Recent outings and readings and and and.

Our date to the Rose Garden on Labor Day. Sometimes when I take pictures, I cut off the top of Joel's head.
Somebody's been working out.


Date night at Caribou. My stack of professional literature is growing exponentially.
Deep in thought...maybe about NC State football?

I am aware that it has been 1 million years since I have updated. I actually don't use a computer at home during the week at all, and when I take my computer home on the weekend, I only use it on Saturday mornings.

School is going really well. It didn't take long for me to fall in love with this class. I am finding myself a little overwhelmed with the stack of books I have chosen to read...Writer's Workshop books, Reader's Workshop books, assessment guides. Sometimes I forget that there are only 24 hours in the day. I've decided to save my novels for the beach.

Currently, I'm really excited for fall. Apples, pumpkins, boots, fall leaves, still my beating heart. To celebrate, last week my class worked with a super cute poem about fall, and we're all wearing plaid on Tuesday. I figured that was a weird/fun way to celebrate autumn's arrival. Friday, we're going to have our first writing celebration as we publish How-Tos, and I'm pretty excited about the scrabble edition Cheez-its for snack. So cute.

I think it's time to go shopping for fall today. I'll let you know.
