Is your shopping done??

I hope the title made you laugh,
because if you said "yes" wellllllllll.......

I have bought one, yes I said 1 present so far.
And here it is.
In case you didn't know,
I live on an island in Florida.
This picture was taken on our local beach.
The man who took it goes to my church and he goes out EVERY morning 
and EVERY evening and takes a sunrise and sunset picture.
He posts them on facebook, sells them as pictures, and also makes a calendar every year.

So my purchase was his yearly calendar.
I know someone (besides me) who 
LOVES looking at his pics every day.
So I'm hoping that she will love the calendar.

What about you?
Is your shopping done?
What is something that you bought??

So while I'm still sitting around drinking coffee and being lazy on a Monday morning,
I made a little FREEBIE for you in our

Happy Monday!
If you've been hanging around here for any length of time,
you might remember when I used to do

Yep, I know, it's been a while.
Anyway, I have been feeling completely guilty for not getting it done.
I have wanted to change it for a while but just couldn't figure out what to do with it.

Our family has had a VERY ROUGH weekend
and after spending a lot of time in the scripture and in prayer over the last couple of days.....
this is what came out of it.
will be the new name of my FREEBIE Biblical packets.
They are basically the same format as the old ones,
but they feel new to me.
I hope they will be a blessing to you and your students.

This week's pack features Psalm 145:21.
God gave me this verse last Wednesday night during our church service.
But HE made it real to me this past weekend.

HE reminded me that when so many things can and do go "wrong" in our lives,
that we have the choice to praise HIM anyway.
HE is worthy of our praise, 
even when we are not getting our way.
My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.
Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever.
Psalm 145:21

Go make it a great Monday!!

Let's pretend like I haven't been missing

Normally I would apologize for my absence from my blog,
I am without excuse. 
So, I'm just going to pretend like I never left :)

Welcome to Wednesday and that means

Our Science Lab got a complete overhaul this year, 
and this is what we did yesterday.

We're on our Weather Unit this week,
so we made rain.
Container half full of water.
Cover the top with shaving cream (clouds).
Drop blue food coloring on top of the clouds
and look underneath
to watch it rain.

They LOVED it!!

Our First Full Week

It feels good to have our first full week behind us.
Y'all I have the SWEETEST class!!

After only being in school for 5 days, we had Open House!
What?! Why?!
I have no idea.....but you do what you have to do.
My pirate girl helping me get ready:)
Since we had just had Meet and Greet a few days earlier,
there was really nothing else to show them.

Attendance was TERRIBLE.
I'm sure they were wondering why they needed to turn around and come right back to school after having just met me.'s done.

The rest of our week was spent settling into routines and finishing up beginning of the year testing (STAR READING and STAR MATH).

Hoping that this week we can get down to teaching and learning:)
