In an effort to think about spring I am participating in shining egg's Green Week. Sadly there is virtually no green here in Northern Michigan since we are still knee deep in winter (literally.) As I walked around my school today thinking about green, I quickly noticed that I am surrounded by it - from the alphabet across the hall to the bins in the back of my classroom. Just finding little bits of green today brought a smile to my face. It amazes me that I have been in that building almost every day for the last 15 years but today was the first time I really took notice. Thank you shining egg for getting me to stop and look.
