Ok I don’t actually talk like that…but today I am feelin’ very Texan!
Yesterday I took the kids to Fiesta Texas…
Today at home…
Another reason I feel Texan is because I skyped with Barbara from the Corner on Character and she lives in Friendswood Texas! About 3ish hours away.
Not only that, but guess who was at her house???? They surprised me!
Kim from Finding Joy in Sixth Grade!
We all had our morning coffee and clinked our screens with our mugs! It was SO FUN!
On this lovely Friday evening I plan to click, print, laminate, cut, repeat until it’s time to go to bed. Then I am pretty sure I am going to have to check and recheck my entire bed for scorpions before I can try to fall asleep. As it is now I am typing in the tuck position at my desk…

Awwwww, thanks for the shout out . . . I am STILL smiling! That was, indeed, the highlight of my day to have coffee and blueberry cake while visiting with you. Your backyard birds singing in the background were the finishing touch, my friend.
Oh, and you can keep that critter . . . they are B.A.D!
How do you do those arrows?
The Corner On Character
Oh, my! That scorpion! Love the fabric, though! And how cute are those chairs and ottoman?? I know your kids love your room!
Peace, Love, and First Grade
I loved our coffee chat today with Barbara. And it was SO FUN to surprise you. You guessed my identity with almost no clues… Now I know where Tanner gets his smarts!
Love the curtain fabric choice… the scorpion… not so much!
Sending you happy hugs!

Reading this post made me miss Texas (minus the scorpion!). My family is in the San Antonio area. I love Fiesta Texas and can I say how hard it is not to leave near good Mexican food?? Glad I found your blog!
A Tale of 2 First Grades
ughhhhhhh scorpions!! We don't have any here, but in 2 weeks we're going to Wimberley (rented a house on the river with family) and I JUST started thinking about scorpions.. see, we were planning on Ella sleeping on a pallet on the floor – but I would be so sad if a scorpion stung her in the middle of the night!! eeeeeek!! Also, my grandparents used to have Fiesta Texas season tickets so we *lived* there in the summer! Loved seeing all your Texas stuff!

Hello Mrs Sykes
Mrs. Cupcake says
Scorpions?! Ahhh, I can barely handle ants!!
A Cupcake for the Teacher
Scorpions…eek! That was not nice of him to be hiding under the water dish. Somehow I feel like spraying bugs like that with the entire bottle of Winded will kill them better than me just squashing them with my shoe. I hate home invaders!
Your Friday night sounds like mine. I'm sick of cutting already and school hasn't even started!
Primary Paradise says
Oh my word!! Scorpions? You're a brave woman. I wouldn't be able to handle it. Now roaches or spiders I can handle. After living my first 6 teaching years in portables, I can take off a shoe and kill one of those buggers in 2 seconds flat. Ha!
Miss Squirrels says
I like your maroon wall- it is a very relaxing color!
Dinner looks yummy! So does that pretzel! Your post made me hungry!!!!!
Go Nutty with Me!
Mrs. Wehling says

Crisscross Applesauce in First Grade
Bahahahah!!!! Ok… I shouldn't be laughing, but it's FUNNY! 🙂 I loved your diagram of your cat!!!!!
Miss Cosby says
Oh my goodness! Never thought I'd be thankful for finding spiders at home….I'd flip if I saw one of those. I have that creepy crawly feeling & want to check my covers now!
You Might Be a First Grader…
