Love for Sandy Hook


As educators, we remember and honor our fallen colleagues and their students from Sandy Hook School. We honor them each day in our classrooms in which we continue their dream of teaching our children. We honor their memory with our service. Join with teachers everywhere in committing random acts of kindness to show our love for Sandy Hook.

Currently in December

I know I've been slacking on blogging and I am sorry. I am hoping that this post will get me back on track.

 Just a quick update on my friend, Drew, who is fighting leukemia ....  he is doing OK, he is about to go through his third round of chemo.  Both Drew and his wife are still debating if they want to go through the stem cell transplant.  His brother was only a 5 out of 10 match and it looks like he will have to go through the national registry.  Please continue sending prayers their way.

Another dear friend and co-worker was diagnosed with breast cancer recently.  She is a mom of two adorable young kids.  I am amazed by her strength and positive attitude!!! She is incredible.  Please include my friend Lisa in your prayers as well.  She is going to kick cancers butt and do it in style!

I have been off this entire past week for Thanksgiving..... Holy smokes, did I enjoy spending time with my family.  I don't know if its because I am older now and my kids are older but appreciate my time off with them so much more.  I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving and enjoyed your time with family and friends.

Now time to grade papers and get ready for the week ahead.  Only 3 weeks until I have my next vacation, but who's counting?  :)

I am linking up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade's Currently linky party....come join the fun!
