Herb garden awakens!
Mar. 13 is average last frost in Dallas, and the garden centers were jumping this week.
Redbud buds. Nature's welcome to spring.
HIs best side

I'm ready for color -- spring flowers!

I assume his name is short for Chewbacca because of his size, but it could be Chuy. He's the mascot of the Veterinary Medical Applications course at the Gilbreath-Reed Career and Technology Center, and perhaps practice patient.
EMT in training
EMT training in the Health Science Cluster at the Gilbreath-Reed Career and Technical Center in Garland, with an EMS in-class stationary vehicle complete but for wheels. This cluster also includes practicums for CNA (Certified Nursing Assisting), Dental Assisting, Pharmacy Technician, each with its own state-of-the-art lab, classrooms, and equipment. The students are so excited about this facility and the programs, they fairly bubbled over with information for visitors at this week's open house..
Fashions Design classroom at the Garland ISD's Gilbreath-Reed Career and Technology Center. The new facility serves students from the seven high schools with 1-, 2-, and 3-year programs in an astonishing variety of fields -- 90 courses in this one gorgeous structure.
