Today, my six year old daughters -- and I can only say that for another 12 more days -- brought home an ABC end of the school year countdown.

It starts on Thursday.  So that means there are only 28 more days left of school.

"You will only be first graders for 28 more days," I thought out loud.

Tears filled my eyes.

"Don't cry, Mommy," M. said as she held my face. "You are going to make me cry."

"I just can't believe it. You are almost ... I can't even say it ... second graders."

Big eyes stared my way.

"You don't understand now, but time just goes way too fast."

  1. Now, fast forward a few years, and imagine that senior in high school. That's what's coming for you. :) Love those early years, because too quickly, you have one daughter in college, and one daughter with 33 days left being a junior in high school.

    Time does just go way too fast. :)

    Thank you for your slice that gave me tears!

  4. As a mom I know what you mean. Looking at my 12 year old I wonder wasn't she just 6. And then the 20 and 21 year old come home and I simply do not comprehend how they grew up so fast. So what do you think our moms feel and think when they look at us - their daughters?

Today my husband celebrates a big, BIG birthday -- and I'm so lucky and thankful to have spent  the last sixteen years learning about everything that he loves the last (almost) twelve years learning about everything that I love about him the last (almost) five years learning with my daughters why we love our Daddy.

Picture Books: August 10 for 10

I love picture books.  No, you don't understand. I really L.O.V.E. picture books!

It is an obsession . . .  to read, to borrow, to purchase, to savor, to share, to read again     . . .  and again . .  . and again.  I need them.  I want them.  I have to have them!

That is why I had to participate in this event!  Cathy and Mandy are hosting August 10 for 10: The second annual picture book event.  They suggested to pick the 10 picture books that I can't live without in my classroom and library.  This is quite an undertaking, but I've got my favorites to share -- as of now -- in no particular order. I'm sure this list will be amended as I learn and read and fall in love with other favorite picture books.

But for now -- 
[drum roll please]
These are my go-to books.   My love-to-read-over-and-over books.   My just-can't-live-without-them books!

It's that time of year again! Cathy and I have finally selected our #cyberPD book for our summer learning. It's never an easy decision. 

Conversations go back and forth. 
Ideas fly. 
Standards are high. 
Book stacks full of possibilities are higher. 
And then ... it happens. 
The just right book emerges from the stacks.

The book selection is important, but what makes this PD event truly successful are the amazing teachers and educators across the globe that support each other through the learning process.


YOU make #cyberPD a success!
