Friday night was a Time for Two Date Night at Journey. I had the opportunity to plan the event with Pastor Shawn, Carrie, Amanda, and Sue. It is always so fun to see the pieces of an event come together. The evening included dinner and a concert with Jonah Werner!
We had about 100 couples...25 tables!
I had the opportunity to cook for the first time in our massive industrial church ovens. These were the brownies for desserts...browine sundaes.
Carrie and I before the event about to start...she was my right hand for this event...she had a certain look for the evening in her head and worked hard to bring it all together!
Here I am explaining how we are going to serve the meal.

Thank you ladies for being the hands and feet behind the scenes of this event. I could not have done it without you. I had so much fun hanging out with you all in the kitchen...let's do it again sometime....I am always up for events!

As I have told my faithful blog readers before...some of my students know about my blog. Now they have began to use my little phrases and last week I heard one of my observant students say, "Ms. Pawlak...that is a blog worthy moment." Of course I agreed and decided that I need to do another school post to showcase some of the good days I have had teaching math!
Wow...look at the detail...this is from my honors Algebra 2 class. Whenever I see someone do super neat work on paper or one the board or make a great "connection statement" I will say, "It looks like we might be looking at a future math teacher of America here!" That line gets a few laughs.
Having some fun outside doing Inside-Outside Circle...a Kagan cooperative learning structure.
High Five...GREAT ANSWER!
I love moments like this...during my second period of the day I saw a post-its on my front board that I did not put there. So I looked closer and one of the girls in my first period class had left me a little note...
Talk about a deposit into my love tank!
My kids (aka my students) make the job fun...I love them too!

Christy decided to go crazy on the bobsleds and take photos during the ride. This is one of the "selfy" shots! She is so good at knowing where the cameras are on every ride. She would squeeze my arm when it was time to pose (do whatever funny thing we decided on) and then we had fun photos to look at after the ride.
on Main Street...looking similar as always...we live an hour away from each other yet when we meet up we tend to have similar outfits
A little blast from the past from my senior prom (she was a sophomore)...looking similar again!

She was so personable! Jodi read from her newest book which I probably will not get to start of a while but that is okay because Laurie and I own all of them and we wait for them to come out in paperback anyway. We learned that we have been saying her last name incorrectly (sorry Jodi)...we have now corrected ourselves .
I even got a picture with her...oh yes blog worthy moment indeed!
