  1. Weekend Reading

    September 3, 2011 by frecklesandsunshine

    This is from the Smithsonian website. It’s the next best thing to the Smithsonian itself. And, teachers? There is amazing stuff here.

    Because it is the opening weekend of the college football season and the US Open is going on, we have a lot of sports on the television this weekend. Maybe that’s why I stumbled onto this list of great teammates in the history of sports.

    Arne Duncan, you’re my hero.

    My recipe for the french toast from Sam’s Cafe in Champaign, Illinois was featured on the Tasty Kitchen blog. Adrianna, from A Cozy Kitchen, made the recipe and blogged about it. Her photography puts mine to shame, so I’m glad she showed how pretty this meal really can be.

  2. Changes

    Did I tell you? I’m interviewing for teaching jobs.

    As the summer slips by, I’m starting to get nervous. Not about finding a job, but about all of the hard work that is going to take place in a very short period of time if I do find a job. Boxes will need to be transported. My classroom will need to be set up. Materials and supplies will need to be purchased and prepared. That usually takes me at least a week and we haven’t even talked about lesson planning and learning new standards and curriculum. And, what if I get a job in a grade I haven’t taught before? Will I have the right selection of books for my kids? Will I be able to afford it all? Dude! What about daycare? Who’s going to watch Olivia?

    There are a lot of changes coming my way.

    Then, I saw this picture.

    My Drunk Kitchen. Go watch it. You’ll laugh your heinie off.

    Tina Fey’s prayer for her daughter pretty much sums it all up.

    Another cool photo re-creation site.

    What I’m reading.

    What Tim is reading.

    A book I covet.

    This is yet another reason teachers need to be paid more.

    Eeeeek! Zombies!

    This idea might bring a higher quality teacher to the classroom.

    Do I really have to wait until Olivia is older to start building leprechaun traps?

    Between our 60+ degree temperatures and this book, I have a serious case of garden fever.

    A friend has started a new blog which chronicles her role in her husband’s journey to become an Ironman athlete. She’s hilarious in person, so I can’t wait to read her perspective on this adventure.

    My weekend project. Wish me luck.

    I’m a new convert to TED. This is one of my favorite videos.

    Times are tight for most of us, but if you think you can’t help Japan, think again.

    This treehouse is what childhoods are made of.

    I don’t know how to sew, but one day I will. And when I do, I want to make this for Olivia.

    Teachers need our support.

    This pasta dish is going on our menu soon. Have I told you we started “meatless Mondays?” This will be perfect.

    Trying to figure out a way to make this happen this summer.

    Read about why politics and breastfeeding don’t, or shouldn’t, mix.

    Spring is near. I’ll be spending a lot of time planning my garden. What are you going to grow?
