Numbers 0-10 and Goodbye to Some Family History

My class and I have been working hard on numbers 0-10.  I introduced ten frames and tally marks previously, and I wanted to put it all together.  That lead me to make our Numbers 0-10 book.  For each number, we wrote the numeral, drew pictures that matched the number, made a ten frame, made tally marks, and wrote the number word.  This project took quite a few days, but it looked great when it was done!

On a completely different note, I got a frantic phone call from my mother today.  We were having a great time putting up our Christmas tree and the phone rang.  My mom was crying and all I thought of was my grandma who went into the hospital last Sunday with pneumonia.  Turns out their garage was on fire.  My parents live on the farm that my dad grew up on.  There are so many outbuildings and trees that could have burnt down, not to mention the farmhouse.  Thankfully, the only casualty was the garage and my dad's truck.  My dad told me later that the fire almost reached the barn {The barn is my absolute favorite thing on the farm.  I even planned my wedding around that barn.}  My brother is a sheriff's deputy and was on duty when the 911 call came in.  The dispatcher sent him out right away.  I can't imagine what his thoughts were as he was driving out there.  I am so thankful that my parents are ok, and that this happened during the day.  It could have been devastating.  My dad is going to take pictures for me tomorrow.  I know I will be sad to see something that has a lot of family history gone.  I still picture my grandpa's truck parked right where my dad's truck probably was.  Thanks for listening {reading?} about my scare of the day.  I know it doesn't have anything to do with teaching, but I needed to get that out.
