thoughts turning

Last week I brought our new bunnies in to see the kids in my class.  And, of course, it truly was a magical thing.  My students were mesmerized as they pet their downy soft bodies and watched their little twitching noses.  A couple of students in particular were so totally taken with little Nala and Nabooru they they would almost go into a trance-like state when they interacted with them.  If I didn't actually feel obligated to teach them letters and numbers, I might consider sitting around and playing with animals with them each and every day.  It was just that much fun.

At the end of Spring break I partook in a little consumer therapy with two girlfriends as we spent 2 days in Park City walking through the outlets and then eating out-of-this-world sushi.  It was a great way to welcome in Spring.

Is that bunny yellow? I love it! M looks so cute with those bunny ears!

Love the purple toenails. I need a Spring pick-me-up and I need to be in a trance-like state for a while. Can I come hold your bunnies?

CUTE TOES!
Looks like some fun consumer fun!

The bunnies look like such a fun thing to do for the kids.

Cute bunnies, cute little kiddies, cute flip-flops, love the toenail color. Fun times. A get-away with girlfriends sounds very enticing to me right now. I should plan something like that. Glad you got a break.

I need cute toes like that. I was just looking at my ugly toes and thinking about how badly I needed a
Pedicure.

I hung out at the outlets last week too- too bad we didn't bump into each other. I was the one with the two crazy boys...

The students were served a treat for sure. Bunnies are soft and like to be cuddled. Perfect.

Sounds so idyllic. And I'm totally going to go paint my toenails now...

Sushi therapy sounds good to me...I think I'll try that out soon.

I'm going to throw caution to the winds and say that there is a lot to be learned from playing with animals. Even letters and numbers if it's done with intent. I vote for more bunnies in the classroom!
