Thursday.....BUSY Thursday....

Whew! I am really tired today! Our school day was filled with so much excitement. Our specials day is Thursday, and the children get to visit art, music, and pe...... For a four year old that sometimes means OVER STIMULATION!!!! Then on top of that we had a fire drill---planned during our NAP!!!!!!!!!!!! So......we had to reschedule our afternoon. If you haven't been around four year olds, then you may not understand schedule change! Four year olds do not handle schedule changes well!!! Finally, my TA and I got them on their rest mats and SOME went to sleep... We had a small birthday party--LOTS of SUGAR... and sent them home..........
To top it all off..... TOMORROW......................PAJAMA DAY!!!!!!!!!

Yep, I asked for it...I KNOW....

Here's a quick card for today.

~We're Back~



What a wonderful mini vacation our family had. We ventured away to Gatlinburg, Tennessee! It was such a fun time. We spent time with the boys, watched movies, hit the outlet malls, and squeezed in an awesome magic show! We didn't see any snow until we were packing up to leave yesterday!!! Then back to the house....

We woke up this morning to light snow!! The weather forecast was for it to be gone from here by early morning.... Well, it is still snowing!! It is not sticking though:(((( I just want enough for the kids to play in......

Well enough of me, me, me..... Calling all prayer warriors..... Please pray for Baby Harper...... She is one sick little newborn....... You can visit her mommy's blog here....http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/......

Thanks!

~Tuesday's Thoughts~


In my world of teaching four year olds---children say the craziest things!! Today was one of the funniest I have heard in a while.... I asked one of my little ones if her mom's hair was still short. She said, "No--it's getting longer and mine is falling out!!! (Now remember---she is 4!) I want mine to look like my baby doll's hair!! (Her baby doll is bald...) Oh well..... We had a lot of fun today.......
I leave you with another teacher card I made!!!

~Monday Weigh In~



We're off to the start of a new work week. I was excited to step on the scale this morning. I felt good about the past week. I managed to walk 3 times and to watch what I ate. The weekend was a lot harder as I was home and wanted to eat more......


I stepped on the scales and........ 161.4...........WoW..... I managed to lose 1.8 pounds this week. Not that bad!!!


I am looking forward to a fun week of creative lunches.... I've included one of my latest card creations. I created this for a fun sketch challenge over at Verve stamps!!!

~Finally Friday~

The end the work week is finally here! It has been a busy week full of fun! My little Pre-Kinders learned a lot about Winter. Their favorite part of the week was learning about ice!!! It was fascinating to listed to them carry on conversations about why water turns to ice and then how it melts. Oh, if I could be 4 again!!!!

There is not a card for today just a simple wish of a relaxing weekend. I am almost finished my creation for the Scripture 2009 Challenge! I decided to create a 5 x 7 piece so I could use them in frames. Stay tuned tomorrow for the finished product!

Will blog again tomorrow,

I hope today for you has been one of enjoyment! Take just a moment right now to thank God for something he has done today!


We plan on watching the big game tonight~~ I am not really rooting for anyone. I sure hope it is a good one~

Scripture Challenge~Week 1


It was such a fabulous Sunday to be in the house of the Lord!! I have decided to participate in the Scripture Challenge 2009 that is hosted by Patter on her blog, http://triplethescraps.blogspot.com/.
I haven't decided exactly how I am going to house all my scriptures... I like the idea of a rolodex, but have a different idea, I think....


Week 1: Faith...........
I need to focus on his word and create my submission.


Look for my creation later in the week.


Have a fun evening~

~Happy New Year 2009~

I can hardly believe that 2008 is over and the beginning of 2009 is already here! It seems just like yesterday I was getting married and then the children were born! Time flies and I often find myself wondering where it went! I plan to spend more time with my family and in God's word this coming year. I hope your day is restful and full of love.
