The Anticipation

Our days have been filled with much anticipation - we have been counting the days until the 100th Day of School, and this coming Monday is the day.  The children are giddy with excitement as we are marking the occasion with a pajama day and special crafts.  Adding the to air of excitement is not only the upcomingValentine's Day celebration next week, but also the 'epic' snowstorm headed our way... And did I mention we also hosted moms and dads on two mornings for Parent Visit days?  Needless to say, there's been a lot to anticipate!  Some photos from this week:

...which turned in to this.  "Look, I made a Kindness Heart!"
