Well, I recovered from my Sunday night blues. It was a little iffy there this morning (like when the alarm went off and I actually had to GET OUT OF BED) but they went away when I saw my kids on the playground. Apparently, they missed me. At least I think so. I’m taking the dog pile on top of me as an indication.
Our Family Tree Projects started arriving today. We could call these Christmas trees but we won’t. We will call them Terrific Trees and Winter Trees and Family Tree Projects. Just to be safe and so no one gets offended. So far, it has worked. The majority of the trees come back green and red, BUT I absolutely love the purple and pink ones and/or the Superhero ones. For real. My partner just got a THOR tree today. We weren’t sure when we were first
deciphering contemplating admiring it because we thought maybe it was a Native American tree . . . really, we thought we saw a warrior . . . but then we found the title (written lightly in pencil so you could see our problem) and it was “THE GREAT THOR TREE”. Of course.
I just got a tree today covered in coconut. I do NOT like coconut. The smell is killing me. I may just have to disguise it with some febreeze. I don’t know. Right now, the coconut is winning.
Here’s the tree we send home (we enlarge it on the copier):
I also give the kids an award (as in, I staple it right up next to the tree. We don’t have a ceremony or anything because I have to be honest and true and married to my core curriculum).
