Tuesday Snapshots

I took a few pictures yesterday.  As I went out to get one of my students from recess, this was the view the kids had while playing:

And, as I left the school, I snapped this shot:
I got an email from a friend who said her initial thought was "How cute.  She thinks that's snow."  Of course, she lives out in Colorado, so she can't fathom that a dusting has the potential to cause delays and closures!

I have the luxury of having a smartboard in my room at my "new" school.  I'm not sure if it even works like it's suppose to.  I need to read the Dummy Book and see if I can figure it out!  This is what I used it for yesterday:
I try to make my life easier by doing the same activity for both schools, so one drawback to having a smartboard there and not at my "old" school is that I have to do a different activity there.  Which means more planning.  Okay, not really.  It just means pulling out another activity and having those students do something different.

We have a new obsession at my house:
Dark Chocolate is suppose to be good for you, and pomegranate and goji is full of antioxidants, so I'm not really eating candy, right?  I had never heard of "goji", but here's what wikipedia says:
Since the early 21st century there has been rapidly growing attention for wolfberries for their nutrient value and antioxidant content. They have been termed a superfruit, which has led to a profusion of consumer products.
So there you have it.

I thought today was this little girl's birthday:
 Her birth mother's owner had to shoot me down and let me know that her birthday is 12 March.  Turns out she shares a birthday with her Aunt, my SIL.  With her being such a diva and all, I think she's going to celebrate her birthday for at least a week.

So, this post turned into quite a fragmented post.  But, it's my blog and I can do what I want, right?  :)


  1. Beautiful views, Mary! Thanks for explaining that fruit. I've been seeing it a lot in the grocery stores and had no idea what it was.

  2. Have you tried the acai version of the chocolate yet? Yummy.

  3. My first thought at your photos was, "Wow! You have mountains!" I've never lived anywhere where mountains were a part of the everyday scenery so I'm fascinated with them. Smart boards also fascinate me since I've never used them (must be a bit of the teacher left in me still). I keep wanting to visit a school that has them so I can see how they work.

  4. Those are gorgeous views!
    All good divas spread their birthdays into a week or more. I'm just sayin'!

  5. I've gotten coupons for those dark chocolate superfruits & wanted to give them a try. Now you really make me want to give it a go!!!

    I always forgot my fur babies birthdays (4 dogs)... so I lump 3 of them together. I know they were all in August - so celebrate the 3 all on the same day. The other dog - I can always remember - 11-22-00 is her day. double digits

  6. Beautiful landscape. Those chocolates sound yummy!

  7. Those are some beautiful mountains! And no, I can't fathom dustings causing delays and closures. Although, I'm sure you get a fair amount of ice if the ground is wet before you start to get snow sticking. That is a whole different story. :)

  8. I'd never heard of Goji. I'll need to give that a try.

    Nothing wrong with a fragmented post ... most of mine are. ;-)
