Watch the Eagle Cam!

I'm so EXCITED about this!  I'm not even taking the time to upload photos of this.  My aunt lives in Iowa and she called to tell me about this site. 

Go the  then click on "bird cams".  It will bring up a page when you can observe an eagle's nest LIVE.  She said earlier today one of the eagles brought a rabbit to the nest!  I checked a few minutes ago and of course it was sleeping, but at 36 degrees I would be too.

There a 2 eagles and they are nesting 3 eggs.  The eggs are expected to hatch around April 1.  How cool would this be for the kiddos at school.

The nest is in Decorah, Iowa.  You can read more facts on the webcam site. 

Hope you and your kiddos enjoy this!

I actually take showers!

I LOVE teaching K, the things that come out of their mouths can totally change my mornings.  They have an honesty that is unlike anything else in this world.  So here is a giggle for you.......

I normally spend way too much time wrestling with that lovely invention called the "flat iron", however on one particularly dreary morning I decided to forgo the struggle.

Now my hair will turn into something that resembles a scraggly damp mop when there is any amount of humidity/moisture in the air; no matter how incredibly flat I manage to get it.  So on this dreary morning I decided not to waste my time, but did not want to be a total "mop head", so I added my trusty standby of mousse and proceed to scrunch my mop head to squiggly perfection.

I left the house feeling rather pleased with my work even though I was dreading the yucky day.

As I stood in my door greeting the kiddos that morning,  one precious little tot came down the hall arms full with a tote bag, lunch box and jacket.... our eyes met......

I smiled and gave the usual "good morning".......he stopped dead in the hallway......eyes rather large......pointed at my lovely hair and with the cutest smile ever said...............

"Hey Mrs. took a bath last night."

Go ahead laugh.....that is Kindergarten at it's finest.   But between you and me................

I actually prefer the shower.
