ten things tuesday

1) I'm looking forward to the hot air balloon festival this weekend--I hope the weather is nice, I want to go to the evening balloon glow.

2) My goal is to get my lesson plans written up to Harvest Break.

3) I'm anxious about Dad's health.  I want him to get back to his regular routines.


5) I'm inspired by people who walk the talk.  Like Jimmy Carter.

6) My joyful memory is when I made a friend laugh so hard she peed her pants when we were at recess.  I think we were in first or second grade.

7) Dear Self,
       Try not to feel too overwhelmed at this beginning of the school year.  You've got this!  And the correcting will eventually be done.  So far the kiddos are responding well.  You've got this!!

9) I love the bands: U2, The Beatles, Maroon 5, Jason Mraz, Sting, John Mayer, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder, Queen, Billy Joel, Pink, Madonna--I guess that's it for now.
