The Barth family enjoyed hearing a wonderful presentation from author/illustrator Jeff Kinney. He shared funny stories and he showed us how he creates his illustrations for the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series. After the presentation, we were able to have a few books signed! This was really cool!
U2 from Dublin
I hope you're having a relaxing vacation. It's been nice to have some time to go through my photos/videos from my trip to Dublin from the Thanksgiving break. My husband and attended two shows, one in which we volunteered for the ONE Campaign prior to the show. We had general admission tickets and were able to watch the show very close to the smaller stage.
Museum of Science Photos
These amazing photos were taken by Aaron Saunders (a parent from our class). Many thanks Aaron for sharing them with us!
I love staying connected between the classroom and the children's homes. I look forward to posting often this year! Feel free to leave comments!
