Celebrate 5/24

Join this fabulous group of bloggers as we celebrate our weeks. You can link up on Ruth Ayres blog at

This week was a super busy week and felt so long!  I have lots of little things to celebrate this week.  

Here is what I am celebrating:

A surprise retirement at my school which opens up a 4th grade position for me to take...the answer to some prayers about what to do next year.  ***Throws Confetti*** 

A beautiful day for the neighborhood clean-up project with our student council and the amazing middle schoolers who put in their time to do this service.  

Some great poetry performances at our parent night. 

Watching the 2013 version of Romeo and Juliet with students who have really enjoyed this unit and analyzing the movie and the way the story was adapted for this version.  So much deep thinking! 

Pizzas for my students who had earned a class incentive. The way that these students know how to be appreciative of the things I give them.  

A change in dosage of the injections I do which makes it a 3-times-a-week injection rather than a daily injection.  

A return to running and some successful walk/runs as I follow the program for Couch to 5K. 

Beautiful weather for a nice long holiday weekend! 

What do you have to celebrate this week?  I would love to hear from you in the comments.  Have a spectacular week!


  1. So happy for your answers to prayer, but I'm sad that middle schoolers are losing you. Poetry performances - definitely something to celebrate. I've been wondering if I could get a few students to perform poetry at our 6th grade talent show. Glad you're down to fewer injections. You found much to celebrate this week!

  2. Teaching 4th grade should be fun! Congrats on finding that position! And big congrats on your run/walk program. I haven't been exercising consistently over the past 3 wks. Really have to prioritize that this week. I hate getting out of shape because I hate getting BACK in shape so much!! Have a wonderful week!

  3. 4th grade really? So exciting for you! It looks like I am taking my 2/3/4 into a 3/4 - heavy 4s. Haven't taught a mostly 4 in a long time And I look forward to it. We can compare notes!

  4. So happy about your new position, Andrea. That's wonderful. And fun/celebration at school is fun, you know I believe that! Glad also to hear about your change in injections, a good change it seems. Have another good week!
