Oh My Aching Back!

Oh my Goodness!  Last week I hurt my back and it was sore for days!   I just bent over to pick up my daughter and pain all over my lower back!  My son said I smelled yucky for days... I wore those icy hot patches for days!  But I finally got some things done and feeling better! Yeah for me!

I have made a few new things and finally finished my Sight words Packet!  Yeah!




I have made a new set of alphabet for you beach themed classroom!  I have a alphabet and number line! Go check them out!  They are cute!  I am still super undecided on what theme am I going to do!  I can't seem to make a decision!  I thought about black and white with pop of colors!  or change everything to a beach theme!  That is why I made these new sets!   ugh...... I can't make up my mind!  Anyone else have this problem?

Anyways ....  Love ya!

Five for Friday!

Happy Friday!  Yeah... my second day of SUMMER!  I thought it would never happen! Seriously... we had the most workdays after school was out ever... 6 of them!  You heard me six workday!  What?  Crazy... I only worked 3 of them and I was getting bored....!  I am linking up with the awesome Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

I love playing games on my phone....  terrible habit this summer but so much fun!  Here is my one right now.  I can’t seem to stop myself lately!

I have been reading some books already!  Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors.  I need to find some new ones!  Any suggestions??  I am reading this one right now!

I have been pinning like crazy already with many ideas for the classroom.. You’d think we could just leave it all summer but nope!  We talk about and plan for the next year!  Anyways.. I am working on organizing and purging my crap stuff!  I liked this pin from a great organizing blog and just cute stuff!  Click on picture to take you to this wonderful blog!  I thought this was pretty smart!

I am obsessed with the idea of spray painting all my baskets one color… yep, you’ve seen the pins on Pinterest!  I will paint them black mostly but really want to try a few metallic one too!  Anyone know if they last… just wondering!  It has to be better than the million different colors I have!  Hmm….

Have you tried this stuff?  Really… you need too!  It is good!  It is crispy and juicy on the inside!  My kids even eat this!  Yep… we had it for dinner tonight and I would have taken a picture if I hadn’t been stuffing my face! All well!  If you like fried chicken this is pretty close!

 

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!  Bring on the summer!

Enjoy!

I have survived!



I don't know about everyone else but I am so wiped out!  The last full week was a struggle..... so tired!  The last day of school was a FULL Day!  I mean really all day!  It felt like a forever!  Hugs to all the kiddos and then done!  phew..... !  Did I celebrate the last day with a tasty beverage.... You bet!

I am looking forward to reading and playing with my kids!  I am going to be doing some posts about keeping my toddler busy!  I hope you all will be joining me with your tips and ideas to share.  She is much busier than my son and into everything....  Then she is bossy to her brother!  I find it pretty funny most days!  We are going to try to potty train this summer.... Yikes!

I need some eagle eyes out there and someone to give me an honest opinion about my newest product... It a sight word packet and I just can't let go of it yet!   So.... Leave me a comment with your email and you can be my helpers!  Thanks to you very much!!!

Happy Father's Day to my Awesome hubby and Daddy!  
We love you!

New Blog look and a Freebie

I love my new blog look!  Yeah!  Thanks to Megan Favre at A Bird in Hand Designs!!  It was easy and fun!  I love it! 
5 More Days….. I think I can… I think I can!!!  It has been a long year with challenges but they have grown so much!  I am starting to plan for next year and looking forward to this summer!
I am going to do some blogging about my toddler… and how I try to keep her busy this summer!  That should be a chore!  I hope to also get my son motivated to read all summer… 9 year old boys are not into reading so bribing him is the only way! 
I made this end of year or beginning of year bulletin board set in celebration of my new blog!  I hope you enjoy it and leave me a comment!  Click on picture to download!

Have a wonderful day!

Five for Friday


Yeah! Finally Friday… I know it has been a long week when my own child comes into my room at 10:20 pm being a goofy kid and I start to tell him to put his clip down!  He looked at me like I had lost my mind and laughed!  AHHH…  I don’t think I can make it until June 13th!

My mom helped me finish Kinsley’s room finally!  It only took 2 years… all well.  It is a work in progress.  We made the elephant hair bow holder and I love it!  The polka dot chair is her favorite place to sit!

My baby turned 2 on April 30th!  She is a mess!  She loves to dance, read, be bossy to her brother, go outside and be sweet!  She is tiny but so LOUD!  We are so blessed she came into our family!

Thanks to all the Teachers out there!  You are awesome and loved!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Indoor Recess one day this week with Cosmic Yoga!!  Thank goodness for this life saver because we got ready to go outside and wham it was raining cats and dogs!  I thought we may need an ark to home!

Last week I got to be just mom to my oldest and go on a field trip with him! I loved just being mom and having him all to myself!  It was nice to be able to talk without the bossy pants almost 2 year old yelling at us…he he!  Then we got home by 2 o’clock with the little one to play outside!  I love it!

This is my classroom window I painted last week!  I wanted it to look like a stain glass window.  I outlined everything in black and it is very colorful!  This is just regular school paint and it comes off easily!  So go ahead and paint!

This was the book we used this week!  It is from Hubbard’s Cupboard!  I have used this site for years for all the fantastic ideas and booklets!  My kids loved coloring these and re-reading them again and again!  Click on the picture to go to the site! Enjoy!

The Egg hunt could have been a disaster but indoor egg hunts due to rain are still a blast!  We hid them all over the room and wham crazy children have fun!  I do have numbered eggs….  each child has number they have to find!  They only pick up the ones with their number on them!  It is great to watch them help each other!  I have done the egg hunt many ways but this is the best one so far!

Happy Easter Everyone!  I am looking forward to spending time with my family and my mom who is coming to visit!  I plan to enjoy every minute of this break!

Five for Friday *Welcome Spring*

 

Welcome Spring! I am so glad to see you! I am loving the weather here right now! Eighty degrees and not humid….LOVE it! So to usher in spring in my classroom I painted the window! I paint my window in my classroom all the time!  It is a great way to brighten up the room!  I just use tempera paint and wipe it off!  This time I wanted it to look like a stain glass window!  I painted the kite and clouds first then the black outline!  The last part was the blue….  by that time my class was mesmerized!

Her first pigtails!!!  I call them pig puffs because her hair is so curly!  She loves her pretty hair!  hehe…..Love it!

I have 9 more days until spring break!!! That seems like a lifetime from now!  I have plans to paint and hang out with my mom!  She is coming to visit that week so it will be fun!  I hope to finish my daughters room.  I have one side gray and tried a pink but never have liked it!  Here is the side I love!  I plan on putting up shelves and a trip to Hobby Lobby to finish the other side!  I will share the before and after when I get done!
