I love connecting with Farley Over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade. I love seeing how everyone else is doing, too!
Listening: OK...no more football since I started...now the Twilight Zone! Much more fun! Love the twists and turns of the plots!
Loving: the time off! We have stayed up late and woke up late! I got a new mattress and let's just say...I sleep so much better! Loved the card games...Wii competitions, shopping expeditions, movie watching, cleaning and purging our bedrooms and closets of years of memories... Loving my hubby and I going out to eat on New Year's...loving that all my kids were home for a week together...loving that we spent some great family time with my sister and her family...love these pics of today's water park fun...(forgive the hair...)
|My sister and I...love the time together and the talks we have had! I am so grateful!|
|My niece...we went down the slide and were experts at the lazy river!|
|My nephew is a cutie, petutie! He only wanted me to go down the slide with him! My heart is so full!|
|Here are 3 out of my 4 kiddos with their cousin! What a great day filled with fun and family!|
Needing: To finish some holiday STEM packs, but I am waiting for some fun new clip art that might be showing up from Graphics From the Pond! I love Mel's work! I have almost everything done...maybe I need to get back to work...been playing too much! It has been a fun and eventful break! It is almost over...
My word is appreciation. I have to remember to be appreciative of people and events around me! Appreciative of the learning that takes place in my classroom. Appreciative when I have a special moment with my family...I have to see the little things around me and be thankful for them...appreciative!
I am so appreciative of TPT this year! My product sales have been pretty good...steadily climbing...finding more ways to add great science activities into my classroom and into my store. TPT has helped me provide some help to my two daughters in college and even helped me not put our Christmas presents on the credit card! I don't feel so scared about not having enough money to pay all of the bills. I also am appreciative of TPT getting my creativity going! I love finding great ways to integrate STEM and stations into my FOSS lessons and TPT keeps me thinking. I love being able to do that when so many teachers are having to present their lessons out of a scripted book! Appreciative! That is what I feel!
Happy New year blogger friends and thanks for stopping by! I am almost done with a freebie...stop on back!
