After I went away to college, I started spending Easter with my roommate Siobhan in Sacramento. It became a tradition for me to go to her house and do the traditional Easter I never got as a kid. I think there have only been a few years in which I didn't go. This would be one of them. This broken ankle really puts a damper on my fun!
The most comforting thing though, is that still, no matter what, my mom always sends me an Easter basket in the mail--even though it is so expensive to ship. Happy Easter, everyone. I hope you are continuing with your own traditions, or creating some new ones!

Nothing particularly awesome happened today, but it was a good day anyway. My students were pretty good. They all had very pleasant attitudes and smiling faces (with the exception of my not-so-good class, but even they were okay. I really am going to miss them next year. I really enjoy these kids. Even when, as a group, they are not the best, as individuals, they are awesome kids. I never thought I'd get this attached to middle school kids as I never wanted to teach middle school. And really, I would jump at the chance to teach high school again in a second, but my 7th graders are great. :)
