Hey everyone! I'm back after a few-week-long hiatus that included adventures in Japan, lots of crafting and way too much work on my masters project (BORING!) - Good news is, I am literally, (fingers crossed!) a week away from defending my project and being DONE with my masters degree. Wahoo! Go me! :) (Well... that is assuming that my project committee signs off on it.... gulp. eek.)
It seems like so much time has gone by since the last time I blogged so here's a *brief* little photo stroll through Japan.
The first day I arrived my husband's graduate class and I toured through the tsunami devastation ruins. It was truly unbelievable. Nearly a year and a half ago and still much of the area looks like this:
Now these have nothing to do with our trip to Japan, but I made them for the culmination of my Patriotic Music summer school class. We serenaded parents with patriotic music in our craftily decorated red, white, and blue classroom. Afterwards we celebrated with these delectable strawberries and a layered red, white, and blue drink that I forgot to take pictures of. Google it - it's worth seeing! (You can also find instructions on Family Fun).
Well I can't wait to see what everyone else has been up to and show you all of the crafts I've been working on - I decided to undertake a Dr. Seuss theme for my classroom this year. I promise to be back soon!
