Wanna hear a joke about pizza?

Never mind, it’s too cheesy.

Happy Friday, everyone!

the view from here

This is the view last week from Devil’s Punchbowl, and across the way you’ll see Cape Foulweather, all fogged in. I think it’s gorgeous, no matter what the weather. We had relatives with us and went to the observation deck and the gift shop, where you’ll find the best view. Not the day we were there! You couldn’t even see the ocean, it was so socked in. Wait, look, waves? Look close in, we told them, OK, right there! Ah, ocean!

Then whoosh — a bald eagle flew by, close in, then… gone and off into the fog. Very cool surprise. Eventually the fog rolled back out, and there was the ocean.

Hope you’re enjoying your summer, with all of its surprises.

Have a great summer, kids!

I hope everyone has a lovely summer. Read, read, read, play, play, play and maybe (with permission from an adult, and help if you need it) you could try making some cookies?


– Mrs. R

Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies

1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 teaspoons vanilla

Add the first 4 ingredients in a saucepan.

Bring to a rolling boil, and boil for 1 minute. Stir in the next 3 ingredients and drop onto wax/foil paper. Let cool until set.

This video is cracking us up in technology class this week.

Mr. Rawley found that video for us, and says, “That’s the first personal computer I ever used. Wrote my first game on it in 1980 or so.”

We are not old.

Have a great Thursday and here’s to 10 more days of school…

It has been a great school year, but I know we’re all ready for summer. Especially these two in the picture, ha.

Have a really good rest of the week, kids.

Whales! and poem of the day

And the poem of the day, just for you…

“I’m Glad the Sky is Painted Blue”

I’m glad the sky is painted blue,
And the earth is painted green,
With such a lot of nice fresh air
All sandwiched in between.”
