The Bird has Landed

Welcome to my new blog page. I have decided to move the majority of my blogs over to blogspot to share with more family members and friends who did not have access to my other blog page.

As you can see, I have named my blog "Bird's Blurbs". Why this? It goes back to the day I married a Grabe. For the longest time I was something you pour over mashed potatoes rather than a Grabe. I finally used the theme of "Mrs. Grabe's Busy Bee's" in my classroom to help my students overcome this name minunderstanding. Eric's advisory students however, decided to call him Gray Bird and even named their advisory group The Gray Birds. I liked the sound of it. Mr. and Mrs. GrayBird.

When contemplating what to name my blog I just couldn't find anything that had an alliterative ring to it with my first name or my last name. I mean, Ellen's Echoes? Grabe's Gatherings? It just wasn't working for me.

So Bird's Blurbs it is. I hope you enjoy reading my blurbs. I will try to write more frequently, as I know I have slacked so far in 2008.

Please read, comment, and enjoy. I look forward to hearing from you!!!
