Back at it!

Well, I made it through the day...barely. I went to bed at 8pm last night and I still had a hard time getting up when my alarm went off at 5:15am. I think my kiddos were right there with me. At one point I think they were all asleep with their eyes open during math time ;) I had one little guy that actually fell asleep during group time. Hopefully everyone, including me, are awake tomorrow. Although we were half asleep today we did get a lot done. We started The Teachers Wife's Super E unit. My kiddos LOVED it. I can't wait to do some more tomorrow. We also watched this video by THE ELECTRIC COMPANY: James Iglehart's "Silent E" (click on picture for link). My little ones really enjoyed it.

We will be finishing up our New Years Resolution writing tomorrow and Super E activities.

Last 2 days of vacation...

Well vacation is almost over and I have mixed emotions about going back to work on Monday. I really do miss my little ones (and mine is driving me crazy at home) but I have enjoyed the relaxing vacation that I have had. I honestly did NOTHING on my To Do list. I read 3 trashy love stories and caught up on my TV shows. I also played lots of games with my lil man and eat way to many cookies. This morning Parker started a Basketball Camp trough the city so we had to set the alarm clock and get up early... boy was that hard! How am I going to get up even earlier Monday morning??? Maybe I should get up early tomorrow to get ready... it is a nice thought but probably won't happen. Yesterday I started to panic because I have got nothing done and I left for vacation with all my Christmas stuff still up in my room. So, yesterday I went in and spend almost 5 hours just cleaning and organizing my room. I felt much better when I got home. Then I started working on printing an preping these fun units that I got on TpT last week. Next will be all about Super Hero's in room 3!

I turned a movie on and went to town cutting an laminating. No I just need to get my Newsletter and a few other things done and I think I will be ready for my kiddos on Tuesday. 

Have a great weekend!!!!!

Cameo FUN!!!

So, one of my downtown resolutions was to learn how to use my Silhouette Cameo and little better. I sat down with my note pad and starting playing around this morning. When I figure out how to do something (i.e. shadow my letters) and I don't write it down I will spend another hour the next time trying to remember how I did it last time ;) After about 3 hours of playing around this is what I had when I finished...
I will be taking pictures of my little ones when we return from vacation to add to their New Years Resolution writing. Poor Parker was about fed up by the time I finished. I had him come in several times to measure his lil face to make sure my eye holes in the right spots. Then I made him pose for me! I love having a little one about the same age as my kiddos to test on.

Now it is time to play with that handsome little man. I have a feeling I will also get a little workout in at the same time. His game of choice lately has been this...
A gift from Daddy for Christmas. Quit the workout!!
