Back in the "old" days, I remember walking to the mailbox and checking each day for something exciting - a letter, a catalog, anything really. As a child I loved getting mail. Mom gave me all her "junk" mail. I guess for awhile, I may have thought my name was "occupant". It was always such a disappointment when that box was empty. I sort of felt the same these past few weeks when I would wander over to Diane Clancey's site. I love the alphabet challenge and when it wasn't there, I felt my childlike disappointment all over again. So I was tickled pink when I found it up and running yesterday. Yahoo!
We had to use the letters, A#X for our tangles. I chose arabel, 8sams, and xyp. I had so much fun with this and really needed some zen. It has been a very emotional week. I have a beautiful child in my classroom - who I adore, that has a very severe anger problem. We can't see it coming and some issues have happened this week that have been rough for them and their classmates. I just want to help and I seriously do not have a clue how to help. So I needed some calming zen for me.
