I tried to post the first week of 2017, but I didn’t get it loaded and it disappeared. Not a very good start!
I love my new socks. The pattern is made by Anna Hersey and the yarn is Savvy Skeins Sensible Skeins. I wanted to use as much of the yarn as possible so I made a stripy cuff.
This summer I read a lot of books. I finally listened to my son’s favorite book of all times – Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. Then I started the spin off series called Ender’s Shadow. They are futuristic, geeky, wonderfulness. I’ve been having a blast!
This summer Rich and I had a Harry Potter movie marathon. That always means I have to then read all the books again. I can’t stand missing all the parts they couldn’t put in the movie. My copies of the audio version of Harry Potter are tape cassettes, so I borrowed the audio books from the library. I just finished the Deathly Hallows last week. I miss Harry, Ron, and Hermione – and everyone else.
I’m having trouble finding the energy to work on the blog. School has begun and I now have a self-contained classroom. I am teaching all subjects. We have a new reading program that is that thinks we have 3 hours to teach reading. I have not taught 3rd grade math before and this is a new math program since I taught in 1st grade.
I had a Harry Potter movie marathon before school began and then I decided to read the Potter books since the movies can’t include so many great parts of the stories. I’m now on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It’s great fun to listen to the books on tape and then read parts of the books at home. I live close to work but I can get quite a bit read to and from work and running a few errands in the afternoon.
Hope all my teacher friends are having a good beginning of school.
