This summer was awesome! I did so much with my kids and enjoyed every second of it with them. I feel a bit guilty that my hubby was working so hard while we played.
This year Titus is a first grader! I am excited to see him become a confident reader who falls in love with it! I am so excited he has a teacher I know and love!
These two make my heart so happy. I am so in love with them! Jesus, thank you for these two blessings. They truly add so much joy to my life and my prayer is you would use them mightily this year at their school, in their church, and in their community.
My beautiful Selah is in 4th grade this year. She is stunning and fun! I am so excited she is old enough to entrust in many areas.
This year my hope for her is to continue to be an example and to become more organized in everything she does.
Lockers at school! Selah has to practice using a pad lock so she can get in her locker.
As for me... I am still teaching as a K-5 Behavior teacher in a very low-income school. Some days are more challenging than others but God sure makes it worth it. This year I pray he would guide me in every decision I do. That he would be at the forefront when ever I am interacting with a student. Jesus, guide each step, each word, each thought. AMEN

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
