So I am hoping to keep it up and keep it going...even if i could lose a couple extra pounds by Friday would be awesome!!!

Thats my little...big accomplishment of the week so far.

Now I just want to touch upon a sensitive subject. We all have heard, watched and talked about the devestating tragedy from this past Friday. Today of course was Monday, and coming back into school was tough. Every morning my post-grad students (all whom have special needs) sit down and watch CNN Student News. And of course as expected they covered the story. One after one...3-4 students had to leave the room because they were so upset, including one who didnt even know it had happened because her mother had not spoken with her about it, her right and choice. But what was great is that they were all able to talk about how it made them feel, and even some were able to relate it to a loss in their own personal lives. Then as a group they each made a card that we will be sending to the school, or at least somewhere that they may be collecting for those in the school.

I also wanted to share a link to a fellow bloggers post.....National blogging day of silence.
