It's May 1st! Where did the school year go??? Only five weeks to go and my first year as a first grade teacher will be a thing of the past...a memory...a glorious memory! I've had so much fun!! I'm so blessed that my new campus is full of people who love what they do and come to work with a smile on their face every day.
Here's the break down -
Listening - My husband and four year old daughter are watching The Croods for the second time this week.
Loving - EOS. You've seen it. You've probably wondered, "What on earth is it?" It's lip balm in an egg shaped container. Go figure. But it's awesome. My favorite is the mint flavored one in the green egg. So far. There are plenty more to try.
Thinking - My 17 year old got an award tonight for reading the 6th most novels this year at his high school - 86! My 15 year old just became gainfully employed. His first job is at McDonald's. My four year is going to her first sleep over at her BFF's house tomorrow, and my baby will be 2 years old in six days. I think math will be her thing. She can already identify an octagon, rhombus, and many more shapes! They.won't.stop.growing.
Wanting - The Whole Brain Teaching National Conference is FREE. It's in Louisiana in June. My husband doesn't want me to go alone. I really wanna go...I need a travel buddy.
Needing - This pic is for real, people! I just snapped it. I need a manicure intervention...last weekend came and went and I just couldn't fit it in. Fingers crossed for this weekend.
Surprise - I've expanded my list of favorite blogs to include A Day in First Grade. For the longest time, I mostly read the blogs I discovered intially. Probably the same ones many of you do. The ones with a massive following (rightfully so), but I made a decision to expand my options. I just knew there were many more gifted teachers with inspiring blogs that were worth REALLY following. If you haven't stopped by Kristen Smith's blog you should! She's awesome.
P.S. I've gone social. Memories Made in First now has a Facebook Page. I'm gearing up for a summer of give-aways. Don't miss out on the fun! Follow me: https://www.facebook.com/memoriesmadeinfirst.
