One of our projects this week was given by the fabulous Hadar!!
She posted this a little while ago, and of COURSE I had to do it!!
(I just LOVE his smile on this one!!)
(look at how intent they are working...lol)
I love them!!
Although, I didn't think through the background choice I guess...I should have reversed the colors. But I wanted to do orange and black since those are our school colors...lol. Didn't think about when black hair was going to be on black background...oh well...you live and learn, right???

With her tracers, you get a few different variations of the writing part - but as we were brainstorming things to write, I realized that my kiddos needed something different, so I created a different version of the writing -

You can use them for End of Year or Beginning of year, so I might do it both!!
I'm interested to see how Reagan does her writing portfolio for the year with the kids - my goal next year is to save all these fun cute things we do and somehow send them home with the kids at the end of the year - do any of you do that?!?!
I'd love to see how you do it!
On a sadder note...
Here is what my room looks like...
That's 1/4 of my boxes....
How BORING does my room look now??
I'm mean golly - it's so sad looking :(
But do you see that tall book shelf of books??
Those are my picture books - and I have THREE of those tall bookshelves FILLED with books that I have to pack - and that's not including the rest of my stuff.
(But I still have my quilts up! ha!)
Why am I already packing when I have 8 days left??
Because I have SO MUCH stuff...seriously. I have about 12-15 of those bins already, and probably need about 6-10 more -ugh!!
But on a happier note!!
Today I got my May Birchbox!!
wrinkle cream, perfume, hair restoration conditioner, ans some super pretty coral color nail polish!
I am super excited about the nail polish!!
For my toes...lol..since we all know I don't' have any fingernails! Maybe that could be on my Summer bucket list?? To stop biting my nails??
Click here if you wanna check it out - best part is, everyone gets something different!!
And ONE more side note - Amber just made me spend more money!! lol
But I did really well!! I only spent $5!! lol..I had to stock up on arts and crafts books - after almost 10 years of teaching, I have TONS of the "important" books - now it's time to get the "fun" books...and you know, glyphs and "following directions" books are still academic, right?! lol
And I have to leave you with a funny...
I was reading to A in bed tonight, we were reading a Bethlehem book...we get to the baby Jesus...
"Mommy, who is that?"
"That's baby Jesus."
"Aww....baby Cheese-it! He's my friend!!"
There you have it. She knows that Cheese-It is her friend.
