The new Scholastic book order came in last week and I scored some new titles. My favorite has to be this Kristi Yamaguchi (Olympic Medalist turned Author) book called Dream Big Little Pig! Just look at the cover and you'll fall in love with this persistent little pig in pursuit of her passion. But after several dreams melt away, will she find one that suits her?
It reminded me of an article I read last spring at Inside the School about not being afraid to
fall fail, and it sparked a bulletin board idea to get kids thinking about their goals and dreams:
Finally, it's this time of year every year when I'm reminded of one of the greatest love stories on ice E.V.E.R. I will forever be in awe of the graceful elegance of Olympic gold-medalist Figure Skaters Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov and, though it's been 13 years since he passed away, I still cannot watch this beautiful duo without being sad for Katia and their daughter.
