Tuesday thoughts

My thoughts this morning as I sit outside…

Dreary
But a break from constantly watering my flowers

Cloudy
But no sun causing me to sweat profusely

Cool
But nice to have a break from the heat wave

No air conditioning this morning
But getting a new window and at least not a steamy day

Colossal Curl

image

This summer we went to Williamsburg, VA. Water Country U.S.A. was one of our favorite places.

Looking at the water slide was a bit intimidating. Huge slide with twists and turns every which way with COLOSSAL sides of the slide that look a bit frightening. We got to the top and onto the ride. It was Cindy, Mikayla, and I on the tube. No turning back now. At first, not bad at all. Thinking…Colossal? Really?

Then…

BAM!!!

We were flying around the slide. This way and that way. Up and down. High up one side of the slide.

SPLASH!!!

WHOOSH!!!

Screaming and laughing until we reached the bottom. WOW!!! WHAT A THRILL!

Happy Anniversary

image

Today is our anniversary. I couldn’t imagine a better husband to travel this journey called life. It’s been 8 years that we have been married and life has thrown us some curve balls, but we couldn’t be closer or stronger. We also had our share of amazing times, too. He is truly the best!!!

I love you
For your never ending love and support.

I love you
For being by my side through all the endless doctor appointments, tests, procedures, hospital stays, and surgeries.

I love you
For sticking by me through the tough times.

I love you
For all the great times we have shared.

I love you
For your humor and making me laugh.

I love you
For always helping me stay positive.

I love you
For being the amazing man and husband you are.

Happy Anniversary!!!

Here are some words and phrases that describe the event:

Our Poetry is Inspiring

image

My K writers were eager to  dive into Poetry Month! We wrote many different poems (some I shared in previous posts)! We then created front and back covers to compile our poems into a poem book. We took a break from our regular book making in April to write learn more about poetry and write our own!

Our excitement was contagious! We even inspired another K classroom, Mrs. Speers’ class, to write shape poems after looking at our poem books! Funny thing is I just discovered that I never took pictures of our shape poems! I just have the shape poems I shared with my K writers. Mrs. Speers’ class did an amazing job though! Mrs. Speers and her K writers are excited about poetry. YAY!!!
