A few things to celebrate this week:

1.  Our high school musical Shrek!  The students did a fabulous job!  My 9 year-old was engaged for the entire two-and-a-half hours.  I also enjoyed seeing both of my nieces on stage.
Parker Baird, playing the role of a giant green ogre, reluctantly agrees to team up with a chatter-box donkey played by Kyle Goings in the Harding High School production of 'Shrek The Musical' at The Palace Theatre. The musical, based on the book by William Steig and the DreamWorks movie, opens Friday, Nov. 8 at 7:30 pm, with performances on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, Nov. 10 at 3 pm. General admission tickets will be available at the door. James Miller/The Marion Star
2.  I am celebrating finally getting a copy of Little Red Writing by Joan Holub!  I have been waiting and waiting for it to come in.  I LOVE this book.  So many writing mini-lessons sprouting!

3.  This week my elementary joined Twitter.  Our twitter handle is @GWElementary.  I am hoping this becomes a way to celebrate all the wonderful things happening at George Washington Elementary!
4.  Today I get to celebrate my niece's birthday.  Love that girl!
5.  Lastly, I just want to celebrate me posting on my blog.  I haven't written anything for over 2 months.  It's always in the back of my mind, but it just doesn't seem to happen.  I need to make this higher on my priority list.
What are you celebrating this week?


  1. Welcome back! Shrek sounds like a wonderful musical. Our middle school puts on yearly musicals and this one would be great! I have heard so many good things about Little Red Writing...might have to find a copy of that!

  2. Isn't it great to be able to post such happy events? This is the season for school musicals, I went to see Cats and it was great too. Enjoy that birthday cake and keep writing!

  3. Ruth's invitation to celebrate nudges to write. School musicals always amaze me. So much work goes into them and students usually surprise with their talent.

  4. Can't wait to get Little Red Write! I definitely have it on the to be purchased list! Glad you got to see the musical and witness the family members participate in the show!
