Discover. Play. Build.

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

Here are things that I celebrated this week:

* I was interviewed for the blog Latin@s in Kid Lit. It was fun to share.

* The other blog I am regularly part of is Rich in Color. This week it was featured as one of the "12 Blogs of 2014" on one of the School Library Journal blogs. It was fun to start the day off seeing this tweet:
* A student gave me a holiday card that said, "Thank you for doing writing club. I really enjoyed having a place to write in. It was the funniest, best club ever!" We no longer have a space for writing club, but I hope the students continue to find space and time to write for fun.

* My son is home from college for break!

* The groomer had time for my dog and so he is now poofy and adorable.

* My husband made dinner Friday night when I didn't even want to think - let alone cook.

The week flew by, but fortunately, my list of things to do before the holidays is shrinking rapidly. I hope you have many things to celebrate. 


  1. Love that note from your student :-) Obviously this meant a lot to this child to share this in a card. Enjoy time with your family over the holidays! And hopefully more dinners made by other people :-)

  2. Have a wonderful break, Crystal. I love the two blogs you mentioned, glad you were interviewed for the first one.

  3. Poofy and adorable dog was such a cute image in the mixture of your celebrations. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!

    1. Whatever they used on him made him extra poofy and it's really made me smile. Thanks!
