Lucky for me, my plan was to take the girls to see the musical Madagascar.

Lucky for me, I found out their classes were planning to go too.

Lucky for me, I found out before I purchased tickets.

Lucky for me, chaperones were needed. 

Lucky for me, I was selected to chaperone.

Lucky for me, it was scheduled for the day before spring break.

Lucky for me, I was approved to go.

Lucky for me, I got to be a mom today, not the teacher.

Lucky for me, it was an amazing musical production.

Lucky for me.

Slice of Life hosted at the Two Writing Teachers Join in and share a slice of your life.
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.

Happy, happy 40th birthday Jon!

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.

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.

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.
