[I'm baaaack!] and a spelling review freebie

Wow.  Spring Break was AWESOME!

We spent way too much money.  Played way too hard.  And really had a great time!

We *started* reorganizing the craft room/Grammy's room.
About half of the stuff we took out of that room is still stacked in the living room.
Sigh.  One day I'll get it put back where I want it.
One day as in BEFORE SATURDAY!
That's my goal.
Wish me luck!! 

Bubs spent most of the week at Grammy's house.  He went to "work" for my Aunt and Uncle on the dairy farm.  lol.  He made $31 and even swore at a cow!!  ;)

Little Miss now has glasses.  Picked them up on Monday.
She looks adorable!
Jelly came to play one day.  They spent the entire day together.
Seriously!  From 10:30 - 5:30!!

Yesterday we headed to SLC to Primary Children's Medical Center to see one of Bubba's dearest friends who has been there for over a week with a very rare reaction to pneumonia.  It was really hard for him to see her hurting so much.  Prayers for a quick and complete recovery for our sweet friend Cha-Cha would be much appreciated.
(No, Cha-Cha isn't her real name.  It's just what we've always called her.  She and Bubs were ballpark babies together, went to the same daycare, and attend school together).

It was a good blogging break, too.
I appreciate the comments left on the [sigh] post.
My thoughts are that I either need to suck it up and realize that this is how it is or stop blogging.  I don't want to stop.  So, I guess that means I'll have to suck it up.
Do me a favor though, please?
Make an effort to comment on blogs when you take the freebies.
Really, a comment doesn't take long compared to the time spent creating that freebie.

Hopping off my soapbox.  :)

Here's a fun little spelling review freebie for you.
My littles need to practice copying their words every day. 
They also need LOTS of practice with dictation!
My littles will be using this DAILY REVIEW packet (sentence editing, making great sentences, and math fact practice) each day this week, with SPELLING REVIEW (5 different activities) run on the back.  I think after a full week off, we're going to need LOTS of review!!  The FULL 10 page DAILY REVIEW pack is available on Teacher's Notebook for a mere $2.  If you need a quick and easy review, hop on over and check it out.

Have a happy week!
I'm thinking I need a break to recover from my break!!


  1. Glad to see you back! And, many thanks for the freebie!

  7. Glad you had a great Spring Break. I love following your blog and I'm so glad you're back!

    I wasn't as careful about commenting until I started blogging myself, and I realized how much every little comment makes someone happy! I think it's hard to relate unless you've been there and you have 100 followers, 300 downloads, and 2 comments.

    Have a GREAT week!
