I am so excited for the TpT Teacher Appreciation Sale. I have loaded up my cart with so many units that I am so excited to use...even if many of them are for next year. Have you started loading up your cart? What are you planning on purchasing?
I had been working on a summer themed math unit, but never got around to finishing it. I am listing it as is for now...there is only 5 centers finished. I will add to it in the future when I get motivated. I think that with the end of the school year approaching so fast, I am just burnt out. Here are a few pictures of the mini math unit.
I will give this mini unit away to the first three people that leave a comment and tell me what you are most excited about purchasing during the TpT sale. Don't forget to leave your e-mail address in your comment.

It is crazy how Instagram has taken over the blog world. I was hesitant to create an account because that would just put something else to do, lol. I don't blog regularly like I should...am I going to be able to do Instagram.
Well, then I saw all the fun everyone was having and had to join in!
My username is: @swingingthrough2ndgrade if you want to come along for the ride. If you are an Instagrammer, leave your username in the comments so I can follow you!
Today was day 1 of testing - we have 3 more days to go. I am glad that I didn't have to spend this past weekend writing lesson plans because I was a very busy person. My best friend's daughter, who I have helped raise as my own, went to her senior prom. I was blessed that she wanted me by her side through everything. I'm going to leave you with a few pictures that I took of the day.
I love the picture above. My son, who is her best friend, was having a talk with her date.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! Has anyone been watching The Bible series that has been on the History Channel? I'm behind everyone else and have only watch the first few episodes. Today after church, I was watching it with my two sons and I was truly blessed to hear my oldest, who turns 20 in a few weeks, tell me what happens in his own words before it showed it. I have tried very hard to keep him in church growing up but never realized how Bible knowledgeable he was. I asked him when and how he had learned all those stories and he replied, "Mom, you raised me right - in church." How blessed I am for God to have entrusted me with two wonderful sons while we are here on Earth.
I am linking up with Farley and the April Currently.
Stop by and link up.
I have posted a freebie of writing paper for the spring. Stop by and pick it up if you would like.

Anyone up for a Spring Cleaning Sale?
I am throwing a SALE in my TpT store Saturday and Sunday - 20% off everything.
Thanks, Krista, for this amazing graphic!!
I have added a new unit to my TpT store - Bubblegum Literacy Centers. Below is a preview.
I am off to enjoy my last few days of Spring Break! We go back to school on Tuesday. The family and I are in Nashville for a few days and I am excited to go shopping and sight seeing...even if it is raining here today. I hope to be back in a few days with pictures from our trip.

Sorry friends for me being MIA for a while. There has been so much going on in my life, I hate to admit it, but blogging was not my top priority. I'm hoping things are getting back to normal - but I can't guarantee it.
A little history about me:
I was a paralegal for a law firm for about 6 years or so and then I decided to follow my dream and go back to school and get my teaching degree. I LOVE teaching! In the past month or two I have been questioning whether or not I was doing what God wanted me to do. After a lot of time kneeling on my knees in prayer, I got my answer last night.
See, yesterday in class we did this cute activity
I loved how they turned out. Here are some...
This is the one that helped me tremendously. "Jesus and God are worth more to me than gold because they will love me no matter what."
This is the message I got from his mom on Facebook before I went to bed last night
Maybe now I can start blogging and working on things for my TpT store, which I have neglected for so long.
Goodnight friends and God Bless!
