Graduate courses and PTO

Last week I started my classes and they've been keeping me quite busy. My online course has made me step up my game and forced me to get my big girl pants on for real! 

So yeah, school work and I have been volunteering at my child's school lately too-busy,busy. I did manage to finish some activities though. The domino activities and math tile activities go along with the dominoes and tiles I found at Dollar Tree.
Hope these can be of some use to you!

Garage sale find project

This weekend has been muy productive! So far I: bagged my magnet sets, finished some incomplete file folders (finding and making replacement parts for those things can be rough on a girl), made magnet numbers for a garage sale find, made a dominoes activity, created a couple math tile worksheets, and still managed to get the house cleaned up and have quality time with the kiddos. I'm tired just reading that last sentence back to myself!!!

Since my classes start tomorrow I better get back to my checklist of to-dos but wanted to share my garage sale find (well my mother's find anyway).
Most of the sets included all ten cards (double sided) and I got 4 sets. While some of the material is outdated (I think the date on the game is...1990) I think that these would still be great in the classroom.

Today's the first day of the school year!

I officially have a kindergartener! Time flew by way too quickly. I hope she has a great first day of an awesomely great school year. Now if I can get hired on within the next week or so that would be real super. Employment is always fun.

In the meantime though I'm going to be substitute teaching, volunteering when I can, working on graduate studies, and continuing to work on projects for my future students and my girls.

I think I'll really enjoy Al's naptime today and tomorrow-project completions here I come!!

It's been C-R-A-Z-Y!

We finished pretend school (boo) and I'm happy that I had the opportunity to really work w/my girls these last few weeks. 

I also had a chance to help setup a friend's wall space-not sure where she got the idea but her whole setup looks awesome!

Last weekend we attended a graduation for my brother's lady! She's so amazing. Seeing the degrees (masters and doctorate) given out made me super excited about starting my graduate studies next week. Yippie!

So that's about all I've got right now. I've been working on a few projects but can't seem to actually complete a project. Might need to do that this week before my crazy life takes off next week...yeah.
