Boston and beyond...

When I started this blog over the weekend, I planned on posting this week about fairy tales, Earth Day and life in my classroom.  I never expected to have to write about another tragedy.  I live about two hours from Boston..... 3 hours from NYC...and an hour and a half from Newtown.  All sites of terrible things that have happened so close to me.  It is unthinkable, unexplainable and troubling.  I want to write that we will get through this... that we will come together once again, holding our loved ones closer, our hearts a little more torn.... but in a tribute to the strength and determination we have shown time and time again.  And we will.  But not now.  Right now, my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Boston . . .
