To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Brrr...it's cold outside!

We have been enjoying a sort of winter unit this month. We've read really great stories like "White Snow Bright Snow" by Alvin Tresselt and fun poems out of Jack Prelutsky's "It's Snowing! It's Snowing!"

Sarah wrote an acrostic poem ofher own and the girls colored and cut out snowmen (or "snowgirls" as Abby calls it) of their own.The kids are staying nice and warm in the fun blankets Ms. Carol made for them:-)

Oh, how very cozy the kids look... The acrostice poem was a very cute idae, and the girls did a wonderful job on coloring their snowmen!

What a GREAT picture of the kids. It is great to see you all smiling and warm in your blankets of many colors.
Love and miss you,
