The Good. The Random. The Fun. v.24

The Good:
We had our end of year Zimriyah this past week and while it was bittersweet, it was so good to just come together as a school to celebrate. I mean, it's going to be a good time when glow sticks are involved, right?

The Random:
We read the "Phantom Tollbooth" over the past few weeks. I had planned to show the kids the film version and they were expecting it right after we finished the book. When I told them to gather around the Smartboard they got all excited, then I posted the essay guidelines for the AP Euro exam and they freaked out and I quickly started the film - they were trying to be mad at me but couldn't!

The Fun:
We had a last hurrah field trip on Friday, before our Freedom Trail tour, we hung out by the duck pond and got to see tons of baby ducks! It was so fun to see all the babies and see the kids so excited to see the cute ducks, too!

Can't believe you're just finishing. We got out on the 6th, and that was after several snow days. The ducklings are adorable. Enjoy your summer!

Those ducklings are adorable! And since you're in Boston, it reminds me of that book "Make Way for Ducklings!"
