First, GIVEAWAY REMINDER!!
You could win this awesome stamp set & $20 Gift Card to DOLLAR TREE!! Look at my previous post!!!!
Second, Glad for Early Back to School Sales
My classroom is set up with 5 table groups which are labeled by color and every year I buy a new sets of markers (classic, assorted, & thin) and colored pencils. Last year I finally decided to try to label all of the markers and pencils, but I ran out of time and never completely finished.
Thanks to early sales I've got one table completely ready and am cruzin' on through the rest! The labels are apples of the color of the table group: Red, Blue, Purple, Green, & Red
Tape strips really make the job a quick one!
Third, Asking for Prayers
This last week has been busy and tiring. Last Thursday (a week ago) night my mother-in-law went into the hospital. She has been in a hospital about 50+ miles away from my house and I've been going to see her every day. There are a couple of ways things could go Monday. One doctor wants her to go home, get stronger, and in 2-3 weeks have open heart surgery...replace aortic valve and a double bypass. Then 4-6 weeks later have surgery to repair a hernia. The other doctor wants her transferred Monday to another hospital for the heart surgery, moving things up the two to three weeks. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors and for her health. Thank you!
Fourth, Thanks to Bloggy Friends
Thanks to the Bloggy Friends (sorry I can't remember which ones specifically) who have shared what a versatile program Powerpoint really is!! My daughter and I made this card for Grandma using Powerpoint!!
I never would have thought to use this program for worksheets, posters, and cards on my own!
