I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Wait for it...

We did WHAT on a Thursday night?

If you were to ask me about my Chicago bucket list (which, actually, is non-existent), going to the taping of Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me would be on it (if, again, it existed).

Check that one off!

Though some of my all-time favorites like Paula Poundstone and Tom Bodett were not present, it was a pretty entertaining evening. Listening to the broadcast on NPR today was definitely a deja vu experience. It was also interesting to hear what parts they deleted and what they kept. For example, a whole rant about Jeb Bush's secret guacamole recipe as well as jokes (at length) about the people in Oregon did not make the final cut.

dining options in downtown Chicago = awesome
That. Was. Awesome!!! (I apologize - it's hard to contain my enthusiasm for public radio.)

Friday morning was a little rough...but an extra cup of coffee never hurt anyone...

P.S. The 6th graders took a grammar quiz on Friday - it was on appositives. The final prompt (which you can see in the photo below) asked them to create their own sentence using an appositive that was about school. This was, obviously, my favorite response - she even used the appositive correctly!:

Ms Foyle, our LA teacher, is the best teacher at our school.

Happy weekend-ing everyone!
