Blue Skies Smiling At Me. Nothing But Blue Skies…

I don’t know what it’s like for the rest of the nation but down here in Arkansas the weather has been HEAVENLY!  A lot of sunshine, low humidity, warm temps…sigh.  Just the other day it was 80 degrees.  And I loved it.  I’m currently in denial about the fact this probably means the summer will be unbearable hot and riddled with insects.  But for now I’m content and happy with the sun.

A few posts back I talked about an assignment I had to do for class that involved creating a glogster.  I’m happy to say that yesterday I finally got around to doing it and it’s now submitted and done.  Looking at it, it’s pathetic it took me as long as it did to put together because I’m pretty sure there are some third graders that could have done a better job in less than half the time.  The information on the page is ridiculously scant but I think that’s the point.  At least I’m hoping it is.  There was no way to possibly put all the relevant information from the chapter on this thing so I scaled back to an extreme degree.  Here’s a link so for those of you who didn’t know what a glogster was, you can get a peek.

Also, some of you from Facebook may have seen that I posted an update about oatmeal.  More specifically, how I don’t like it but am trying to fool my tastebuds into thinking they do.  I think I have finally found success in maple brown sugar.  Is it the beginning of a long and beautiful friendship?  I doubt it, but at least I didn’t dump it down the drain.  That’s gotta count for something.

Speaking of food, there’s a new restaurant here that’s becoming my favorite.  It’s called Pitza 42.  They serve personal pizzas on pita bread or you can get different kinds of salad.  And for every meal purchased they donate a meal to a charity that helps feed hungry children around the world.  AND it’s cheap.  Doesn’t get much better than that.

A look ahead this week shows that Friday is FIELD TRIP DAY!!!!  I love field trip day.  We’re taking the kids to the fire station so that should be pretty fun.  Last year we had some firemen come to the preschool and the kids got to see and try on some of their fire clothes and sit in a fire truck.  The kids had fun but I think this year will be better.

And finally, I’m going to end this post with the Valentine gift I gave my mom and brother.  If this doesn’t say I love you, well, I don’t know what does.

  1. A few things:

    1) I also hate oatmeal. Every few years I think I want to give it another shot. Maybe this time will be different…but no. It’s not.

    2) The way you wrote “Teachers MUST BELIEVE in their students and their abilities” makes it sound like it’s a demand. Like if they don’t, someone’s going to take them out back and smack them around a little bit.

    3) I don’t like that picture of you. I don’t like it at all.

    1) So far Maple Brown Sugar is the only one I can consistently eat. It’s a start…and probably the end if I’m being honest.

    2) It is and if they don’t, someone should. But that’s just me.

    3) hahaha I think it’s one of my best. Most definitely one of my best.

  2. Funny self-portrait! I did not know what a Glogster was, thanks for the link 🙂

    Sure, though mine wasn’t really all that good compared to others. But at least now I (and everyone else on here) know what it is.

  3. Great “Gloogster” Natalie, You’re going to be una maestra sobrsaliente

    Well glad you liked it. Turns out I got full points on it so I guess my professor liked it enough as well. Whoo hoo!
