3rd grade hall

We partied the last day of school!
 Can't you tell by their faces?  They're excited for 4th grade!
I really did have a very sweet and good class.  So cute and friendly!
 This little girl stole my heart.  I wanted to take her home every day.
{Please note that I am on my knees; she's Polly Pocket size.  Also note the bare and boxed classroom; I'm ready to move as soon as I get the call my new classroom is clean and empty.}
 So long, room 73!  You were good to me.
 My team.  {Me, Rachel, Danika, and Kalani}  I could not have been blessed with better people to work with.  Honestly,  Danika and Kalani are the best!!!
Canyon 3rd grade hall, you've been fun!

sweet read

I loved this book.

A dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery. An upscale art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel. A gutsy woman with a stubborn dream. A story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it.
It begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana . . . and an East Texas honky-tonk . . . and, without a doubt, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda . . . an upscale New York gallery . . . a downtown dumpster . . . a Texas ranch.
Gritty with pain and betrayal and brutality, this true story also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.

{Instead of writing book quotes down, I just snap a picture as I'm reading.}

It was such a sweet story of people changing their lives for the better.

{She's still a Cougar at heart.}

 {Of course I wore some blue to represent where our true alliance lies.}

Awesome job, Jefe!  Love ya!
