Happy March 10th! Man, it was hard waking up this morning. I have a love-hate relationship with Daylight Savings. I normally have a Luna Bar for breakfast, but today it was cereal. I love cereal.
 Spring has Sprung here in California (who am I kidding...we never really had a Winter this year) All the trees at my school are in full bloom. So pretty, but my allergies go crazy this time of year! You can't see it in the photo, but it is literally "snowing" pollen.
I have been grading my students Birthdate Weather Projects. I created this project last year & it is so fun. I have students research the weather on the day they were born. They chose 10 cities East of the Mississippi River and 10 cities West of the Mississippi River. Then, they create data displays comparing the temperatures and find the mean, median, mode & range. So fun #mathnerdalert :)
 After school, I headed to my parents to pick up Luke. I had to take a pic with my Dad. This is 26 days post brain surgery! Doesn't he look awesome?!? One of the positive things about him having surgery is that I have gotten to see him 3-4 times a week for the past month. My mom watches Luke 3 mornings a week, so it has been great seeing my dad so often! My dad is doing so well and it actually going back to work in a few days! Way to go Jimmy!
Love the hills in our town this time of year...so green & gorgeous!
 Our Lukey Guy loves his books. He loves crawling up into his chair & "reading"
This afternoon was the start of Iced Coffee season. Warm weather & a need for caffeine after Springing Forward.
Afternoon chalking on a beautiful Spring Day.
Kate's front tooth is hanging by a thread so I gave her an apple to try and get that tooth to fall out. It did not work. Maybe tomorrow.
 Dinner tonight! We had my Smashed + Loaded Mashed Potatoes, Chicken Marsala & Brocollini. YUM.
So, there you have it!
A peek into our Monday.
Hope you had a great 10th!
