Did you know...

that Mr. Q and Miss U are married! A couple weeks ago, while learning the letter Q, we had a wedding. Because, as you all know, Q and U are always together! We decided that they will get married, so they will stay together as we spell "Qu" words.

The wedding announcements went out and names were drawn to see who would be the Mr. and Miss. The children were excited all week and couldn't believe they were going to have a wedding in their classroom! All the other boys and girls were attendants in the ceremony and wore QU words around their neck. The ceremony was performed by the preacher at VP and parents, grandparents, and staff all attended the wedding. After a brief ceremony the reception began. All the normal wedding food such as, nuts, mints, strawberries, grapes, crackers, cheese, punch and of course wedding cake.

The students really enjoyed this memorable event. And hopefully from now until forever they will remember that when spelling a "Qu" word, Q and U are always together!

Let it Snow...Let it Go!

Who would have thought that after spending two hours at the park today, in the warm sunshine, wearing short sleeves and shorts, and getting a little sun burnt; that it was SNOWING here six days ago! But, I have to say that it's been GREAT! The snow was fun and it was also nice to see it go. How people live in that all the time...I do not know. Here are a few pics from playing in the snow. Cooper wasn't liking it at all. Last year he loved it! He finally stayed by the porch and enjoyed watching everyone else play.
