P52: Week 41 around the sun

This was my first 5 full days of school this school year - and it was a busy one!

I came back from my conference on Sunday after a quick shopping spree at the mall with mom. Someone has to support the economy, right? Good thing I got a new puffy vest, because the temps have fallen here! I have actually needed heat in the car in the mornings and afternoons!

More signs of fall were all around too - I made my famous pumpkin cookies this week and got to pick up a friend's CSA which came with amazing fresh fall veggies (and so many more apples!). This really is a delicious season!

School was jam packed this week. We had back to school night and then tons of fun, writing on tables (best motivator) and doing some awesome brain storming on some big concepts. The real excitement at school was the making of a lipdub video. Heard of "Thanksgivukkah" - the name for Chanukah and Thanksgiving this year since they start the same day! Well, we're the Day School closest to Plymouth Rock so we're celebrating it loud and proud! You can see the video here!

Highlight of the week: The Red Sox beating the Rays and moving onto the ALCS! Go SOX!!!

Favorite teaching moment: When I told a kid his time working me in math was over (they were writing on my table) he drew a sad face on the table - adorable, but sorry kid, your mini-lesson was over!

Random-osity: I cannot figure out car defrosters. I have a master's degree and for the life of me can never get the balance of temperature, inside/outside air, fan strength right. Sad, but true.
I'm working on growing the blog's facebook page - won't you please join me over there as well? I post a sampling of the random things around me and would love to connect there (here) too!

And I am on bloglovin' here! Plus the various other social media sites, see the links at the top right of the page!

Thanksgivukah! Sounds awesome! Can't wait to see how you celebrate two holidays at once. Seems like a small logistical challenge, but I know it will be creatively celebrated! Awesome week as usual!

Your pumpkin cookies look so how you put the chips in there too. I posted at your party about YOUR town.☺

Yes, you had a busy week but you accomplished much which is awesome. My week was similar but I didn't bake any cookies, lol.

Love all things pumpkin. I need to make those cookies. I made pumpkin bread Sunday and it's all gone already. The boys love it.
