I did it, I mean the kids did it! Ha! They, we, survived the first 100 days of school. I wasn't sure if I was going to make it this year. But, we did and the 100th day of school was so much fun. My kids are starting to come around and maybe by the 120th day of school, we can be highly functioning every day. Ha! Right now, it’s every other day. I am super impressed with their reading though and that makes me happy. Here are some pics from our celebration on Friday.
We had fun cupcakes after lunch.
This was the 100th day snack we made and I sent home. You're welcome sweet parents. :) No really, thanks for donating everything if you read this thing.
Isn't this the cutest shirt? My first grade teacher friend made it with her cameo. Since I now have one of those fancy machines, which I have yet to use, I feel like I need to make one of these too!
We dobbed 100 "gumballs" on a paper plate for what will become a gumball machine tomorrow but let's be honest people. They either had 12 or 2,000 gumballs on that plate. ha!
We stuck 100 stickers on this fancy paper. Man, that took forever but they loved it and I loved it because they were super quiet and focus. I feel like we need to do this again soon! :)
We made necklaces with 100 fruit loops and a ribbon in the middle. I'm pretty sure some of the kids were missing at recess. I swear they were behind the tree eating their necklaces. Ha!
We also made hats and the kids wore shirts with 100 things attached to them. They were pretty awesome. I posted some pics on Instagram. The link to follow me is above. :)
Also, happening in my world, I posted a fun Literacy Center pack tonight. I'm super excited about it. The graphics are adorbs. Here are some pics of my centers ready to go for tomorrow. :)

In other news, I am super pumped to get to go to the EdExpo in two weeks in Atlanta. I am flying out Thursday night so I can attend the Ron Clark Academy on Friday. I think that's just what my heart needs right now. I need my excitement renewed and my spirit shaken a little. That's just the place to get it done too. It's a total bucket list thing and I cannot wait!! I'll post pics to FB and Instagram.
Also, important in my world is something that my friends and I are putting together. I have a group of friends from High School that are still very near and dear to my heart and we get together often. One of my friend's sons is having open heart surgery next month and we wanted to do something for her family. We are hosting a Superhero Walk Family Fun Day next month. This is sweet Gavin. He is four years old.
I would love it if you would follow our FB page and help out if you feel inclined. Isn't he the cutest? He is obsessed with superheros so we will all dress up like one on the event day. I can't wait. Cape and all y'all. I'll post pics. It could be a tad tragic but just ignore the tights and focus on the cape. Ha!
This week should be filled with adventure. We have a field trip to the rodeo on Wednesday and Friday is our Valentine's party. I'm hoping the other three days can be low key. I'm getting over some crazy stomach thing that has had me in pain and my blood pressure has been redonkulous. I've went to the doctor twice though so I'm all over it. So not cool!
I will be at the Southern California Kindergarten Conference the last weekend of this month. Are you going? I'm teaching a session on writing..my fav. So many of my blogging buddies live in CA so I can't wait to hop on that plane.
Okay, I have to go finish hub's lunches for this week. He's lucky I love him so much. Since he's been back home from traveling for work, we have kicked it into high gear and have went back to clean eating and working out regularly. I'm ashamed to admit but I gained 25 pounds last semester. No one believes me. Apparently I hide it well. I've lost 15 pounds since Jan. 1st and have another 10 to undo that damage and then I can go from there. My husband has lost 25 pounds in the same amount of time which makes me want to punch him in the face, especially since he really isn't fluffy to begin with but then I think about how cute he is and I'm over it. Ha!
Love and virtual hugs!
