Happy Birthday to my niece Rachel! Yay!
Yesterday was my usual grading day, but it was also unusual, because I was grading five paragraph essays that the eighth graders wrote. They took FOREVER to grade. Fortunately, I also had a reward for myself for when I finished them: I brought some plants to put in the un-manicured area behind my classroom.
I was at Walmart on Saturday, and saw puakenikeni trees for sale. I was so excited, because when I was in http://bradaptation.com/2013/05/07/fagraea-berteriana/ Maui in 2013, a student brought me a puakenikeni flower, and ,one hesitates to use superlatives because life is long and the world is big, but I think it is the best-smelling flower I’ve ever met. I bought three. I would love for them all to survive, but if even just one does, I’ll be happy.
