Maria said...

Hi Koralee ... Oh I LOVE your fabulous blue phone (it's actually right across from my comment box :D
The white Victorian-look phone belongs to Rachael. It's part of the "kids' collection" that's been left behind. It doesn't work anymore... I can't get a dial tone! I've kept it around because it's sooo cute.
Tomorrow's Martin Luther King Day, so we're off from school :D
I think we're getting a snow storm tonight!
Glad we'll be in for the day~
Have a sweet week with your students, Koralee! They must be getting excited about the Olympics too! ~Maria
ps. Thanks again for all the JOY you share with others~
