Behold the Ageless Wonder
Today was one of my teammate's 40th birthday and we went all out to celebrate! The whole fifth grade wore black, each student (100 of them) made her a homemade card and we decorated her room with the cards, balloons, and birthday decorations. We also had a wonderful breakfast of fruit pizza made by another team member. She was not very excited for this day to come but let me just tell you, the woman looks smokin'! She's one of those women who could strut around and say, "Yea, I'm 40... check me out!" but she's too humble to ever say that (so I'll say it for her, lol). So my class decided to put a little extra pep in her step today. We came up with 40 different compliments about the birthday girl and attached them to Dum Dum suckers. Throughout the day the kids delivered them to her and #40 was a special note from me that told her what a wonderful friend she was and on the back I put "See... 40 doesn't suck!" That part was a secret from my kiddos since I'm always preaching not to use that word, haha, but it was too perfect to pass up. It was a big hit and she got a great laugh out of it all!
