As a resident of the town of Ringgold, Georgia, I know exactly what the folks over in Moore, Oklahoma are feeling right now. Just two short years ago, our little town was also touched by a series of storms that have forever changed the people and community that we call home. Numerous deaths, destruction of historical sites, and the imminent sense of fear are still wreaking havoc here in Ringgold. Thunderstorms bring with them the sight of backpacks sitting by the front door in readiness for evacuation to a storm shelter. As a teacher, I cannot fathom what those teachers and students must be seeing, thinking, and feeling. My heart goes out to them and I want to help. I have teamed up with TeachersNotebook and many other Teachers Notebook sellers to donate a product to a bundle in support of those families in Oklahoma. Please stop in and check out the bundle. Every purchase donates to the folks over there in need of our help.

4 1/2 Days to Go!
That's right friends...only 4 1/2 days of school left in the school year and I couldn't be more excited! I'll definitely miss this group of kids though. They were such sweeties and made such HUGE growth this year that I hate to see them go. However, I do have another little sweetie that I get to stay home with! I can't wait to spend more days with her just having fun. We'll be having quite a few days like last year with all this rain we've been having lately. Here's our favorite thing to do....(okay...her's mostly, but I get to pretend to eat the mud pies she makes).
She inspires me so much every single day. She is this amazing creature with a fantastic personality. This evening we had baked potatoes and as I unwrapped them, she asked... "Why do you put "Laloominum" foil on the potatoes? They already have skin so they don't need a coat." Well, I just cracked up and told her the purpose. Then as I sat tonight pondering this week's freebie, it hit me... "Laloominum Foil". So I went to work and whipped up a little set for you. This set has five background papers in it but there are more in my TPT store as well. I hope you like them!
If you like this set and want more...Check here!
Have a great week everyone! I know I'll be cartwheeling on Friday. Hopefully I won't hurt myself!
