I had an open house at school last night, so I didn’t come home until late. I still beat Mom and Aunt Marlys. They went to Lahaina with Ed and Jo, and were still not back when I got home.

There were two kinds of notes on the counter when I got home. The first was this:

Hehe… It was just the “input” button. It had been switched to “antenna”, and wasn’t showing any picture. It was easily fixed.

The second thing on the counter was birthday cards – one from Ed and Jo, and one from Debbie. They were so fun! And Debbie sent some decals! Cool! I’ll have a hard time deciding where to put them.

Happy Rainbow Day

Ed and JoAnn arrived safely yesterday! Yay! I’m still in school today 🙁

After meeting them at the airport, we got them to their hotel, then went out to eat. It was so fun to hang out and have good food.

I didn’t take any pictures of us together, so here’s a picture I took during our PE period yesterday at school. It’s been raining a lot the last few days, but it got sunny in the morning. Rain plus sun equals rainbow. Rainbows happen a lot here.

See the faint double rainbow?

Cupcake Critique

Yesterday kids brought LOTS of treats. In my classroom, it was mostly candy. Kids from other classes kept coming by with cupcakes …so many cupcakes.

I only ate one cupcake yesterday, but it was AMAZING! One of my homeroom students brought in cupcakes that were white cake with a whole Oreo baked into the bottom and Oreos crumbled on top. I think it may have been the most delicious cupcake I’ve ever had. The cake part was sweet and tasty. The frosting was creamy and had a slight tang to it.

I was making a lot of noises and comments while I ate it. The girl who brought it smiled and said that she had made them. Wow! I told her she should open her own bakery.

I ate a lot of it before I thought of taking a picture.

Happy Valentines Day! Or should I say Happy Ash Wednesday? Wait… do people ever say “Happy Ash Wednesday”? Also – Happy Birthday to my nephew Daniel! Yay! Happy Birthday to Samith! Yay!

Earlier this week, I got together and chatted with the 8th and 6th homeroom teachers, and we decided not to have Valentine’s Day parties. But the kids will be bringing in treats and perhaps regular old valentines.

I was at the grocery store yesterday and decided I would get valentines for my homeroom. They had Star Wars! Yay! They even come with pencils! Yay!

It was The Force Awakens, but still...

An Extended Birthday

My mom and my Aunt Marlys are here! Yay! They arrived yesterday afternoon. We went to my place, then went out to eat, then went to bed early. A perfect evening!

They brought along an extra suitcase filled with birthday presents from Lloyd, Lauren, and Beth. Yay! Thanks, guys! It is all awesome!

Lloyd and Lauren had just recently been to IKEA, so I got an IKEA gift bonanza.

So many cool things with weird-sounding names.

Beth sent something I had forgotten about. I saw them in the thrift store in Seward. I wanted them so badly, but just couldn’t bring myself to buy them. Beth got them! Woo hoo!

Can you see the engraving?

Can you see the engraving?

They are a set of glasses engraved with the heraldic lion. So… cool… I have no idea what I’ll do with them, but whatever it is, I will be super-cool while doing it.
