Y’all. Harper just created this game to help Annabelle learn to read. Just grabbed a sharpie, marched upstairs and came back five minutes later with this game and, well, I’d have to call it a full-blown lesson plan. Some of the cups have single letters and others have short word endings like -ig or -at so she can put them together and make words. I cannot get over it. Harper said she remembered doing something similar in kindergarten and wanted to help since Annie is super frustrated that she “can’t read like sister.” They love each other so much and are so sweet. Well, most of the time anyway. 😭😍😭😍

Family fun day began with lunch and shopping at the American Girl store and bistro. The girls had such a great time and felt very fancy. (PS: I never owned an AG doll and am not quite sure how I became this mom. I’m not mad. Just a little poorer. 🤣)

This is officially my favorite room. We built our house almost three years ago and the front room/entryway never quite looked right to me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s gorgeous, two stories and you can see all the way into my living room and our slate fireplace (my second favorite thing). But it wasn’t until the last month or so that I got motivated to make it cute and now it fulfills all my Pinterest-fueled dreams. We still need some sort of rug but I adore the ikea picture ledges that hold all our favorite memories and the girls’ drawings as well as Delta themed artwork from @katttnesss and photos of our hometown. There are Mississippi inspired touches of cotton and magnolias and the blanket ladder made by my beautiful friend @tiffany.weatherford. It’s the perfect place to sit and read and watch the girls play out front with their friends. It’s everything I love all in one room. The rest of my house (and life) may be a mess, but at least when i stand in here, I can pretend I’m a Pinterest mom who has it all together. 🤣

At 10 a.m. today, more than 100 students walked out for 17 minutes in response to the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Fla. The gathering was led by Alanna Miller (11) and Anika Shah (11) with Katie Silverman (12) who spoke about her personal experience with the Parkland shooting. It began with powerful speeches, a song by members of CSHS choir, a butterfly release to symbolize each victim and ended with a moment of silence. Media were not allowed on campus but there was a CBS Dallas helicopter live-streaming the event above campus. Pictures taken by Madeleine Bunten (12).
“We’re extremely proud of our student body right now,” Shah said. “I think we had a really great turnout and we’re just really happy with how it went. This is all to honor the 17 lives lost, and we have to remember to keep this conversation going. We can’t forget what’s happening here, and students need to get involved.”

I believe in the power of words and especially those that come from my students as they are the most intelligent, passionate, brave people I know. I stand with them in the belief that the violence experienced at Stoneman Douglas should never happen again. #neveragain #historyhasitseyesonyou @slcdragonmedia


I’m obsessed with my Valentine’s flowers from my dad. I want to keep this bouquet in my house forever, there’s just so many gorgeous colors.

Lucky me. Nearly nineteen years after our first date, he still asks me out on a Friday night.

Abby put this HUJI app on my phone and I kinda love it. But not as much as I love the nonsense of after hours work nights and my incredibly hardworking kiddos. #deadlinessuck #doallthethings

I’m calling it. Best commercial of the night.

The loves of my life are heading to the daddy daughter dance tonight at The Marq. I loved doing their hair and shopping for their dresses. I do not love thinking about how soon it’ll be homecoming and prom with dates instead of daddy. 😭

It’s so wonderful to have students like @juliannesyu who just get it (and get me). They not only present me with amazing, thoughtful gifts, but also wise words and new ideas. And though she doesn’t know it, her quiet dedication to her craft and her team shows me that not all is lost in my classroom detritus of paperwork and deadlines and gradebooks and bad days and stress. I don’t think anything I’ve done has made her a better writer, she’s just a natural. But I know for sure she’s made me a better adviser.
