Show and Tell

Happy Monday. Happy new year. Happy... oh, who am I kidding!?!

I would be happier if it were last year, the first day of winter break! Truly, I don't see how it's possible that those days are behind us, already. I still have lots to show and tell from our wonderful two week break, but this morning I need to remind myself of all the good, happy, and worthwhile things that Maria will enjoy about today, and all the school days up to June.

Ah, June. Sweet, sweet June.

Too soon for a summer break countdown?

Maria will be happy researching, and writing reports. She likes her teachers, and the subjects taught.

Happy in the school garden, and kitchen. Maria loves her school's gardening, and cooking classes, which fit quite nicely into her life plans.

I love hearing about her life plans.

Happy for art time, and class parties, for soccer playing, Karate, yoga, science, Spanish, reading, and friends.

Especially friends.

So, Happy Monday!

Oh... hold on... what the ******!?!

Thermafail 2000, why?

Great. My SuperMom plans to bake a marvelous treat for the Monday-back-to-school-good-grief-it's-cold-and-dark-early breakfast are foiled. No oven. Again.

Hey, Thermafail 2000, I'm not wild about a cold, wet, dark Monday, after a lovely holiday, but you don't see me shutting down, do you!?!

Oy! OK, let's try again and make this a Therma-sucess:
"...Warm thoughts heading your way from NYC, where it will be 50 degrees on Wednesday..."

I'll bet Maria's life plans are awesome. I am loving her story about Gardener the Snowman!
