Summer has begun!

My little man can float!  Yeah Charlie!  What a great week of swim lessons!  Now if we can only get Mary Kate to go to a lifeguard.

An unexpected surprise phone call from a former student and former colleague/friend, turned into a really fun blueberry picking experience!  Thanks Genny!  Can't wait until our next adventure!  
Aren't these kids just the cutest!

Tomorrow I am presenting WIKIS with a fellow teacher at the Active Loudoun Staff Development program.  You may be asking:  What is a WIKI?  Just a simple website that can be used for your own personal classroom, that allows students to collaborate, edit and write together.  It also allows for teachers to set up assignments and for parents to access information about your class.  Check out the You Tube.
I can't wait to implement this in my classroom next year!  More to come on WIKIS

On another note:  Summer has almost begun.  Swim lessons are going well for at least one of my children.
Charlie loves it.
Mary Kate does not and will not, I mean refuse to go to any lifeguard.  Hmmm. the funny thing is... she is completely fearless in the water.  Maybe next summer.

Not too shabby and chic!

We had a not too shabby weekend with my mom and Greg.  The beautiful "chic" wedding of Matt and Lauren in the Virginia countryside, followed by a day of Vineyard hopping was fun filled!

Mmmmm Good!  Mary Kate thought so too!

My little man sang his heart out to "This Little Light of Mine"  He is determined to not let anyone blow it out!

The fam and the kids' other sibling, Lillian!
