Just a small sampling of the authentic Mardi Gras beads I've got hanging around. My friend Tiffanie gave them to me last year after Mardi Gras. They lived in my car trunk until about a week ago when I finally dragged them inside my classroom. We made masks to celebrate in class, today, and I threw out beads to the kids who had their finished masks at the end of class! They seemed to enjoy it and so did I! Maybe next year I will apply to work on a float throwing out beads. Heh. Oh, and what shall I name the little dragon I found hidden in amongst all the beads? Isn't he cute??
This is an idea I got from another website. Thought it would be fun to attempt to capture my daily life during my last year (?? at least for a while??) here in America. Objective is to take some kind of photo of some aspect of my life every day and upload it here. I will try not to have any repeats!
