True story. I had an IT guy come do some work on my office laptop and when he saw Dave on my wallpaper started spewing hate about him. I almost kicked him in the nuts and punched him in the throat.

Darryl Hannah “I was 11 and on a road trip with my family. I saw a truck with some baby calves on it and for about an hour I petted and kissed this one calf and he was kissing me. This man came up and I said, ‘Excuse me Sir, what’s this calf’s name?’ and he just said, ‘Veal, tomorrow morning at seven.’ ” “That was it. I could no longer disassociate the meal on the plate from the creature it had been.”
"Another activity we began doing this school year was "nature frames". I saw this idea when visiting a Reggio exhibit in Monterey in the fall. Simply place some old picture frames, without the glass or the back insert, on a flat surface. We then encouraged the children to collect nature items and arrange them within the frame. The kids had a blast collecting and arranging. It was a group activity so they had to all agree how it was to look."
I saw this before I signed in. I seriously had my legs crossed and my left hand on my face when I read this! LOL!
How do Readers know when to stop and jot? Nice image of an anchor chart on this topic. - My students often had confusion when it came to making their own annotations. Ideas! -JV
My version (17) - When I saw this on Pinterest I had to add it to my husband's 50th birthday board and then made it with 50 memories of our life together. So glad I did. He really appreciated it. #traceyvanlent
This is a true story of Mother’ s Sacrifice during the Japan Earthquake. After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward, and her two hands were supporting by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head. With so many
Side yard idea. Or personal alley space - wish I had thought of this when I lived on Moyamunseng in Philly! I had an alley just this size...that no one used and no one else saw except my two fellow peeps in the two apts below me...who would have loved it!
I wish I had thought of this when my kids were little! They would have loved it and I would have loved making them! Story Stones... what a "novel" idea! (THAT slogan is all mine!!!) -kris

Say It With A Card
Wish I had thought of this when my kids were growing up, maybe grandchildren some day:) Stepping stones with children's hands or foot prints is a nice way of allowing your kids to feel involved and leave their own mark on your garden as well as providing a small snapshot in time for you to remember and enjoy. @Amanda Cascarano
This was my mantra when I taught middle school art classes. Imparting courage in small, daily doses - nothing better.
This is Zoe. She was a teen mom after a were wolf (four years older) had a child with her. He left when he found out. On a full moon one night, he came back apologize. She refused, making him furious and he attacked her. By coincidence, and what Zoe believes fate, an agent was nearby to bring her to the agency for treatment. She gave birth right after. Her daughter was a were wolf as well, so Zoe had a print of her daughters paw tattooed behind her ear. She is in her 20s now, in the story.

(Haha. That has Daily Odd Compliment written all over it. So needless to say, I approve of your crush. And do otters really drown ducks for no reason? I’ve never heard that before. If so, this changes my entire opinion on them. Actually, that’s not true. I still think otters are cute and playful and fun. The last time I saw an otter, I wanted him to come closer to me, so I meowed at him. It didn’t work. True story.)
My dog is 14, and has had this blanket since he was a puppy. When I finished washing it to put it in the dryer, I left the room to answer my phone. Came back to this
