Winner! Winner!! & *Friday Freebie

And our winner is.....

Thank you to everyone who followed our stores and who entered our give away! We all appreciate you so much! Sheila Felder, we will be emailing you and sending you our packets soon! Congratulations!!

1. Seriously, Mr. early Spring?? I was soooo hoping this would be true...but alas, in the middle of reading groups this morning I was interrupted by a very excited little boy telling me to look out the window because it was SNOWING!! Ugh!!  I know it is difficult to see because the photo is a bit blurry,  but it was really coming down! {Oh, please warm up soon!}

2. I'm working on updating my Plant and Flower Packet and it is almost done! I'll post about it as soon as it is updated on TpT! In the meantime, here's a little Missing Subtrahend Freebie for you!


3. Look what came in the mail today!! I love this magazine! My mom gives me a gift subscription every year for Christmas...or my birthday...I can't remember...But it always has useful information. I love the article on easy tips for cleaning when you just feel like you don't have time! Seriously, teaching full-time, blogging, creating for TpT....who has time for cleaning???  By the time the weekend rolls around I'm lucky to have any energy left to stare at myself in the mirror.

But hey, suggest a few awesome cleaning products and you have peaked my interest! Nothing like when someone gives you a good cleaning product recommendation! {I seriously sound more pathetic than I thought....}

4. Only 5 more days until Spring Break!!! To celebrate the {hopeful} coming of Spring, I did my art lesson on Georgia O'Keefe today. Painting LARGE on a big piece of paper is difficult for first graders. Even with modeling and step-by-step instruction, my cuties still wanted to make their flowers from a "normal" perspective....or even smaller...instead of the perspective of a bumble bee or bird landing on a flower. Look at their darling work! It sure has brightened up our hallway!

5. My darlin' step-children are on their way here from California even as I type! With no children of my own, {and after a very long 44 years of waiting to find my sweetheart and best friend to marry} I feel oh-so-very-blessed to have these four Luv Bugs in my world! We have a wonderful relationship and I miss them so much when they aren't here! So, here's a photo of my cuties! I'm so proud of each one of them!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Hi Rebecca! I'm sure it's hard to think about spring cleaning when it's snowing outside! We loved looking at your kiddo's artwork...they definitely have a great spring feel!
