Well, we went to the Pine Wood Derby tonight. I am sad to report that we placed dead last. But I am not really SAD at all. Ian was fine with it. In fact, when I asked him what were going to do next year, he said a candy machine. He is such a nut. Love that kid to pieces.

Today was fair. I did get to chat with Mrs. E for all of about 3 minutes this morning. I miss visiting with my virtual author friend. If you haven't met her yet, you need to visit her blog. She just released her second book in her Junior Detective Squad Series. I love the books. Interactive in pictures and text. Quick reads for most upper grade kids, which is also very appealing. Go HERE to meet her and check out the new book. I have already ordered mine! When you do get your copy, check out the acknowledgments page. :) GO Mrs. E, We are cheering you on! If you want her to come and visit your school, you can also arrange that (in person if you are close to her home, or virtually through your computer which is how she visits MY class. Well worth the investment to be sure).

Well, time marches on. My students took their first CORE test today. I feel they did very well. We will soon know. After they finish the science sections tomorrow, their results should be in my hands within 24 hours. Exciting, yet scary!

I better head to the TV for the weather update and then off to bed. Goodnight out there in BLOG land.



  1. You are too kind. I do miss our chats and even miss coming into the class as things are getting crazy. You have really helped me from a teacher's standpoint as to what the kids are really enjoying for my presentations and what I need to work on. Your copies are in the mail so you should have them hopefully by the end of the week or first part of next week. I look forward to a day when we can chat and make plans for the upcoming school year and all.

    Good luck to the students; hope they all are at or above the standards and that your class does very well. Chat soon - E :)

    PS - don't forget the actual blog - http://jgdsseries.blogspot.com - see you all in the postings - E :)

  2. Hey John, I am putting my blog into private and I realized that I don't have your e-mail address to add you. Please e-mail it to me so that you can continue to access all of the wonderful things I have to say. Ok just kidding, but I still need your address thanks!
