I keep getting good reports about how well my class is doing in my absence.  Way to go kids!  I am proud of you.  Keep in mind that those troll books need to be published and ready to turn in by March 25 so I can grade them over spring break.  Last year I graded them in the mountains of Colorado which seemed fitting somehow.  Anyway, we need to read them to our first grade buddies before that so...work diligently on them.  Don't hurry, quality is what we are after, but work hard.

I will be home soon.  I can't wait to see you all and tell you more about my trip.

Hang in there, hold it together and we'll see you soon.
