Blog Stalking Linky Party (One more stalking evening before I leave for vacay-lol)

How ironic-just when I post that I will not be stalking and I am going on vacation, Clutter Free Classroom is having a Blog Stalking Linky Party. I decided to join in as I blogstalk tonight. However, my blogstalking will be put on hold until July (for real) beginning tomorrow.
Take a look at my blogroll to see who I stalk. I love them all! Of course, I sometime stalk people in their blogroll too and my blogroll grows-lol.
Happy Blogstalking-Come Back Soon!

I will be on a REAL vacation (not just summer break) until July. I will not be blogstalking. I will not be posting. I will not be doing anything school related. I will be enjoying my family and having fun--lots and lots of fun.

Summer Project # 1

We have recently finished our basement. Just in time for the perfect summer hangout! Now time for me to move some of the things that have been sitting in my front living room to the basement to decorate!
These are the things to be moved!

This is the new space. What a cozy place for my family to hangout, watch videos, play, eat popcorn, and just have FUN!

Dylan is excited!


We even have a bedroom/office for guests (grandma when she works 2 or 3 days in a row (nurse)) and as a place for my lovely daughter to use the computer while I use the laptop.

Of course, there is a bathroom and a kitchnette is in the works!

So this is project # 1-complete!

I believe project 2 will be a spruce up to our covered porch! I will try Mrs. R's crafty letter idea over at Mrs. Randall's Learning Library

Signature Test 2

Now that I think I have figured out how to use my signature each time. I am going to learn how to use my url in a comment without typing the complete url. I have been told how to do it, but each time I try no luck. So i will try again.

Just playing around-

Summer-and a change

I told myself and my little family that I would not think about school much this summer. Well, we went to the library today. I checked out kids books (Social Studies and Science topics) to make some new games. SO, I will be working on those, but mainly I will be going to the pool, going to the library, and oh yeah-My family and my sister's family are going to Orlando and on a Disney Cruise.

This month (probably tomorrow) I will be changing my blog's name as I will be teaching third grade next year. It is bittersweet, but I can tackle this challenge as I am needed in upper grades due to my test scores and being a "strong" teacher ( btw-I have taught third and fifth-well a variety of grade levels)! I am even (a teensy, weensy bit) somewhat excited. So stayed tuned for lots of changes in blogland.
