I'm praying for and thinking about all the 4th and 5th grade teachers this week. I am super glad I teach 1st grade right now. My 1st group of students are now in 4th grade. Where has the time gone? Last year I wrote each of them a note for the 3rd grade TAKS test. Now I have 2 previous groups of students testing and I decided writing notes to all of them would take a while. I decided to give them a little treat to wish them luck. Here is what I came up with.

I'm Back... At least for now

WOW!!!! It's been so long since I have blogged. I feel like this year has been extremely busy. Last semester was my research class for my masters so that's what I did all last semester. 40 pages later and an A in the class (super proud of myself) I am done with research. I will graduate in December and I am beyond excited.

I have 24 precious darlings in my class right now. They just keep coming and no one ever seems to leave so here we are with 24.

We have our field trip tomorrow to the Museum of Nature and Science (The Science Place at Fair Park for all you Dallas people). I thought I would make a little something to give the 9 brave parents who are going with us tomorrow. I don't know if they know what they've gotten themselves into. I looked on Pinterest (I've almost been obsessed for a year now) and I couldn't find anything I absolutely loved. So I decided to create my own. I used Microsoft Word to create the border and font. Then I used a stamp from Stampin' Up (my mom is a distributor) and this is what I came up with. I am pretty impressed with myself because my mom and sister got all the crafty genes in our family.

All prayers for the field trip will be accepted and appreciated! LOL
