Well...

we have finally had a full week of school - no snow days, no fog delays, back to "normal". Whatever that is!
I must say, I am certainly enjoying my Thursday afternoon Phys Ed classes in the GYM! Now we can actually use the curriculum we have and do proper PE activities. Instead of dodgeball. Every day. Or dangerous games like Alligator (don't ask).
Deanna has been publishing a newspaper. It is called the Friendship Free Press. Mr. Meinen photocopies it and distributes it with the newsletter. This is the second edition. It's full of lovely tips like "Is your homework too hard? Invite a friend over and work together. Nothing's too hard when you share it with a friend!" Very insightful child she is. Can you believe she will be 10 next month? Ya, me either....
Okay, I have to go to Costco now....
That is all.

You'll have to save copies of these newspapers...I'm interesting in reading them. Has she hired reporters yet?

And not having to play dodgeball every day is good. Although probably harder now that there are no posts in the middle of the gym!

And you have to throw the ball harder to reach the other side!
I will definitely have to save the newspapers. Deanna and Natasha do surveys and interviews to find out, for example, what students like to do at recess...
