The one think I really wanted for Christmas were tickets for my kids to go the the Utah Symphony's performance of the Pixar songs.  And guess what?  Santa brought it for me!  I prepared for it by making packets for the kids (we brought the four oldest-kindergarten through sixth) that had each pixar movie cover, information to read about Pixar, the ABC's with Pixar characters and even some Pixar games in there.  We got dressed up fancy, went to a nice restaurant and then settled in the dark concert hall for one of the best nights I've ever had.  

I didn't realize how much I adore the soundtracks to these shows.  We were voting on the way home which show was our favorite and many of us couldn't decide.  If it comes to your town, GO!  I plan to if it comes to town again!

I Love Libraries!

If I ever become a ghost one day, you can bet I'll be haunting a library.  I just love seeing pictures of libraries and visiting them around the world.  These are a list of spectacular libraries that are now on my list...

Children's Museum

Have you been to Gateway discovery?  It is amazing.  My kids can spend hours there!

What is Grit

This came across my desk and I printed it out for my PhD vision board.  Did you know there are tons of studies out there about "grit?"  I had no idea.  A lot of my past inner city teaching co-workers have got this stuff!
