Not two, but three!
On Saturday, I took out two shoe boxes and all the gifts, only to find out that two boxes weren't enough! We wound up collecting so many fun things, that I needed to pack three boxes. Two for boys and one (bigger one) for a girl! I think I told you I would bring them back to school to show you, but they are so heavy, I'm not going to do that. :)
Instead, we need to remember to take a picture of all of us this week and print one to put in each box. We also have exactly $21 dollars to use to ship them. That's just the right amount. I did use some of the money to buy some other little things, altogether I think we had about $25. A special thanks to Brittany of 5C who gave $3 to our collection.
Wow! This warms my heart.
*This is my fifth (and a half) year teaching fourth grade. *I'm married, but I don't use my married name (it's Seaman). *I have a 28-year-old son, Mac. He lives in Louisiana. *I live in Aurora. *I have two dogs, Skipper Roo Seaman and Gilly Crew Seaman, they are both females. *I love to read. *I don't have one favorite book. That would be like saying I have one favorite student!
*Taking care of the Earth is important to me, so this year I decided to start thrift shopping. My goal is purchase 80% of my clothing from thrift stores over the next year.
*I'm an official volunteer for Operation Christmas Child. *I do not like to cook, but I do like to bake. *I watch television, too. *I love to walk--fast! *I enjoy riding my bike. *The White Sox are my favorite team, the Cubs are my least favorite. *I still love many Cub fans! *I'm not a big football fan, but in the fall I root for the Bears, the Colts, and the LSU Tigers. *I enjoy Charlie Brown and his friends, they teach important lessons. *Red Vines are one of my favorite candies, but I don't eat it much (especially now that I have braces). *I have three big brothers and one "little" sister--they are all taller than I am! *My mom and dad are in heaven, and I miss them everyday. *I like to vacuum. *My birthday is in October. *I love keeping in touch with my former students. *What else would you like to know?
