Only in Atlanta!

Only in Atlanta could it be snowing and in the teens and then 4 days later in the 70's. They say if you don't like the weather here, wait around and it will change in a few hours. Whoever they are have been right on target this year. I really like winter, but I don't like it winter one day and summer the next day. With weather like this no wonder so many people are sick. We had 12 kids sent home yesterday after they had "been sick in the hallway". I felt for our custodians. Today we celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday, I know his birthday was really on Monday, but our school decided to celebrate today. I am exhausted. I read Barthelemew and the Oobleck too many times, and made entirely too many batches of Oobleck. For those of you that aren't around kids too much, Oobleck is made from water, food coloring and cornstarch. Kids love it!! The big question always is, is it a solid or a liquid. At least it is Friday, and I can rest up. We are headed to the cabin in the morning and will be back on Sunday. I have Block 3 of the Bunny Hill Basket series to work on and will hopefully finish it this weekend. Have a great weekend everyone.

Hope you have a great weekend at the cabin and get to do anything that you want. I must ask Sarah about that oobleck stuff. I need to go read that book. She was all excited about Dr. Seus last weekend

I am originally from the same town as Dr. Seuss, and I went to the same high school he did, but many years later. I just love all things Seuss!
