I'm glad Sofi had one more day of play with mommy.
I wanted to share some of the photos we took at The Peggy Noteabart Nature Museum yesterday. We had the place all to ourselves.
Sofi had so much fun. She got to sort shells and rocks.

I also have a class of 25 second graders who are anxiously awaiting my arrival. I don't want to let them down and I am planning some fun activities to build our class community. It's like starting the year all over again in January! I have to get to know them and they have to get to know me. It's exciting and it will be exhausting but I am humbled at the opportunity to be there and learn with them as well.
I started this blog not only to record my daily observations as a second grade bilingual public school teacher but also to record the growth in language development of my own children. I've spent a lot of time learning and taking some classes in Early Childhood Development and I really need to record what I observe. I am even thinking of quitting my 16 year career as an inner city teacher. Early Intervention needs more Developmental Therapists and it's something that I am definitely interested in. For now, I'm going to hang in there for another year or two.
