Tomorrow we'll be getting the house tidy for a visitor. We're meeting him for lunch, then coming back here to get caught up with each other's news and watch some movies. Then Monday comes. *sigh* Well, there's always next weekend! I'll try to grab some relaxation this evening. I didn't get to crochet at all a couple nights this week.

It's gray and wet today, so the drive won't be very pleasant, but Mr. is going along, so at least I'll have some company.

This is preaching to the choir, but I REALLY enjoy logging in each day and catching up with everyone's news. There's a song lyric in "The Muppet Movie":
"There's not a word yet/For old friends you've just met."
Substitute "haven't met," and that's MMC.

We are always glad to read your posts as well, Merry !!! Always very glad to see you xoxo

The enchiladas sound delicious !! Since I don't eat red meat, I should get a cookbook with recipes like that !! I don't know why I never have !!!

One of my favorite Christmas movies, Angel In The Family, takes place someplace in California in the mountains and there was a lot of snow !! You could just tell it was real !! xo

Third grade math curriculum has ALWAYS been addition and subtraction with carrying and borrowing (now called regrouping); multiplication facts; beginning multi-digit multiplication; beginning division; some geometry as in shape identification, perimeter and area; and beginning fractions. When I say ALWAYS, that means from my mom's time, to my time, to present time; so it's not like a big change in math curriculum happened at all. Plus, these are the things tested on the state test at third grade. We teachers did not determine the curriculum; the state did. Nor was this curriculum introduced this year! The principal wants us to spend our next collaboration day seeing what we could take out of the curriculum!!! Can you believe that? What in the world is hard about memorizing multiplication facts? Shall we not teach it and let the kids be unprepared for fourth grade? But maybe next year these same concerned parents will want the fourth grade teachers not tax the brains of the kids again! Of course, memorizing math facts does interfere with computer time, game-playing time, TV time, sports time, etc. Heaven forbid that we should require homework either. I just had to vent at such stupidity, especially on behalf of our principal. I am floored!!! I wonder what the principal and the parents will say when they get the results of the state test? Of course, it will still be the teacher's fault! Please, let me lower my standards so your kid will not have to work!!! Sorry for the rant.
Wow, I cannot believe that. Isn't school suppose to be challenging.

Once you get to crocheting, don't forget to post pictures of your creations!
