P52: 6th week 'round the sun

This week started and ended with snow (well, it ended with a ton more - but more on that in a second).

Sunday night I went to a good friend's superbowl party - what a game! I was pulling for the Ravens, since Joe Flacco grew up about 30ish minutes from where I did. You have to root for the hometown hero right?

What a great game, too! Between the actual football, the halftime show, and that blackout: it's one I'll remember for a long time! Oh, and of course the snacks we enjoyed (roasted marshmallows anyone?) were icing on a fun evening of friends and football.

The rest of the week was typical. But then as many of you know, the storm of the century arrived in Boston! We had a snow day on Friday and I just hung out and watched the snow pile up and up and up. It only just ended Saturday night with a grand total of 26 inches! Lots more snow recaps to come, so stay tuned!

Highlight of the week: nothing can beat a snow day! I haven't had a snow day in 3 years since "snowpocalypse" hit DC when I was in college! Yes, even teachers want them too. The 2 feet of snow was pretty awesome too.

Favorite teaching moment: I graded my class' first big writing assignment this week (we've been writing, but nothing for a score). I returned them on Thursday and one of my kiddos came up to me at pack-up time and thanked me for his grade! I thanked him for a fabulous story to read!

Random-osity: I can read lips, well, which makes football games fun (coaches have filthy mouthes). But, this year at the superbowl either the coaches weren't saying much or I was having too much fun to take notice to pick up any juicy conversations!

Yes. So much snow. Our driveway still looks completely ridiculous (thought I felt better after driving to work this morning and seeing that, in fact, many driveways looks ridiculous!) My favorite part of your weekly updates are your teaching highlights - really pulls me in to that slice of your world!

Tamar dear! I am over at two birds today and will link with you and a few others tomorrow. Okay? I know you are a great and understanding blog buddy. That's what so cool about you. I wondered about your not having power and not being able to blog from hearing how much dumped on Boston. Whew, you sound okay. Yay!

Sounds and looks like a great week! I'm jealous of your snow! I was hoping we would at least get some of it. We got a mere dusting. Then it was 45 degrees yesterday and today so all the snow that we did have is all melting. :(

Looks like a fun Superbowl party!

And wow, that snow! I haven't seen that much snow in a loooong time. Cool!

Sneaking in, but it's still Monday. You obviously enjoyed the snow more than me. But I totally remember the fun of a snow day. One year I had so many that we ended up working some Saturdays and didn't get out of school until June 26 with all the make up days. That is NOT fun.
I totally forgot about super bowl being this past week. I was rooting for the Ravens too-since the Pats and Eagles weren't in. Great game for sure.
Thanks for having this link. Wishing you and Gina continued success with it.

Wow! What a storm you had. Love all the pictures. My husband goes to Boston next week so he's glad it got it out of its system and hopes things stay clear until his return.
