Here are some of the fantastic things that happened this week:
* I was interviewed for an article in the Fall Teaching Tolerance magazine. Eek!

As I was driving, I wondered if there would be anything to celebrate about this. There were beautiful sunrises, but it was still hard to be happy about being awake earlier than normal. Thinking about this post made it easier though.

* We got to see our daughter inducted into the National Honor Society. I liked learning about their four pillars: Scholarship, Service, Leadership & Character.
* We had a two fun Skype visits this week in honor of International Dot Day. A first grade class chatted with another class in Texas and a second grade class did a reader's theater of The Dot with a fifth grade class near Madison. My students were very excited to connect with other students.
* One evening I ran five miles in just under 43 minutes. That was fast for me.
* I have had a hilarious time reading Naked! with classes at school. They love the playfulness and I love seeing their smiles.
Whew! That is a lot to celebrate. It's been a good week.
