Classroom

24 Jan

Yesterday one of my students, instead of filling in the usual 2A, 2B, 2C, or 2D for her class, just penciled in “room.”  And she didn’t think anything of it!  The little beans are all so funny and surprising, I always think, “what is going on in those little heads of theirs?”

Steak Burger

22 Jan

Santi took me to lunch at Steak Burger on Saturday.  And the burgers were really good, some of the best I’ve had in Madrid!  I want to go back but we have to plan on splitting a burger and not trying to eat one each, I was way too full after our meal.

Fondue

After lunch today we put my new fondue set to use and made chocolate fondue with strawberries and bananas.

Minnesota Christmas

7 Jan

I’m back in Madrid but wishing I was still at home in Minnesota.  I’ve been feeling a little homesick and spent the afternoon looking through photos from our Christmas vacation.

It’s back to work tomorrow and I’m hoping seeing the little beans tomorrow morning will cure my homesick blues.

Very Merry

6 Jan

This is a bit late but I hope you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’s!

I flew home to spend the holidays in Minnesota and we had the best vacations!  I love those breaks when I forget the day of the week and all about my work routine for awhile.

We kept busy with Christmas dinners, a Timberwolves game, ice-skating, a trip to the Art Institute, and lots of shopping but my favorite time was spent at home with my family assembling puzzles and baking Spritz cookies!

Merry Christmas
