2016 Week 6 Fire Safety, Letters Tt, Uu, Vv, Ww, Xx, and Patterns

So this happened on Monday!
My newest GRANDBABY was born in Indianapolis to my oldest daughter, Shae!
Welcome Pia Joy!
(guess where I am heading for MEA break?)
 Shae and Pia
and
Chris, Calla, Cru, Wren, and Pia

 Here's a peak at my crazy weekend...
yep, North Shore again!
We walked from Silver Bay to Beaver Bay, 
met a student (all grown up!) on the trail
"Mrs. O'Duggan!" 
Never though I'd hear that on the 300 miles of wilderness trail!
Also had lunch right next to a waterfall, dug for agates, and played in Lake Superior.  
Also tented it in the freezing temps.  Life is good!



One last item before we begin,
Ms. Manly is taking the kids to the computer lab during our Media time!  Yay!
Here is the link to the program the kids played with on Friday:
