Spring Break, A Shout Out, and so much more!

The snow has stopped falling and the highways are clear (boo hoo....).  Today we head back to the OK panhandle for four days and then we come home again!

Over the break I had to time to do one of my favorite things.  I had time to stalk my favorite blogs! Whoot! And I found this giveaway! More than Math by Mo is having a 100 follower giveaway.  So hop over and check it out!

I am happy that I feel refreshed after the break. I am happy that I had a chance to see my family. I am happy to be going back to our house that is sort of a home, a temporary home, where our cat, Sam, is waiting for us.  And where my new toy er, teaching tool, er, ereader, is waiting for me! I can't wait to load it up!

Guess what? I also can't wait to see my Kinders and spend oh-too-many hours at school and dive into this "daily 5" thing. Yikes. Did I just say that?! I think that if I start now, I can master several areas of this by the end of this year and have a pretty good idea of how I want to begin implementation of it next year.

Speaking of next year, it's no secret I love my Kinders and I love the diversity of the community and I feel like God brought me here. But it is also no secret that I love my Kansas home and have tendered my resignation for the sake of economic responsibility and the sake of my children's happiness and well-being. So please, continue to hold us in your prayers as we seek the best things for our family. I am walking blind here, with no job secured and trusting it will open up.

Happy Spring everyone!


  1. I'm loving the new blog look! A-DORABLE! Good luck with the daily 5 and with all other areas of life right now. Sounds like you have a lot going on. If you ever need anything, let me know (


    1. Thanks! Your words mean so much. I didn't know I would become so attached to this blogging community so quickly!

  2. Good luck with daily 5. There was a blog book study last summer, it was great for ideas and thinking out loud. It could be a resource for you as you start. Good luck! (LOVE your blog.)

    1. Thanks! Daily 5 is truly the current "big thing!" and I am not sure how I am going to implement some of it, but I surely think the way to do it is to get started and then tweak and change. Glad you are back! Looks like Florida was lovely!
