It’s true; there’s no denying,
Another year has come and gone;
You know that I’m not lying.
So for you, the birthday person,

I hope this birthday’s the best one yet,
In every delightful way.
So happy birthday to you.

Grinch on ICE






My family plus Lee's girlfriend, my brother and SIL went to see the Grinch on Ice this past Saturday. It was amazing to see how large the sculptures were. On some of the info we got, it said that one block of ice weighed 370 lbs..now that heavy! There were over 1 million lbs on display. The natavity at the end was breath taking. Thanks for the new memories!!

PS...it was ONLY 9 degrees BuRRRRRRRRRRRR

What teachers make..



The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life. One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?" He reminded the other dinner guests what they say about teachers: "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach.
"To stress his point he said to another guest; "You're a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?"Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, "You want to know what I make? (She paused for a second, then began...) "Well, I make kids
work harder than they ever thought they could. I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor. I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can't make them sit for 5
without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental. You want to know what I make?" (She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table.) ''I make kids wonder. I make them question. I make them apologize and mean it. I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions. I teach them to write and then I make them write. Keyboarding isn't everything. I make them read, read, read. I make them show all their work in math. They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator. I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know in English while preserving their unique cultural identity. I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe. I make my students stand, placing their hand over their heart to say the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, One Nation Under God, because we live in the United States of America.
Finally, I make them
understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow
their hearts, they can succeed in life."(Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.) "Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant... You want to know what I make? I MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
What do you make Mr. CEO? His jaw dropped, he went silent.
