 Hello Friends,

My student teaching is going really well. I just finished week 7 today. I cannot believe I only have two more weeks of teaching! I am finally getting into the routine and then I have to leave. In one week we will have 2 weeks of Easter break....not for me though. During those 2 weeks of break I have to finish my last college class: Adolescence Behavior. Pfew! Busy busy...

I am so looking forward to traveling to FL in May and then seeing Patrick again. I have so many things planned this summer. I am excited to see what all I get to do.

What has been keeping you busy?

Free April Desktop Backgrounds



New Desktop Backgrounds for April.....just in time. 
 
April, dear April, I beg you come soon –
And bring your sweet primroses too.
Let them join in with the daffodils’ play,
As skies offer sunshine anew.

April, dear April, my blessed spring child,
Ornate in your yellow and white,
Teasing the birds into trilling their songs
And dancing to music of flight.

April, dear April, come enter my dreams
And rid me from cold winter chills.
Banish the rain and those blustery winds
And warm up our countryside hills.

April, dear April, I know you can’t stay -
You have to move on ‘till next year.
And though I shall cherish the glory of summer,
You’ll always be my month most dear.


Any flowers starting to bloom where you are?

A Trip to to the Woods



Last week my second grade class took a field trip to the woods on the warm spring day.

Every student got a paper with a few plants they needed to find during our trip. We walked from the school to the woods and went up the "Heaven's Ladder"....513 steps! We all were so exhausted once we got up there! ☺

We walked through the woods and collected eatable plants. The kids were very excited about that! I just hope they did not eat everything they collected in their bags because they also added other plants they liked.

Then they showed me where they had set up their "woods-school". There we ate lunch, the children played and built different things. 

It was a wonderful & beautiful day.

Have you done anything special since the weather has warmed up?

Pictures I Took Lately


Last weekend Patrick, my Grandma and I went to visit some friend 3 hours south of us. The live far into the country which this city girl was totally enjoying. The last 3 pictures are some birds I came across on a horse farm yesterday....the quality isn't so good because I took the pictures with my old camera.

Books of the Bible Bulletin Board

I have to do 2 bulletin boards for my student teaching. The teacher and I were brain storming some ideas and I decided to work on this one first.

It was a lot harder than I anticipated. The idea is pretty simple but I did everything from scratch and so it took a lot of planning, designing, printing, cutting....did I mention cutting....oh and cutting.....then I had to make the shelf and stick all those books on there.



I love how it turned out. Today we talked about it in class and the teacher used it a few times in Bible class.
