1. Hippos can close their ears underwater. That is an ability I really wish I had. I hate getting water in my ears! (This fun fact provided by the guided reading book, “Amazing Ears.”)
2. One of our students walked back to school this afternoon to ask to use the bathroom. He said the lights and water were turned off at his house. Sometimes I forget that some of our kids have really hard lives.
3. Anya won Project Runway!!! I’m so happy!! She is awesome, kind, and has the coolest accent ever. I pretty much have a friend crush on her. I was so scared Josh was going to win…but no! Good triumphs over evil!
