on a busy week.
