The Last Year: Change, Pep Assemblies, and Living It All
More last year blogging...come on you know you LOVE it. Well, I love it and it's my blog!!
We have a new principal. Remember the 14 in 30 years. Well WHY does number 14 have to have so much energy...right when I have so little? I mean back in those kindergarten years... dressing up and doing zany days....why I LIVED for that! Ha, if it had been green and white day I could have dressed up like the Grinch. Well, our colors are RED and WHITE so I had to come up with something a little wacky.
This awesome inspiration came to be at 5:00 am on the morning of the pep assembly. I thought I need to ask my friend for the fur leggings she wore for Madonna Mania!! I entered school with the black and red and got "attacked" immediately. Well, attacked is a little harsh but they yelled at me..."red and white". I said "back off Bs...I'm heading down to get the rest of my outfit!!"

I'm trying to "live it all" even when I feel some internal resistance. Not resistance because I am negative just because after 30 years of it...it's just lost a little sparkle. I'm still excited about life but in a different way. I must report though that the kids loved the awesome-ness of my fur legs and all the sixth graders kept wanting to touch them...weird....but it makes me laugh!
Now just one question: "Do I HAVE to do pajama day Monday?" A whole week of wackiness might be more than I can bear at this point. (just kidding).

We headed down to Klondike Park for our first hike of 2018. The beautiful weather called us to a little adventure and even though it was a m...
Have you ever wondered about life? The path you are walking, the memories that compose you? I've read books, I've written sporadical...
