I have to tell you that I have had the best time meeting such wonderful
Sometimes in "real" school, people are so negative, jealous,
(I have this poster up in my classroom- and it seemed perfect for today- with my over-enthusiastic love of sharp pencils and my appropriately-enthusiastic love and appreciation of all of you! :)
I was so happy talking to Susanna, from Whimsy Workshop last night, I felt like we were meeting up and shopping and chatting together. All day I had been planning my art lessons using her fabulous art packet and thinking , "I KNOW HER!" :)
I cannot wait to print off her Sight Word Zoo books! SO excited to use these!
We went shopping for "Unique Junque" this weekend in Niagara Falls. Jeff and I stop at Antique Stores for fun to break up our trips- and see what we see. This time, my favorite treasure was a filthy Barbie leg. That's it. Just a dirty, dirty leg that a dog may have dug up and brought home. It was $1. I was so tempted because I thought the owner may just have so many questions as to why I bought it- especially if I had said, "I teach Kindergarten. This will be perfect. " But I didn't do it. I didn't even take a picture- but my description is spot-on- so you can just make your own picture! (That was a complete side track- I just felt the need to share since I was thinking of our shopping trip-)
Anyway, after that, we went to the Outlets- and into the Converse Outlet, where I kept thinking of Serena, from Magic Mistakes and Mayhem and her love of Chuck Taylors... :) They have tiny Chuck Taylor key chains, Serena! Send me your address!
I was thinking about Amber, at School is a Happy Place, going back to school and probably being so tired last night- cause I just tried to organize my room for a few hours and was exhausted- with no children there!
When I won Sara's (from Sara at School) Giveaway I was so excited to see my name! :) Her daughter did a GREAT job choosing the winner, by the way... and thank you, Sara! <3
I wanted to send spedies to Linda at Kinder Doodles because she used to live in Syracuse and actually knows what they are and misses them! (But it might be strange to receive meat in the mail from a stranger, maybe...) .
Dara Feldman shared her book with me, The Heart of Education, with me, about bringing joy, meaning, and purpose back to teaching and learning, and I am loving it.
I was THRILLED with the Liebster fun and to be featured on Sarah's blog FCS and Then Some.
I could go on and on and on. I am just a "Baby Blogger," and I am having such a wonderful time. Thank you all for being you and letting me be a part of your world! It is a really great one!
