Reflection

I can’t believe today is the last day of #sol19! I feel March flew by! This month I tried to just live in the moment for my slices. As opposed to planning out my slices as I have in the past. This year I wanted to really focus on the world around me. Even the small things I otherwise may not give a second thought. SOL is such an awarding experience. Not just writing everyday for all thirty-one days, but reading other slices and gaining ideas from other slicers. I love being in this amazing writing community! Building connections and learning from fellow slicers is priceless! Thank you Two Writing Teachers!

What a

Rewarding and

Incredible experience

Thankful to be

In this community

Now I have new ideas and

Grew as a writer!

#SOL19 is my fourth year participating! I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to connect with incredible writers! This community brings me so much joy and inspiration! Thank you TWT for this amazing community of writers!

April

I can’t believe April will be here on Monday! I will be welcoming April with open arms. Not only because of the warmer weather and spring rains which bring beautiful flowers (not to mention closer to summer), but there is so much more to enjoy too! I have so much to look forward to! It will be a busy, but fun and rewarding month!

I am looking forward to…

Writing poems with my Kindergarten writers! Love celebrating National Poetry Month!

Going to a baptism. My nephew is getting baptized! I look forward to spending time with family especially this cutie!

Going to a Phillies game with our favorite people! Great company, baseball, ballpark food, the Phillie Phanatic…what else could you ask for? Well…a win would be fantastic! Go Phillies!!!

Reading the book, How Do Dinosaurs Learn How to Read?, at our Dino-mite Family Literacy Night!

Watching our favorite girl at her Middle School guard show!

Running in my first 5K! It is the Cherry Blossom 5K in Philadelphia. Looking forward to all the beautiful sights as well as finishing my first 5K!

Having Spring Break! It is really late this year and teachers and students are both in need of a break! It can’t come soon enough!

Going to a bowling fundraiser to support our friends (more like family). It is their annual bowling fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis. It will be our 6th year!

New Toys

While at Target we didn’t leave without some new toys for our babies. Lately, have been throwing many away due to being very old and worn. Many chewed through. I cut off all the tags. Ginger immediately took the penguin I gave her and began playing. Put an instant smile on my face since she doesn’t play with toys like she used to. She’s 10 years old, but Rylee, almost 10 months, keeps Ginger’s puppy side alive (maybe for 5 minutes, but hey better than laying around)! Rylee enjoyed her monster I gave her. For a short time, Ginger and Rylee even were enjoying their new toys side-by-side!😊 Love my girls and happy they enjoyed their new toys!💜🐾

Opening Day

A sea of red and white.

Vendors screaming, “Get your hot dogs and peanuts here!”

Happy fans cheering.

Crowd singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”.

The Phillie Phanatic making everyone laugh.

SMACK! Ball meeting the bat.

Not at opening day today, but still wearing my Phillies gear!

Go Phillies!!!!

I’m looking forward to all these things on April 8th though!

Nice Start

Short slice today about the start to my day…

One of my girls came over to me after she unpacked her book bag this morning with a smile from ear to ear to give me something she made for me. It was 2 dogs, one black and one brown (Rylee and Ginger). She was so proud and excited to give them to me. So very sweet to think of me and my dogs while not at school! Of course, I hung them up right away. What a nice start to the day!

Never Ending

The work is always never ending with not enough time in a day!!!

Report cards✅

Parent-Teacher Conferences ✅

You would think I could breathe now.

More free time.

WRONG!

Still running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

At the end of the day things to do didn’t stop.

Just need to cut these words out.

Just need to finish grading these papers.

Just need to finish creating this permission slip.

Time to go. Rest will be there tomorrow.

Already a lot later than I wanted to stay.

Get out to parking lot…

Pretty much empty!

Maybe tomorrow I won’t be one of the last ones to leave.

Spring Is…

My Kindergarten writers created Spring poems after we discussed Spring in Science. I love seeing what Spring means to 5 and 6 year olds! What does Spring mean to you?
