This and That

Wow, I have never been so busy in my entire life.  Let me just apologize about not blogging since March.  My husband made it home from Afghanistan!!!!  I have never been so happy in my entire life!!!  Our little family is reunited again.

Well, it's time to start packing!  My husband and I are getting ready for our big move back to Texas and have been super busy prepping the house to sale, getting things caked, getting rid of things, etc.  I can hardly wrap my mind around it all.  And to top it off, I still have 13 days left with my 2nd graders.  The end of the year seems to be the busiest.  We are reviewing, teaching new concepts (multiplication, cursive, vocabulary) and squeezing in last minute 2nd grade stuff.  Life, as you can see, has been crazy, but I am definitely blessed.

For the next 2 weekends I will be working.  We have a snow makeup day and I am volunteering for a fundraiser at our school to help assist a fellow teacher and her beautiful child, Liam.  I won't go into great details, but he has a rare condition that leaves the family with many medical bills.  If you would like to read more or donate in anyway check out the Facebook Page Love for Liam.

Our grade level made this really cool raffle basket, aka "The Man Basket".  It is perfect for father's day and filled with tons of goodies.  We used a fire pit and loaded everything into it.  It turned out awesome!

If you are in the Goldsboro, NC area, we invite you to Meadow Lane Elementary on June7th from 7:30-3:00 to join in the fun.  We have many raffle baskets, an auction, games, food, bands, and just plain fun!  I'll be running the dunking booth if you want to come dunk our principal!    It's going to be a blast!
