Challenge Accepted…


Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge to benefit the ALS Association. What a great cause!

I was challenged on Monday evening by a 6th grade student of mine. How could I say “no” to such a bodacious request. Making memories is what it is all about.

I donned my science lab coat and googles and took the challenge last evening. It was (brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr) cold.





Notice I even used an ice bucket. LOL! Gotta keep it classy.
