I am blessed beyond measure! How can I put that in to words ? Good thing I
talk too much love words! I am excited to link up with the fantabulous blog, What the Teacher Wants, for their "I'm Thankful" linky party!
1. What are you most thankful for in your classroom?
Um, my classroom! I was one of those “it takes ten years to graduate” kinda people because I chose to pause, get married, become a foster parent, adopt, and THEN go back to school. So, I am just thankful to have my very own grown up classroom where I get to go every day and meet the little sweeties that God chooses to bless me with each year. I feel like it is one of the most exciting places to be and I am just lucky to spend my days in a classroom.
P.S. the computers, document camera, projector, ipod, games, toys, tables, bulletin boards, desk, supplies, and FUN make life pretty sweet too!
2. Who are you most thankful for?
Well, I do love me some Jesus. J I am thankful that he created the perfect man for me and in two weeks we will celebrate our 10th anniversary. I am also incredibly thankful for my three children who were not born from my body but born from my heart. I am thankful for my family, friends, career that I love, and blogging buddies that have become such an inspiration to me.
3. What 3 blogs are you most thankful for?
Oh. Em. Ge. Just THREE??? How can I choose? I love SOOOOO many! Not only are my
100 favorite blogs amazing, but I like to think they are my friends!
Well, I will just say that before I began blogging a few months ago, there were a few kinder blogs that I
stalked followed religiously. They really helped me to survive my first two years of teaching.
I am so thankful for April at Chalk Talk. She is not only a fellow Texas girl like me, but she is witty, creative, and resourceful. I have learned so much from her.
I am so thankful for Deanna at Mrs. Jump’s Class. She is so clever and really understands the mind of a kindergarten. She teaches on a level that increases knowledge while still providing such a FUN experience. I love her southern drawl too.
Since I have been blogging, Donna at Kinderglynn has been such a life saver! She has encouraged me, supported me, and given me such good advice when I am technically challenged or just simply ditzy.
Okay, I know we are only supposed to say three but I am often a rule breaker…don’t judge me. J
I have a new favorite blog called A Teeny Tiny Teacher. Kristin is haliarous and her posts are sometimes the highlight of my day (sad I know…note to self, must find funnier friends..just kidding!). Seriously, she is laugh out loud funny and I am so thankful to read her blog every day. Well, honestly I just started but I plan on reading it every day. J
Oh, and one more! (I know, I am one of those kids who never stops!) I can’t forget Charity at The Organized Classroom blog. Her Teacher Blog Traffic School is amazing and I have learned soooo much from her!
If anyone would like to join me in creating a 12 step program for Pinterest, I am ready. We could start a group, take pictures of it, and then pin them. Um, maybe I will just embrace this
addiction guilty pleasure and use it for the great tool it is. Come pin with me! http://pinterest.com/kreativekinder/
5. What are you most thankful for?
Well, I think number 2 sums up a lot of it but let’s not forget that I am thankful for cameras where I
get to be pretend to be a photographer. I am thankful for this little blog that I love so much! I am thankful for diet coke even though I can’t really drink it anymore; I know someone out there has my back and is drinking my share! I am thankful for movies and reality television that makes me feel normal because those people are straight up Cra-Z! I am thankful for music…how can I forget?! I LOVE music and especially LOVE to sing worship music. K-Love anyone?
And p.s. I LOVE my mazda 5 that I bought this summer. Her name is Pearl and she is the bestest little car/van/I am not sure what she is/ vehicle on Earth. Oh, oh, and I am thankful for my bathroom which I hide in from my teenagers when they are crazy and hormonal. Okay, this could go on forever. I am just really THANKFUL!
I know that was long but now you really know me. Remember, I live to put the FUN in dysFUNctional! Now go and link up with Rachelle and Natalie and tell us what you're thankful for!
Disclaimer: After reading all of the other blogs, I realize I went overboard. Oopsie! If you made it through this entire post, you are a trooper and I am THANKFUL for YOU!
