We celebrated Dr. Seuss all week and had a great time! We finished off today with green eggs and ham waiting for them when they came in this morning and green eggs and ham cookies and red fish, blue fish cupcakes to snack on throughout the day-thanks to my little sweeties and their moms for making them! :)
I feel like the last month has been a whirlwind. I had a weekend getaway with two sorority sisters in Feb. in Georgia at one of the girls' cabin. To say it was a fabulous weekend would be an understatement! Her cabin is gorgeous and so are all the quaint little towns surrounding Ellijay, Georgia where her cabin is located. The scenery is spectacular!
We attended a scholarship reception for our son Kirk at University of Memphis last week. He is set on attending there in the fall and we are really pleased with the campus and with all the scholarships he is receiving he is pretty much getting a full ride. I am thankful for him and all his hard work throughout his school years. He has excelled academically and also excelled with leadership roles in school organizations as well as serving as the FBLA state president. :) So getting ready for his graduation is quickly approching...
Kara is busy with school and church activities. She is anxious to get her senior/high school ring ordered as the sophomores are ordering them now. Crazy that one is graduating in 2 months and the another one is already making plans to! Kirk is leaving in two weeks during our spring break for Kenya on a mission trip. He and Kara are also going to Jamaica this summer for a week on a mission trip. I am so thankful that God has called them to have a heart for mission work and look forward to seeing what the Lord has planned for them. Kali is just enjoying being a fourth grader and I'm thankful I've still got a little one around while Kirk and Kara are gone so much!
My idea to share today would be to use Deanna Jump's common core standards posters in the classroom. We got these in the fall of 2011 from tpt when we started implementing common core standards and we love them! They are so cute and I love Deanna and all her products. She is such a sweet person with a sweet spirit! check her out at www.mrsjumpsclass.blogspot.com if you haven't already.
A story to share....on our weekly homework one of the activities was for the students to write a sentence about Spring. One little boy wrote "Thank God for Spring Break!" lol I loved it and my response was "Amen!" I just love Kindergarten! Have a great weekend!
