I'm so excited. My favorite field trip is happening tomorrow. Math Day at Six Flags. Even the forecasted rain will not dampen my enthusiasm for this trip. I get excited seeing my students so excited about this trip. I just wish it didn't take place when there were so many school athletic events going on. I would love all my students to be able to participate. I apologize to all my athletes. Good luck at your games and matches tomorrow afternoon.

Nothing like a little time away from school to kick back and relax. I have been very busy doing everything that needs to be done so I can sit back and relax for the end of vacation. I corrected papers from school, made up my smartboards for the next two weeks, did housework and went to dentist appointments. Now time to have some fun. I have been watching some very exciting playoff games (Bruins and Celtics) and tonight I am going to (hopefully) an exciting Red Sox game. That is if it doesn't get rained out. The only thing I haven't done this vacation is read. Well, there is always tomorrow. I hope everyone else on vacation is finding time to have fun.

Only 2 more days of school and then April vacation starts. There are so many things that I want to do during vacation and I doubt that I will have time to do it all. I find that I let so many things g0 during the school year. I just keep saying, "I will do that during vacation." Now I have too many things to do and only one week to do them. One thing I have to do is visit my sister. She and her family moved to New York State 2 years ago and I have not gone out to visit them yet. (I know I am a terrible sister) I will make sure I see her and my niece and nephew during April vacation. I have another niece that lives on the cape and missed her 6th birthday party back in March (because I was in New Jersey) so I have to go see her and deliver her birthday present present, 2 months late. I have a few books that I bought months ago and haven't even started to read yet so I need to have free time to read. And like every school vacation my children have dentist appointments. It is so much easier to have them on vacation so no one misses a day of school. While I make plans to do these things I have to keep an eye on my sons baseball schedule because he has practice Saturday, Monday and Wednesday. Then the season begins with games Thursday night and Saturday afternoon. I'm getting tired just writing about all this. I just have to remember that after this vacation there are only 8 weeks left in the school year.

Wow, it's term 4. Can you believe that this school year is just about over? This is always a difficult time to keep your focus. I know I have to push myself harder to get things done. The warm weather makes me want to go outside and do things instead of staying in to make up a test or correct one. We need to make sure that we stay on task for just two more months.

Boy do I love baseball season. I spent some time in Foxboro this afternooon watching the Norton vs. Foxboro baseball game. It was 2-0 Norton in the 4th when I had to leave. I thought with baseball came the warm weather. This afternoon was anything but warm. I wish I could have stayed for the whole game, but I just couldn't handle baseball and cold weather. I thought football had the cold weather? I hope our boys went on to win the game. If you are reading this and you know the score of the game fill the rest of us in on that.
