My school celebrated its 100th birthday today. Everyone has been hustling to decorate it for the open house this weekend, I've never seen it look so pretty! Today was a big assembly, with student speakers, songs, a flash mob, and even birthday cupcakes for everyone. I headed an art project for the whole school - individual student banners strung throughout the hallways. But of course, our own art decorating my classroom door and wall space - heart mosaics and eagle motifs (our school mascot), which we finished just in the nick of time at the end of the day bell. I teach at the same school that I used to go to when I was little, as for my brother. When I asked my mom why we were smiling so goofy in the picture, she said, "because you're kids! kids are goofy!"
