We decorated our door with a huge cupcake.  We cut birthday candles and asked the students to write their name and the title of their favorite book on them.  They placed them on the cupcake and got some multi colored goldfish crackers.

I got this picture in an email from Miss Bridges.  She is in Florida and went to several Mardi Gras parades to get some goodies for our students.  We use these things for prizes for AR.

Day 48, Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Everyday at lunch time, I have a little 4 year old come to the office to visit me.  He is non-verbal and has begun to use sign language.  I discovered that he loves to watch Elsa sing "Let It Go".  He will sign, "more please" when the video stops!  Makes my heart happy to see this little guy doing so well.

Day 47, Tuesday, February 16, 2016

I have been taking Coco to the dog park.  He likes to go, but he never "runs" like I thought he would.
