I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their summer. Please stay safe. I am going to a funeral for a former student tomorrow morning and it is just too sad for me.

I have to admit that when I woke up Friday morning I was a little nervous about the weather, but the day turned out pretty good. I should have known that a little wet weather would not ruin our field trip. We all got a little damp with the heavy mist for the first hour we were there, but after that I stayed pretty dry. I had a great day and I hope that all my students did as well. You were supposed to have fun on this trip, but I also wanted you to make those math connections. Did you? Let me know. I have to stop typing and go correct those six flags packets. Then I will check my email for some more pictures from six flags. Don't forget to email them to me.

The rest of my week was very relaxing. I did a little bit of school work. I made up the workbook for our math day at six flags and I read a book called "The Number Devil". The book was about a boy that did not like math and every time he went to sleep he had dreams about it. The Number devil came into his dreams to show him how fun math can be. I enjoyed the book and I think it will be required summer reading for next years incoming freshmen.
My vacation ended with a weekend of baseball. Little league parade and first game of the season was Saturday and then Sunday was an AAU baseball game. My son can't join just one baseball league. He has to join both Little League and AAU. I guess it is a good thing that I like baseball.

I spent most of my weekend at my daughter's colorguard competitions. Saturday they won the state championship and Sunday they got the gold medal at the New England Championships. They are having a rally Tuesday night because Wednesday morning they are leaving for Ohio to compete for the National championship. Going to all of her competitions has made me realize that we have such a wonderful administration here in Norton. My daughter is a freshmen in high school and she has had many home shows for colorguard and I have never seen her school administrator at these. Last year the team qualified for the national championship and had a rally show the night before they left and their principal was not there so I don't expect to see her this week either.
I just want to let everyone know that we are lucky to have a principal and vice principal that are always showing us their support. I wish my daughter had that at her high school.

Have you started reading? I am reading this book for the second time. If you read to the left of my blog "all about me" you know that I am a Tour de France fan and a Lance Armstrong fan so I was excited to hear our book choice for this year. I hope you like the book as much as I did(or at least half as much as I did). The picture above is Lance during the last stage of his last Tour de France when he won a record 7 times. Now that Lance has retired from cycling he is doing a lot to raise money for cancer and awareness of early cancer detection. I am sure you have seen the yellow bracelets that read "Livestrong". That is his motto. I have been wearing mine for 3 years now. Ever since I was diagnosed with cancer myself. Lance will be in Boston in April to run the Boston marathon. I will be on the route some place to cheer him, and all the other runners(maybe Mr. Taylor will be running again this year). Lance is doing this to raise money for his foundation. I found the following quote from the Foundation website
"At the Lance Armstrong Foundation, we unite people to fight cancer believing that unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything."
You can apply that quote to more than just fighting cancer. I particularly like the last part of the quote "Attitude is everything"
Enjoy the book and if you have any thoughts to share on what you read make sure to post those thoughts.

Now back to the weather. If the weather people are correct (50-50 shot at that) I do believe we will be home tomorrow so enjoy the snow day. Hopefully this will be our one and only snow day of the year.
