Carpe Diem

Happy Tuesday!  For those of you that had a long weekend, I hope you had a relaxing weekend.  We headed out to Pittsburgh to visit family.  Lots of cousin time with nine cousins between our two families.  Everyone but Collin is looking forward in the photo of our gang!  We had a great time going to Connor's football game and overall just playing.  We didn't head out anywhere and that is my kind of weekend...relaxation, catching up with our family and playing!

When we got home yesterday, I had time to scoot down into my craft room and make some cards.  I'm playing along with both the Play Date Cafe and CAS-ual Fridays!  I love this sentiment reminds me of one of my favorite movies, Dead Poet Society.  It may not fit exactly with the reading theme at CAS-ual Fridays...but I'm going with it!  Have a great day everyone!

  6. stunning!!! LOVE the pop of red...this is one of my all time favourite movies and I think it should count for the challenge :) It probably can be found in print form somewhere. I have just finished one venti americano misto and just come out of a very short staff meeting. Teachers in our province are in negotiations and we are in first phase of job action (basically no extra meetings/supervision)...won't affect the running of our classrooms, though. I have a word search and 2 hershey's kisses waiting on each desk...kids come in 45 mins :) hugs! lol, that was so sweet what Marcel said...I have to remind my class that when they have a guest teacher, routines may change some :)
