Monday Morning Card #25

It's purple!
And not a fat joke!

So hello you.
Hello elephant.
Hello spring break!

Monday Morning Card #24

In this time of wishful thinking, and hopeful spring,
here is a hoppy frog!

So simple it might just make you smile!

Monday Morning Card #23

I've found so much to be thankful for in my life.
Which means I'm always in need of thank you cards.

While we're both here though,
Thank You!
Thank you for reading.
Thank you for being your beautiful self.
You bring light into this world,
and people don't tell you enough how truly awesome you are.
So thank you.

Good Medicine.

I've been so busy,
but I can't complain.
Instead, I wanted to share with you some of the things that are making me happy.
Keeping me sane.

Let me just say at the outset that this is link/text/random filled.
If you don't have time now-I totally understand!
Come back when you need a pick me up or a smile.

Like this.
So beautiful, simple, and bright.
It makes me miss my sister.

I'm doing practicum
(observing/teaching/learning in the classroom)
at the middle school level,
and I'm in love with it!
The kids are awesome!
My cooperating teacher is so much fun!
I love going and I will be so sad when it's over!

In addition to that I'm working with four different high school in an online class.
I'm giving the kids prompts and feedback,
and I'm getting to know all of these awesome kids from all over the state!

This is when I know I want to be a teacher,
because I can't stay away.

I made gorp.
Mix together the ingredients above
(and whatever else you want really)
in a big bowl
(or the inside part of the crock pot if that's all you have).

I've also been making tea.
I have a bit of a sore throat so yesterday I made three cups of tea.
(Also a book I'm reading-just remember he may have lied.)
I made this, this, and this.
All made my night and throat peaceful.

This has been keeping my emotions in check.
If you don't like the first video you see check out the next one.
Their videos leave me inspired, crying, and/or with a beaming smile.

Finally a surprise.
I found this in a book I was reading with the middle schoolers I'm working with.
I was struck.
I knew, but I forgot.
Then I smiled so big I couldn't stop,
but I also felt a stab of sadness.
I miss my "other" family, and my best friends.

Monday Morning Card #22

I wish I had more time to create birthday cards.
Then I could send one to each and everyone of my friends, family, and casual acquaintances.

As it is I get a card out to you-if I have one,
and I have your address,
and your birthday is on a calendar other than Facebook.
Let's be real about how I don't post on everyone's wall.
And I'm sorry.
I just thought a card would be better.
I just didn't get one sent.
I apologize.
Maybe next year.
