Travel Destination: Russia



Folkart, culture, and history are major attractions in the country of Russia, but there are many beautiful landmarks and country sides to enjoy as well.
There are so many historic places to see, places to eat, and places to shop, but we thought it would be a good idea to do a little more research.  Since we have a classroom full of wonderful information gatherers, we put them to work. They were almost as excited as we were about finding out about the biggest country in the world and the people that live there.
The information they gathered is going to be a great help on further trips. I just wish they could all come with us!

Happy New Year, 2017!

Happy New Year, friends!  
I’ve always talked about 2017 the year that I would more than likely retire and now  IT’S HERE!!!!
Have you made your New Year’s resolutions? I’ve given up making them since they last about a month or so…  Of course, I always want to be a better  person and make healthy changes but I decided a few years ago if I can adopt a mantra and live by it – then I’m more successful in achieving it and living by it! I just want to have a healthy and happy year filled with more laughter and more memories than I can count and more down time!  What about you?




This year’s Mantra?
