The Reindeer Feed Store

I went back to my second grade class to visit during their Christmas party and set up a little "Reindeer Feed Store."  The inspiration, of course, was from Pinterest. The kids made reindeer food, decorated Gingerbread men, played Christmas Bingo, and had some awesome cupcakes!  It was so nice to see all the kids and their parents again!

 I am sure I will do this activity with my future students during the holidays! Here is the link where I downloaded the reindeer food labels:

Graduation-Drury Class of 2011

It was a wonderful last day at Drury-COLLEGE GRADUATION! I completed my Bachelors of Art in Elementary Education with a minor in Global Perspectives. (A total of 143 hours in 3 years and-not too bad!)  I received a call last week from a principal and I will be filling a maternity leave for a teacher in 4th grade! I cannot wait! Hopefully it will lead to a full teaching job for next fall.  I want to thank my family and friends who supported me through this journey and now on to my masters!

Baby It's Cold Outside!

I listen to Christmas music constantly once Thanksgiving is over.  I listen to Pandora in my car and at home. I just heard the Christmas song "Baby It's Cold Outside" and it makes me want to go back to Cabo San Lucas for the warm weather! Seth and I went to Cabo San Lucas this summer for our honeymoon! Of all the places I have travelled Cabo is one of the top 5.  The weather was perfect.  We stayed at all all-inclusive resort and had a great, relaxing time. Our favorite part of the trip was Lover's Beach, where we snorkeled.   I cannot wait to go back for our 5 year anniversary!
