Open house April 11th

We had Open House this week at our school. It was quite a crazy week. We had our weekly baseball practice on Tuesday, Wednesday we attended my Aunt's Celebration of Life ceremony, and then Thursday was my daughters 2nd Birthday and Open House. We had her birthday party today. It was fun and successful, but I am glad it's all over with now!

Here are some pictures of my room. We focused on rocks and minerals as we just ended this unit.
