Family, Adoption and A Dumb Smart TV

I'm linking up with Julie for my highs/lows for this week.
Check out my crazy fun week!!

Most of my sweet family made dinner together the other night.
Our oldest is missing from the pic.
She was out with friends:)

A little kitten adopted us as his family.
He showed up and we had to feed him.
Now he lives in our garage and plays with the kids everyday.
Natalee and Brilee named him Oreo.

Aren't these adorable!!
I got the idea from the amazing Queen of the First Grade Jungle.
I really liked her purple ones but these match my room.
My firsties fell in love them immediately.

This little girl was having a ball looking through Scholastic Book Club magazines.
I overheard this little group of kids telling each other 
that "We have an amazing teacher."
Be still my heart!
I love these little people!!

My teaching materials for my new Wonders reading series arrived.
It was like Christmas opening all those boxes.
I still think I'm missing a few things but I'm so excited to have all these other items now.

Look at the cuteness of this little Minnie Mouse!
She's dressed up as a bee too!!
I'm putting her in my classroom for Halloween but I don't think I'm 
going to take her down after;)

We got a 50" smart TV.
Only thing is its a dumb TV.
We will not be paying the extra $70 to make it smart:/

I don't really have any downs this week!!
I'm blessed that all my family is healthy and well.
My friends are dealing with health troubles with themselves and 
their husbands.
My prayers and thoughts go out to all them!
Love you all!!

Do you have some Highs/Lows to share?

Lots of highs and a few lows!

I'm linking up with my sweet friend Julie for her High/Low party.
These are my recent high/lows over the last couple of weeks:)
First off are my highs for the week:)

Natalee started 3rd grade! 
She was very ready to go back to school!

Brilee started Kindergarten this year!
He was not ready to go back!

 Completely Editable Behavior Calendars
My behavior charts are working out great this year and the parents are liking them too:)

We have already had 2 birthdays at school.
We have only been in school 8 days so far.
I made healthy choices each time but man was it hard.

 August Desk Buddies {Writing & Craftivity}
My firsties are loving the desk buddies this year again!
They keep asking when we get to make another one.
We have been going over the writing pages together and I know they 
will do great once I turn it over to them to do independently.

I am in love with my Bulletin Board!!
This picture just does not do it justice.
It's so cute and everyone has liked it.
 Now for my lows:(
Our air conditioner went out on one of the hottest days of the year.
It didn't cost too much but it was an unexpected expense and that is never good.
Also we were told we should start an air conditioner fund to get another one:(
This one is just old and needs to be replaced.
Guess I know where my tax refund will be going:(

This little bird was in our pool.
Not sure what happened to it.
Maybe it was trying to get a drink.
                                                                 Poor little thing!!

Tips and Tools for Back to School- Week 11

Happy Sunday Night everyone!!
OK so if you're anything like me you are not happy that it is Sunday night:(
I'm not ready for school tomorrow.
It's the first FULL week back and I'm still waiting on my teaching materials to come in for the new reading series.
Yep still don't have any of it.
It will be OK.
It has to be and I'll wing it.
I'm getting pretty good at doing it.

It's time for another Tip and Tool for Back to school from another Primary Peep!!
Back to school is a very important time to get parents involved with their child's education.
We need their support to make our jobs easier.
My sweet friend Laura is going to help you with this.
She is also offering 2 wonderful freebies to help with building relationships with your students' parents.
Hop on over and check out the wonderful blog post she has and to snag these goodies.
