Ruth Ayres has a link-up on weekends where people link to posts that are celebrations about their week. I love this reminder to celebrate every week.

The view from my computer. Yay! It's autumn.
 Celebrating Connections
We had our final day of Lego League. It was nice that the students had the chance to share their learning and creations with each other and their families. This week we also had conferences at school. It was a great time for chatting with families and students. Because we hosted a book fair, there were many students and families coming through the library. It makes for long days, but the conversations are worth the time.

I also got to chat (texting) with two of our former exchange students this week. It's great to see what they are doing now. They make me smile. I'm thankful for apps that make it possible to talk to people around the world so easily. Now if we could make a way to zip between here and there in moments, that would be beyond awesome.


  1. Oh, I love the ways we can connect, but to be able to zip between here and there in moments - I'm with you on this wish! We just made the long flight from WA to DC to visit our kids and grandson and celebrate son's birthday.

  2. I wish we could "zip" around too, but online video chats are great, too. Glad to hear about your good week. We always had our book fair during conferences, too, helped the sales & it was fun to see whole families coming in. Have a great next week, Crystal!

  3. "Conversations are worth the time" - yes! Here's to the moments - in person and through virtual connections!
