Friday Fragments, Episode #162
It's the first Friday Fragments of the regular season of NFL football, and I am feeling football fragmenty. Thanks for stopping by. [To learn more about Friday Fragments, click on the tab above.]
*You may or may not know (I didn't.) that when a team wins the Super Bowl, the NFL kicks off the season by throwing a FREE "Block Party" for the team's city. Today, the festivities officially started in Green Bay this afternoon with a live, outdoor concert featuring Maroon 5, Kid Rock, and Lady Antebellum. It's 7pm now, and a newscaster just described the scene as "Packer Pandemonium."
*Mr.4444 and Kyle are going to the game. Kendall is just going to the block party. I'm staying home (I enjoy a quiet house.), but I have to admit to wishing I was there, on some level--I like Packers Pandemonium a lot.
*I wrote an email excuse for Kendall to leave school early today. "Please excuse Kendall at 11:30am today. She will be participating in a family ritual." The reply was: :)
*Our sixth grade students have little awareness of 9/11 since they were only toddlers when it happened. They don't truly understand the significance of the Twin Towers (as symbols) being attacked. I don't mean this facetiously when I say that when I teach them about it, I'm going to use Lambeau Field as an example. I'm certain that will hit home for most of them: Twin Towers is to America as Lambeau Field is to Green Bay.
*I'm sorry I have not visited your blog or replied to your comments (though I've read them all) this week. I'm a teacher--It's been crazy busy this week. I am loving it, though; being around the energy of eleven-year-olds is wonderful, really.
*The fighter jets just flew over our house on their way to Lambeau (That never gets old--I love it!), and that's my cue...
Now it's your turn! Leave your Friday Fragments link here, and enjoy the party!
