This Snow!

It cracks me up the first part of winter we had nothing. It was the oddest thing we had 50 degree weather I even caught myself not wearing a coat OUTSIDE in the middle of DECEMBER!

And then school gets back in session and what happens?

Yes the snow starts falling.

In a way it's a nice relief I enjoy my random snow days and those delightful two hour delays.

However, when the two hour delays start popping up I start to realize all the work we need to cram into a half day it's not always fun. But the kids don't seem to mind they are to excited we didn't have get on the bus early in the morning.

Jeremy always lets me know it's snowing outside by saying. "Gingy cooooold!" I love his little chubby face smiling as he pretends to shiver.

Well, in school right now we are learning how to combine coins together and count them. Both my kindergartners and first graders seem to have difficulty getting the concept of counting. When I was small I seemed to get the concept pretty easy but when it came to division forget it I was lost.

Thankfully we don't have to do much division in first grade! ;)

So, right now with school and home I am keeping pretty busy. Keep and eye on my next post I think you might enjoy it!:)

Well I'm doing great!

So it's January 20th and this is my second post of the year.

Oh brother.

Well, first off. A HUGE BIG THANK YOU to MACKENZIE!!! Love the new look on my corner of the web.

Secondly, the school year is going well. I am keeping myself busy thats for sure. Hearing my name called over and over could be an annoyance to some but for the most part it's a blessing to me. I love these little guys. They fill my life with smiles and laughter.

The one thing I find hard to do is prepare my first graders for second grade they have been with me since k4 so they have only ever had me for a teacher so they tend to rely on me for things that they could do themselves. Of course when they were in k4 it was very easy for me to help them with everything but now I found myself making them do more. And it's hard. But sooner then they think they are going to be in the big second grade and thats a leap and jump from first grade.

We are celebrating 100 days in school very soon. The kids are so excited and can't wait to have our party.

Jeremy is doing well growing so fast. He is saying more sentences then just words. He is just the apple of my eye.

I promise to update more often. I do love this blog! ;)

Happy New Year

2011 was quite the year for me a lot happen some good some not so good but all in all the Lord kept His hand wrapped around mine and that right there taught me many lessons that I so needed to learn.

So in 2011...

It started out pretty scary our family had some valleys to cross and the Lord needed to teach us who was in control.

By the end of February God was saying yes to our prayers and blessings started flooding our home.

March was the beginning of my realization that Carole was indeed getting married my sweet little sister was no longer going to be sharing a room with me and that right there was heart melting,tear flooding stuff.

Wedding showers were coming up plus my very first on my own kindergarten gradation lets just say I was overwhelmed.

April and May came and went so fast I didn't know what happened.

Then June appeared the kindergarten graduation went swell and two weeks later the wedding appeared and so did more tears.

Of course during all of this our bundle of Joy Jeremy was sprouting like a weed growing and learning so fast.

July was probably the scariest month of the year my daddy was rushed to the hospital and had emergency surgery. Oh, the lessons I learned from that month alone I could right a book about.

August was calmer Jeremy turning two, dad recovering and staying at home and me getting ready for school again.

September and October came and went.

November and December flew by.

And now on to the new year.

One thing I would like to do is become more of a blogger again. I miss it!

I am going to try to post more again and if you would please leave a comment telling me you will be faithful in reading, I know I will be more encouraged to blog more often. ;)

Here I go trying to get black into this wacky bloggy world!
