First Week...

The new school year began for me this week, even though I have been working on my room for a few weeks.  I have been getting things ready, even though I do not put much on the walls because I like to do this with my kinders.  I even set my calendar wall up with my kinders.  I want them to have ownership of what is in our room and know where they can find things because "we" have put it there.  One thing we did this week was read The Kissing Hand--I am sure many of you do this with your kiddos, so this may be a little late, but you can have it anyway! 


I am not sure where the wordage came from because I have had it FOR.EVER!  I just put it in a different format, a border, and  a little simpler.  I forgot to take a pic of the finished product, but you will get the idea...  I put paint on my kinders hand and put the hand print in the open area and then put paint on a finger and placed it on the hand twice to make a heart.  I will try to post a pic next week because I a kinder leave early that day and his isn't finished yet.

School stuff...

Thank you Amy Lemons for making the adorable sign!

I promise, (on Friday) I sat down to work on school stuff, but I HAD to check facebook (maybe I shouldn't have) because I was distracted.  But then I went to pinterest to look for school stuff---that is doing school work, right??  I went to have the truck serviced and started reading my book again--oh no.  I do LOVE Kristen Ashley and her wonderful books, but they distract me.  I can work with music in the background (prefer it) and I can even work with a movie or TV show on, but it is hard to work while reading a book--and COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE to think of work when reading one of her books!  So, I had to set goals for myself and I did make  labels for my student binders--nothing fancy, but you can have them.

 Then we had friends over on Saturday and here it is Sunday and we have a graduation party to go to...
So, 
I didn't get my sale started on TpT  early enough---I will be doing that today and extending it a few days, so I would LOVE it if you could check out my stores. But, if you want the addition 10% savings, stop by today or tomorrow!

I am also having a sale over at my other store.

Have a great weekend--back to work tomorrow.

I'm Back...

I was MIA, but I am back...I think I lost a month!  We had the wedding and it was wonderful, minus a few bumps, but we got through them.  
Look closely and to the left and you can see two of my teaching buddies.  Mrs. Dintelman in pink, Mrs. Wills with the orange purse, and Mrs. Knight in the black and white shirt next to them.  Love those guys!

Close up of the newlyweds!

Me and hubs--I look kind of...maybe I cried a little before the wedding and a lot during it...maybe
Hubby might need to read my books, he is looking a little stressed... 

My three boys are on the left--Tyler, Devin, and Eric.  Michaela is in front and her brothers, Jacob and Colin (these are my sister's kiddos).


The wedding was awesome and the first dance was even more wonderful and THANK GOD it is over and hopefully the drama that went with it!  So how did I get through it and not loose my mind??  Well...

I spent some time venting to my sister and my BFF and A LOT of time discovering Kristen Ashley's books.  They are very addicting and takes me to that "calm" place.  Has anyone out there read these books?  Let's just say it kept my mind stress free while reading.  I guess reading about shootings, kidnappings, and HOT alpha males sweeping in the save their woman worked for me...

But enough of that, or I will need to go purchase the 2nd book in the Rock Chick series and I told myself that I had work to do and could not purchase it until I updated my blog, my student blog, and my class website.  I have a lot of work to do!
Now I can check my blog off that list!  I have a feeling this was the easiest on the list...
