birthday I just took a shower and we are going out to dinner tonight to celebrate my birthday. Jeff’s wonderful mom made a lemon raspberry cake for when we get home. Can you guess how many candles?

Here I am just before leaving. Cameron is photobombing me with the bunny ears in the background. D’oh!


That’s All Thursday

Fun fact: TYPEWRITER, is the longest word that can be made using the letters on only one row of the keyboard.

Okay- you’re fifth graders now.

I’ll post here occasionally through the summer. Remember that you are welcome to use your moby and edmodo accounts. Spelling City is available (I published all of the fourth grade lists I made, and you can use them to keep sharp during the summer,) and all of our learning sites can be accessed on the top left of this page. You are welcome to post replies here or on posts that I make. I get notification that there is a reply, and I will respond when I can.

See you in September.

Problem of the day: What language is the official language of the country of Belize?
