I cannot believe this school year is over! The last day of school is always bittersweet. With the end of this school year comes some very excited days for our little family. My husband just graduated with a degree in forestry and started his big boy job today! YAY!! The Lord has continually provided for us through his journey back to school and now blessed him with a great job. My theme verse during this season of our marriage has been Philippians 4:19. Thank you Jesus!
Don't you love new beginnings? Found this surprise in our yard yesterday! So fitting for this new phase of life!
The end of the school year means planning has begun for next year! Our school district is going into a pilot year for Common Core. We have been asked to use our old basal readers and any trade books we can find in the library to plan for next year. I'm excited and concerned all at the same time. We have seven first grade classes, which means LOTS of book/resource sharing! I know many of you bloggers out there are already implementing Common Core in your classrooms, and I will be stopping by frequently to get ideas and ask questions!
To add to the celebration at our house, we are T-minus 15 days until our family Disney World Trip! I cannot begin to tell you how excited we are... or maybe just me! This will be Randy's first trip to Disney, and I would love suggestions on what to do! Please help!
Making Homework OPTIONAL Is the Way to Go!
