ASU students have the whole month of December off for their winter break. Mrs. O'Grady stayed with us for a little longer than others but had vacation plans already made for the rest of the month. She flew out to Vietnam on Saturday, Dec. 9th and will be there for two weeks. Then, she is not sure because of the volcano if she is going to Bali or Thailand. Then, she ends her trip with a week in India. She has promised to take pictures and share all about her adventures when she returns. I told her we would try to take as many pictures as we could as well. She will return January 17th.
This week starts off with a fun trip to Tolmachoff Farms. Tuesday, we get to harvest our veggies from the garden. Finally, on Friday we have a special visit from Mrs. Tracy, who is going to do an exciting lesson with them called the Marshmallow Challenge. It's going to be loads of fun this week!
