I can't believe May is here! The countdown to summer has officially begun! Check out my "Currently" from Farely and link up!
Listening to "We are Young" -makes me feel old! haha
Loving my new Chevy Equinox. After my Kia died I was sad but it was time to move on!
Summer cannot come fast enough. I am looking forward to sleeping past 5:30!
I would love love love one of those reallllly expensive swings sets where they come to your house and set it up. The reality is we will get one from home depot and spend 3 months trying to put it together ourselves.
We really do need a fence. Our house is on a corner lot, so needless to say our Monsters don't want to play "in" the yard they prefer to run in the road and play with the rocks!
My Summer Bucket List-I can't wait to bring the girls to the beach. I know, in advance, that it won't be relaxing and I won't be tanning! haha
The past few weeks have flown by! I have had open house, a girls' weekend, and my monsters have been getting up at 5 am-ahhhh. Just thought I would share the "1 more 1 less 10 more 10 less" practice sheet I created! Hope you enjoy! I had my firsties create spring flowers using their hundred charts! I tried to take a pic of the whole class but the sun wasn't cooperating!
I can't believe it's already April! When I first starting blogging I came across Farley's blog and every month she does a linky called, "Currently." It's a great way to meet and learn about different bloggers!
Finally found some time to link back up with Farley for her April Currently.
LISTENING:I love when I put my little monsters to bed at night. I bring the monitor downstairs and just listen to them talk to each other-not that I can understand any of it-I am secretly thinking "please just go to sleep" haha
LOVING: We have had a pretty rough winter here in the North East. The past two weeks have been so nice, the sun has been shining and the temperature has been close to 60 on some days-it just makes me happier! My little monsters love playing outside and it makes me look forward to spending the summer with them
THINKING: One of my best friends from college is getting married and next weekend is her bachelorette party. I am so excited to hang out with my college girls, but I have so much to do at work and home that I am stressing....I have the parents coming in for a cultural food celebration next week and open house the week after....
WANTING: I reallllly would love to go shopping for a whole new wardrobe. Since I had the girls I haven't really bought new clothes. There are so many cute shoes and dresses-I just want to spend a whole day shopping with no kids and endless money!
NEEDING: Many of you know the my very first car, SHAKIA, died. We still haven't figured out if we are going to lease or finance a car. When I go away for my girls' weekend, my hubby will be home with the girls without a car...so WE NEED A CAR
ADVICE: As I give this advice I want you to know that I struggle with comparing myself to other bloggers, spending endless nights staying up late creating products for my TPT store and thinking about what I should write on my blog..but I am going to try to set more realistic goals and set aside an allotted amount of time each week.
OMG...I woke up this morning to add my free spring banner and to my surprise I have finally reached 100 followers! YAY..Thanks everyone...I guess I have to figure out how to do a GIVE AWAY (any help would be greatly appreciated :o)!
Hope everyone is enjoying their spring break-it is going by way too fast!
Another great start to the week. What a crazy Monday. I woke up this morning thinking I had parent teacher conferences, but no that's next Monday (I wasted a nice outfit) and I had to reschedule all of Friday's conferences because we had a snow day, and to top it off I had my unannounced observation today. Ahhhhhhhh...it wasn't as stressful as I thought it would be-but glad it's over! Last Monday my car stalled in the middle of the highway-the transmission and the engine died --- so now we need a new car! I loved my kia :o( she gave me 10 good years-RIP ShaKia!
I guess Mondays just aren't for me. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.
Many of you have emailed me asking for more words to be added to my Sight Word Worksheets.
So after many months ---- I have finally finished parts 3 and 4! YAY. It may not seem like an accomplishment, but finding the time between work and the Monsters is tough! Especially since it's assessment, report card and conference time...STRESSFUL!
I have been MIA since October--SORRY. Going back to work and trying to keep up with my blog, my TPT store and the rest of my life .....ahhhhh... it was a little overwhelming. I give so much credit to all of those working mommies who can manage alllll of these things. But I am going to try and be more productive and organized. While trying to get back into my blog and running my TPT store I noticed I finally reached 100 followers at my TPT store...YAY!!!! To celebrate my entire TPT store is on sale and I've added a common core math freebie!
Wish me luck in trying to balance all of this fun stuff!
