Tuesday, a surprise visit from a little one who excitedly exclaimed "Abuela!" as soon as she recognized our lane. She also knows the difference between abuelo and abuela! (That's more than some of my students at this point.) Rebecca doesn't know to stay still for a photo, though!

|Happy birthday, Kayla!|
Zion excitedly welcomed his abuelas on Friday for Grandparents Day. There was so much he wanted to show us and we were so impressed with all that he is learning and doing.
I was especially interested in how the writing process is taught already in first grade.
Right next to that display is a wall with Wow Words. When they come across one in their reading they place the new "wow word" by the appropriate letter of the alphabet. For example he pointed out: T--thrilling.
The crowd of doting grandparents were thrilled with the music performance by the 80 some first graders.
When I arrived back home, the driveway refinishing crew was busily wrapping up their morning work.
I made the mistake of parking on the steepest side of the road. When I tried to drive out later, I discovered that I was stuck, bottomed out. Michael and the mailman, who happened by at that time, came to my rescue and towed me out.
Another proud grandparent moment was the recognition of all Delta seniors and their accomplishmnets before the Friday night football game.
