Rather quiet here today. The weather was beautiful, which in VT means about 35 and not snowing. The snow was actually melting today. My daughter and I walked around town and enjoyed the hint of spring. We played our first game of Flash Card War. The game was fun, we made up flash cards using 0 to 10 in addition and subtraction equations; who ever has the highest number wins the hand, ties are settled the same way as traditional war. The goal is to increase speed and accuracy – getting ready for second grade and all.
My tree made a small sound, I now have 7 followers on twitter. I have submitted letters to three local papers. As well as reaching out to ‘Defend Public Education’ regarding collaborating in their organizing efforts on behalf of education.
I leave this evening with thoughts and prayers for the people of Japan.
