We had our yearly frost last night and it left these beautiful patterns on the palmetto fronds. It would be interesting to investigate why this happens. Why this pattern? I enjoyed the view for a few brief minutes in the morning before the sun worked its magic.
Everyone knows I love to visit classrooms that are reading Olivia Brophie books! I recently visited a class in California via Skype and had a great time as always. Sometimes teachers send me photos from their side of the conversation. In this particular case, I discovered the classroom itself was overrun with frogs, something I couldn't see from my video.

Anyway, the class is only on chapter 4 of Pearl of Tagelus, so they have sooooo many adventures ahead of them!
