Janea loves to pose!
Janea loves her Aunt Wendy!
My Mom loves giraffes!
We take a picture on this giraffe every year! It's great to see how much the kids grow!
Look I took this off the cactus!
We are jungle trekkers!
This year Jaron was our Navigator! He loved the map!
Don't forget about me! (She loves to pose for the camera!
We had a great time at the zoo! I will post again and show what Jaron liked the best this year!

Today we are headed to OMAHA! My sister lives there and we are having a "girls weekend plus Jaron"! Mom, me and the kids go every spring and then take the kids to the Henry Doorly Zoo for a day of fun! If we get some great picture I will post them!

I challenged my students to read for the month of April and I would treat them to a day out at the movies. They have decided that we want to see Shrek the Third this Friday! That means I have to find out how to get them there for the movie! I think I am crazy!

I am starting to lose my marbles!!!!!!!!!
I am so counting day the last day's of school! We are trying to finish well but I am so ready for Summer! The arguing, the complaining, the not listening, the stuff that kids do is absolutely driving me crazy!!! I am ready for a nice long break!
Our church volleyball league is starting up tonight! I am excited and yet know I will probably make a fool out of myself! It is good exercise and I get to be with a group of people that I enjoy spending time with. I am so grateful to be part of a church that has such great people. The body of Christ is an awesome place and I fully enjoy being with fellow believers!
Shout out to my folks for watching the kids for me on Saturday so that Dan and I could go out for the evening! Thanks mom and dad!

I got sunburned for the first time this season. I wore a tank top, skirt and denim shirt to school yesterday and we spent most of the afternoon outside and it was hot! I took the denim shirt off and so my shoulders and upperback were sunburned, I think that made me tired too! All in all I am thankful that there are only 9.5 days left to school!

Last night at church was the Awana Awards night! I was so proud of all my kids and the hard work that they put into saying their sections. I am the director of the program at our church. Janea got her book award and then was also awarded the 2nd place girls Spark of the Year! I am so proud! She is highly motivated to get to be the Spark of the year next year!
Jaron is so funny! He was playing outside today and all he could talk about was Daddy's birthday! I think he was more excited than Dan! He is on a huge Spiderman kick right now! He got a Spiderman poster for his wall! He had it up with 3 minutes of us getting home tonight! I'm such a pushover at times! (I just noticed I am using the explamation point a lot, if my students did this I would lower their grades!)
I think I am feeling old because I need a night off! Dan is working the late shift and so I am alone for most of the week. I am looking forward to summer break and being able to be more than just two ships that pass in the night. We're scheduled to go out this weekend so hopefully I'll start feeling younger again!

AAHH! It's raining AGAIN! It has rained almost everyday for the last two weeks! I am so tired of Indoor Recess!!! They are louder anyway since it's close to the end of school and now they are trapped indoors! I CANT TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is my class on our Chicago Trip!
My students and my kids are getting squirrelly! They just want to be outside the house, doing fun kids stuff and not wanting to work on anything! I don't blame them, it's hard to be inside when the weather is nice! I am so glad that school is out in 12.5 days.

I had to sub for another teacher today as well. I wish that people would call in sick sooner so that other don't have to pick up their slack. Its' been crazy at OPA this week.
My kids are great! Janea is working hard to finish the SPARKS book that she has this year! Jaron is still working on potty training. I am trying to finish the year strong so I can focus some quality "Mom" time with them this summer. I am trying to think of some fun things for us to do that won't cost a ton of money! I am looking forward to playing outside, going to the pool, and just hanging out with my kids! One of the definite perks to being a teacher!
Well, that's it for now. The kids and I are getting ready for AWANA!

Jaron's not sure what's going on
Having fun with the Chicken Dance!
Everybody get on the floor!
We had a great dance! The students loved the fun, the parents loved the food, and the DJ was great! OPA did ourselves proud with the festivities! Can't wait to do it again next year!
