The [bad] Call

I just got a call from Encore and they said that they are unable to get the book : ( He said they are all sold out and aren't supposed to get anymore copies.

So, now I have two choices:
1) Find a completely new book and go back to Encore in hopes of being able to buy it
2) Try and buy Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with the Mexican Hat Dance elsewhere(like Amazon or Barnes and Noble).

Not sure which I'm going with, but I'm seriously debating just going with a different store. I mean, I love Encore and I get the teachers discount there, but it's SO hard to find the books....

I'll keep you updated,

Final Mexico book....

Hi all!
I just wanted to do a quick post to let you all know that I ordered my final Mexico book that I needed today. It's called Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with the Mexican Hat Dance. It is by the same authors as Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Samantha and Lola, a book that I used last time for my Ireland session. I'm hoping that it will come in before the session starts. However, it shouldn't be a problem because I have about 3 weeks and Encore(where I ordered it) tends to have orders in pretty quickly.

As far as college news is concerned, I have none : ) Lol! I'll be sure to let you know as soon as I hear something.

Back to soon?!

Yes, I AM back so soon! Lol! I just wanted to announce that I recieved my acceptance letter from Castleton State College today in the mail! So, that's 2 down, 2 to go. I will definitely keep you all posted for as long as you're interested(or at least seem interested : P).

Thanks for all the support and kind comments!

I am so sorry that I haven't been around very much lately. As far as my blog goes, it probably seems like I've dropped off the side of the planet! Lol...please forgive me!!

Anyway, Hannah's READ Program is on the winter hiatus before it starts up again in January. I actually just had a meeting with the principal of the WRS school(where I have done and am going to do Hannah's READ Program). I have NEWS!! I will be starting Hannah's READ Program back up in January!!! YAY!

We return from Winter Break on January 4, 2010. The sign-up letter will get sent home with the kids on Tuesday, January 5. It will be due by Friday, January 8. The program will then officially begin on Tuesday and Wednesday, January 12 and 13. These are the days when the first book/actvity will be sent home and I will start "teaching" in the classrooms again. All materials are due back to me by Tuesday and Wednesday, February 9 and 10. February 22-26 is our February Break, so I can't have the celebration the week following the end, like this time. So, Monday or Tuesday, February 22 or 23, I will send home the RSVP for the celebration. The celebration will be held on Monday, March 1. It is a little different this time, but basically the same. Sorry that this is so much information being thrown at you all at once!

On Thursday, February 11, I will be presenting to WRS' PTA. This is a follow-up from last spring when I presented. I have so much to update them on now! Lol! This presentation will also double as the presentation I have to do to meet the honors program requirements. Mr. Streeter will come to it, too. It has to be a 20 minute Smartboard or Powerpoint presentation.

On other topics, a lot of you probably know this already(because it was too exciting NOT to tell you!), but last Thursday I got a was telling me about my acceptance to Colby-Sawyer College!!!!

Now, this is not necessarily my first choice, but it is the first school I've heard from out of the 4 I applied to. I also recieved the Presedential Scholarship which entails a $48,000 four-year scholarship : ) This means I definitely have $12,000 covered every year, if I choose to go there!

Just wanted to keep everyone updated and to know that I am still here! Does anyone else have any exciting news to share with me? : ) I'm all ears!!
Talk to you again soon(yes, I will be trying to return to the blogging world)!
