Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho...

It's back to work I go!

Oh how I have enjoyed my Spring Break!  Tomorrow I head back though after my two glorious weeks off.  I know my kiddos will have lots to tell me!  Some of them had signed up for the Field Trip Frenzy, Mad Scientist, Hunting, etc. classes that were offered during the first week of break.  One student was going on a cruise and another was going to go camping.  So, in my plans for the day, I HAD to leave some time for them to share with us what they did.  

This evening, I've been busy finishing up some laundry, picking out my outfits for the week {still gotta decide which I'll wear tomorrow}, getting my snack/lunch ready, etc.  My teacher bag is already packed!  The bigger the bag, the more stuff I find myself cramming in it!  LOL

Now, to decide if I need the turquoise or the pink purse for tomorrow.  More than likely, I'll be in a PINK mood!
I'm SO LOVING spring colors again!

So, do you get your clothes ready the night before?  Clothes for the whole week?  Or just grab-n-go in the mornings?  I use to do the grab-n-go but in my old age, I have to be more organized than I use to be. LOL

Gearing Up for Week 2 and Giveaway!

What a fabulous first week of Spring Break in the mountains!

 Our cabin was so nice and relaxing!


The hot tub in the morning and the evening, and sitting by the cozy fire at night was amazing!

Miss Maggie Bleu enjoyed her first vacation too...the long drive, though, not so much!

And we got to spend time with our youngest son, DIL, and grandbaby!
Now I'm all rested up for my 2nd week of Spring Break which will consist of cleaning and painting on the house, lunch dates with friends, and a massage!

Gotta get geared up for TEST PREP MODE when I return to work~!


I have not forgotten about my 200 follower Giveaway!  Be watching in the next couple of days for info!!!

Hat Day Cut Short!

At our school, third graders enjoyed activities this week for Dr. Seuss and Read Across America.  However, today we didn't get to have all of our Dr. Seuss "Hat Day" activities.  We had planned so many activities around Reading, Math, and other subjects but that was cut short due to severe weather.  We dismissed school two hours early and spent some of the morning in "duck and cover" mode.


So here's what we did get to do...  some of our Cat in the Hat reading activities , some of our Hat Day Math activities, and make our Cat's Hat snack.  We've enjoyed a fun Seuss-tastical week, despite the Hat Day disappointment. 


Hope you all had a great Seuss-tastical week!  Those of you that are in the path of storms too, stay safe!  Praying for you all!

Blessings,
