Did you go out tonight? I walked around with a mermaid and a Spider-Girl.
Did I mention that it was pouring...wait...POURING! We got a little soaked. But that just makes for a very memorable night.
So, moving on...I completely forgot my own linky party! Oh my! It is late, but I'm rollin' with it. :)
I have two small WOWs this week. First one-Aimsweb. We just adopted Aims as our progress monitor for math and reading this year. We did math last year but not the reading component. I have been working hard to understand the "rate of improvements," growth lines, trend lines, etc (should I keep listing?) I did figure out many things but then we had some training yesterday....and...AHA! I finally get it. I finally get it.
Second up...home. I have been feeling a little overwhelmed lately (anyone else?) It is my fault. I look around my house, or think about school, or think about blog-land and just start to feel overwhelmed with all the things that need or want to do. So much cleaning, so many toys, so many student needs, ( I shouldn't go on.)
That leads me to home. We went to my parent's house for dinner this week (they just live next door). And I realized (well, forgot) how nice it can be to just be at home. To just relax. To not need to clean. No laundry for a little while. It was needed. It was nice. We probably all have a place that is calming to us. But I seem to forget that my place is just next door.
Hope you can link up to share something WOW about your week.
