Confession #12

Today is Sunday and I'm confessing. I really just don't want to go back to work until, well, a long time from now. I'd really rather do what I'm doing right now. I'm sitting on my porch in my rocking chair, listening to my fountain and looking at my beautiful flowers! This is a touch of Heaven I do believe. I'm sure the good Lord will have lot's of flowers.

I also have another confession. I'm actually supposed to continue saving every dime I earn to go toward our addition to our house, but we've decided that a five year anniversary trip with our baby boy is in tow. We'll have been married five years at the end of May and we made it through all the ups and downs. We went from no jobs, to jobs, no baby to having a baby and here we are. Today, I earn enough with my TpT store to allow us to do plenty of extras in life. We are going to head to a beach somewhere in the U.S. due to the fact that it's so costly to travel anywhere else. I don't really know how well a two year old will do on an eight hour car ride, but we're going to give it a try. Wish us luck! Thanks for reading!!

Confession #11: FREEBIE again!!!

So, my next confession is that I am obsessed with fonts. Not just the ordinary fonts of life, but unique and creative fonts. I finally, after trail and errors through learning, have taught myself to make my very own fonts. I really hope that I am able to share the fonts I create with others. I'd really love to see some of my very own fonts out there!! This font is made just for cover pages. It's thick and bold to make anything stand out!

Here's a link to my Font FREEBIE!!! Please, feel free to leave feedback at my TpT store!!!

Confession #10

This is a completely random and not even educationally related confession. I'm in love with flowers and putting them all over my porch with their beautiful colors makes me happy!! Thanks to my sister-in-law and her design abilities, I was able to make everything work. I'm definitely ready for the summer so I can spend my days with my sweet baby boy and start a new project. My porch is now one of those places that makes you just want to sit down in the rocking chair, listen to the fountain, admire the beautiful flowers and read a book.

Confession #9: Another FREEBIE

I just can't stand myself. I try to spend my spring break free of school and TpT work and what do I find myself doing? Making new products for my store!! So I have another FREEBIE for you fourthie's (is that a word?) out there! I've been looking at the Next Generation Science Standards and I'm excited to say that I'm already organized. I've created a checklist for the 4th grade standards to keep myself together this upcoming school year. Things are changing so rapidly, there's no reason we shouldn't be organized. Check out the sample picture below.


Boy, do I have a surprise for all of you fourth grade teacher's out there! I'm not going to say what I'm currently working on, but it's going to be a wonderful addition to helping you make the best of the Next Generation Science Standards!!!
There's another thing, don't forget my Spring Break freebie is still up and going strong! I hope you all will take advantage of this morning worksheet set.

Confession #7: A Spring Break Freebie

We are all just so excited that spring break is finally here! I have no plans whatsoever and it kind of feels good! I do plan to spend the entire week with my baby boy and pretend to be a stay at home mommy. I can't wait to do this in the summer, too! After spending a while cleaning my classroom it popped into my head that I wanted to celebrate by posting a wonderful FREEBIE opportunity for the entire week of my spring break! I'm hoping a lot of you out there are on spring break as well!

The freebie can be found on my TpT site by clicking HERE! This freebie includeS a download of THREE of my best seller Go Math! Morning Worksheet sets! I do have plans of completing the rest by the end of the year, but my time is very short with teaching and raising a toddler! I hope you all will enjoy and please comment or leave feedback at my TpT store!

Confession #6

My confession for today is that I am truly exhausted. I rarely admit this to anyone except for my husband. I feel like I have a lot to do in so little time at work and at home. I'm working miracles at work, well, I'm trying to and have been all year. Right now I'm pretty sure the new school year excitement took off a few months back. It's the moment when you think to yourself, what else can I do?
Home is another story. A two year old on the run, a new addition onto our house and a business to run. I just don't know what to do first. Does anyone have a solution for 24/7 bloodshot eyes?
