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.
