Ventriloquist in the Classroom

Look who entertained my students today!  I must say, he was not on his best behavior! Sometimes he says things that really surprise me!

Uploaded Walking Taco

A Walking Taco!  Hmmmm….one of my students pulled this out of his backpack today; he was very excited about eating it.  It is called an Uploaded Nacho Walking Taco.  I was a little grossed out just looking at it.  I bet by the time he walked to lunch, it was gone.  Bring on the Prilosec!  Footnote:  Trust me, this student does not need to eat anything that might upset his stomach.

     Easter Memories….chocolate bunnies, pretty eggs, candies, new dresses, and Easter bonnets. The real Easter is not the rabbit and chocolate egg.  There is another figure who represents Easter: the Holy Lamb, who died for us. Remember the tomb of Jesus was found empty.  He had been resurrected….he was not there.  This is one of the most powerful evidences of the resurrection that there is.

Alligator Chase

My family and I recently went on a airboat tour of the Everglades. It was fun skimming across the grasslands, going through the twisting Mangrove tunnels, learning about plants, animals, and folklore. However, the highlight was when one of the alligators got a little too close for comfort. You can hear my girls panicking in the background. Personally, I was envisioning a cute pair of shoes or a purse

Chicken Rides Scooter

What do you do when you get a chicken for Christmas?  You name it Rambo, and teach it to ride your scooter!  Gotta love my grandson, Cross!

Ice Skating Fail

Have an ice day! My family and I recently went to Gatlinburg, TN where we went ice skating. By “we went ice skating”, I mean I cheered from the sideline. They no more stepped out onto the ice when an announcement was made to clear the ice. In this video, you can see the show my family put on long after everyone else had gracefully skated out of the rink. Notice at the end of the video, the workers do not look pleased at how long it took us to clear the ice. I can’t say that anyone in my family took to the ice in an exhibition that showed off their masterful skating skills; however, they were very entertaining.

          A little blob of orange. I have a grandfish named Bulls Eye (he has one red eye). I want to give my grandfish, Bulls Eye, a shout out! When I press my face against the glass, oohing and ahhing as I watch Bulls Eye, he swims to the front of his bowl as if to say, “Oh, hey Nana!” For two years this little poop machine has swam circles around his bowl. My daughter told me she is already concerned about the day that Bulls Eye dies; she actually caught her husband talking baby talk to him/her this week. This little blob of orange was won at a school event; however, his accessories cost far more, yet the smiles on the faces of family members definitely make up for it. It is sad to think that one day little Bulls Eye will end up in a commode. In the meantime, I guess we need to work on goldfish funeral etiquette.
