Show and Tell Classroom Preparations
Work, work, work, work, work! That stinking song keeps playing over and over in my head as I work on preparing my room for the upcoming year. My new theme is confetti and candy and I love it! I have also been reorganizing my library, little by little, when my children are at open gym. It is not done yet, but I’ve put a large dent in it.
13th Birthday Celebration
My baby girl turned 13 (*gasp*) this month. We celebrated by going to The Melting Pot in St. Louis for some fondue fun. She had a blast and said she can’t wait to go again. Of course, her favorite was the chocolate fondue. It was amazing! We finished off the birthday weekend with a family party with comfort food and a Dairy Queen ice cream cake.
The kids and I took a trip to the St. Louis Zoo this month. Many of the animals were out and about. The monkeys put on an entertaining little display in the primate house that we enjoyed too. We had a blast! Very rarely do we all get to be together anymore with sports schedules. It was some much need and cherished family time. I’m already planning our next day adventure.
Pokemon Go has hit our house like a storm. Since we live in a rural area my kids can’t catch these little creatures unless I drive to a neighboring town. (*sigh*) On the bright side, at least the kids don’t complain about running errands in town with me now.
