Morning Messages

This week I've decided to put some full-size versions of my Morning Messages so you can see them more clearly and easily.  Also, I'm hoping to write a blog post about how I incorporate academics into every Morning Message.

MCAS Testing ~ Complete!

We had three days of state testing last week, and the kids worked so hard.  As I was walking around, I noticed several of them looking back in the story.  I really emphasized the importance of doing this during the test.  I'm so proud of my students that I made this graphic on Canva.

Dislocated Hip

My husband has had both of his hips replaced due to hip dysplasia (read more here.)  When you google this condition, most of the entries deal with dogs!

On Friday he was putting on his shoes when one of his hips came out of the socket.  He ended up calling 911 and ended up having the emergency room doctor putting the hip back in its socket.  In the meantime, I'm bringing him to see his orthopedic at the New England Baptist Hospital to see what the next step is:

In the meantime, he's supposed to use crutches and rest; and we're all waiting on him and giving him lots of attention.  I'll let you know what the doctor says next week.
