You are the cutest dog, but you need to start behaving. Your daddy isn't crazy about you like Catherine and I are. He gets frustrated when you sneak things out of the pantry and get on the furniture. You know you aren't supposed to do those things because we can see your guilty expression when you get caught. I think we'll need to be a little more strict with you, so I hope you will learn. Even so, you are loved my furry friend, and we look forward to great walks this week.
Dear Sweet Catherine,
You are driving me crazy with your messiness, but you teach me at the same time. I love your creativity and endless energy, but it tires me out sometimes. I guess if people visit, they will understand all of your work in progress. You have taught me to never judge messy houses that's for sure! You remind me often of this saying:
It makes me so happy to hear your voice and know you are having fun. Your text messages mean a lot, and I look forward to quick notes even if they are short. I can't wait for Parent's Weekend. We are going to have so much fun with you. The house is not the same with you gone, but I am happy knowing you are happy.
Only a few more days until I get to meet you! I can not wait for you to find your home in my classroom this year, and I am filled with energy and excitement that I get more freedom to choose your curriculum this year. It will be nice to weave in time to build a love for reading and share some of my favorites with you this year. I hope you'll be inspired by Patricia Polacco, Gary Paulsen, Cynthia Rylant, Pam Munoz Ryan, and Kate DiCamillo. I can't wait to see which authors you love. Perhaps I'll get to add a few new ones to my list too. You have struggles with reading, and I promise to help you work those out. I'm looking forward to helping you be the best you you can be.
Thank you for being interested in what I share on my blog. I am humbled all the time, and I enjoy connecting with you. When I started this blog, I had visions of how I wanted it to be. It's not there yet, but I'm trying to improve it. I am working on adding activities to my page links. If you would like to share something that you think others would appreciate, feel free to email it to me. I am adding activities to the Word Study page first, but eventually, I'll add to the others. I think that will make the pages much more useful for me and you. If you love working with themes, be sure to come by Thursday to check out the posts about Space, and if you have themes you need help with, please let me know. Now, it's time for me to close. Have a fantastic week!
