Some cheer

Suffice it to say, the last 2 weeks of school have been absolutely awful. Problems with kids, bigger problems with parents, observation by my principal, night-time commitments (PTO meeting and arts night)....I'm wiped out!

But tonight, I decided to cheer my place up and put up my Christmas decorations! After the initial shock, who put that box all the way up there??? I got to work. I must say, it is feeling pretty festive around here!

Kali loves to hide and play in the tree!












Many of my ornaments are gifts I've received from students. This one (on the right) is a favorite....not only is it beautiful, but I always remember the student giving it to me telling me, "my parents probably spent a fortune on this!" So, despite the blue theme of my tree, there are many ornaments with a red or "apple" theme.

Your place looks so festive! Your colors and chaise-lounge type chair/sofa thing (what do you call it??) look ever so inviting.

Your favorite ornament is beautiful. I got so many from students in the past, but they were not usually as keepable as this one - but don't tell anybody I said that, okay?)

Happy holidays!
