Thank you

Thank you very much for the lovely classroom gifts.  I will be enjoying some yummy lunches with Mr. Stantial and Abby at Panera.  I can't wait to go to Barnes and Noble with Abby and buy some new and exciting books.  She loves to listen to me read her stories just like all of you do.  Abby and I will be going shopping in A.C. Moore for some crafty items to make too.  Thanks for being so kind, thoughtful and generous.  Happy New Year!

Thank you

Thank you for the beautiful pink flowers.  I love them and it was so thoughtful of all of you.
Abby Elizabeth Stantial was born on May 20th weighing 9.2 pounds.  That is also a special day because it is Mr. Stantial's birthday.  I miss all of you very much and have been talking to Mrs. Rich to find out how you are all doing.  Keep working hard my shining stars and before the end of the year, I will bring in Abby to meet all of you.
