Mardi Gras colors: purple, green, gold
Beads everywhere. Yes, the trees do look like this after the parades. They get caught in the limbs when thrown. In some towns and cities (including NOLA) you can see broken, faded beads all year long: just look up.
Today my class and I decorated the classroom door to participate in the school-wide contest. Winners get a king cake!
Students decorated the masks and I hung everything up during my planning period so they'll see it when they come in tomorrow morning. I think it brightens the hallway just about right! And this is the extent of my Mardi Gras for this year. I'll explain why later; so see you then.
