Shamrock Pretzels

I mentioned a few posts ago that I was going to share a fun St. Patrick’s Day recipe with you. Since I have a lot of Irish in my heritage, I love St. Patrick’s Day and plan on celebrating it in my classroom each year. These pretzels are very easy to make and quite fun. […]

Snow Days

We are currently on day two of classes cancelled due to snow and ice! This picture was taken today as the snow was melting, but yesterday everywhere was a sheet of ice. When I woke up on Monday and saw classes were cancelled, I was too excited to sleep in so I got up and […]

Party with the Preschoolers

The preschool Valentines Day party was a hit! Two and a half year olds are kind of young for a big celebration, but we were able to create some fun memories. The holiday I remember the most from elementary school days is Valentines Day because I LOVED decorating a box and making valentine cards for […]

Gone with the Week

We are exactly four weeks away from spring break and I am very excited! We have been back at school for a month now, but it seems longer. I live by my ┬áplanner and it has to-do’s written on every line. It’s not too bad though, I enjoy my classes and working with my preschoolers […]

Tuesday Tidbits

Allie and I have accepted to challenge to go as many days as possible. We went there today for our Tuesday devotional and have already planned to […]

They have protein (oats, eggs, chia seeds), fruit (apple sauce, coconut, optional: raisins), and fun (dark chocolate, cinnamon). They are not sugar free, but most of the sugar is naturally occurring in the dark […]

Educational Cookies

I have a night class each week for two hours called, Best Practices in Education. We basically learn all the up-to-date Common Core Standards and best teaching methods research is currently reporting. I enjoy the class for the most part (other than groups projects…I die a little inside when I hear a professor say group […]

Scenes from Christmas.

Christmas was excellent this year. Snow on Christmas day. A million cookies of every shape and size. Family and friends home. Christmas ham. Cozy fires in the fire-place. Family games. Movie night. New clothes. Light shows. Thank you Jesus for coming into our world with one main mission: save the lost. Merry Christmas! Here’s to […]

Breakfast and Reunions

Today was a lovely, relaxing Sunday. It started out with church at my sisters church which I really enjoyed! The atmosphere was great and I really liked the preacher. Afterwards we headed to the Original Pancake House where they have a few gluten-free items on the menu. I went with a veggie omelet and some […]
