Student motivation Linky

This week we ALL need to be motivated!
Link up with Joanne for 
SPARK Student Motivation

Last week of school..field day, assembly, cleaning up...
I MOTIVATE with ...

Wanna "finger paint with shaving cream?"
We clean our desk tops, tables, chairs, ( anything non electronic & NO BOOKS!)
A little goes a LONG way! 
Clean it up, wipe away!
Smells good, does it's job, doesn't stain, and DONE!
Enjoy the week!

Life IS GOOD!!!!

Thank you to all my friends!
My daughter-in-law is sleeping comfortably in HER bed tonight!
YIPPEE!! 
And granddaughters in theirs. Thanks for the prayers.

All I wanted for my birthday was a family portrait.
 My family came by train, 10 hour car ride, multiple work shift changes, 
and sleepy babies! BUT....WE DID IT!
Here's a preview....so excited! 
Real ones are better (phone pics OK, but just not the same).







Thank you to my family for the "gift"! 
I LOVE IT!

Good Morning! Is it Morning???

Good Morning EVERYONE!
I want to say a HUGE
 THANK YOU
 to all of my 
friends, followers, and participants of my
50th Birthday Bash Giveaway!
 I know I have been MIA this week....:( 
My daughter-in-law had emergency surgery on Monday.
Took out her gall bladder, but she has a nasty blockage & 
she's begin transfered to another hospital for more surgery.
ANYWAYS.....  
I am being a stay at home "Grandma" this week.. 3-year-old & 3 -month old!

THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE STAY AT HOME MOM'S.....
You ROCK!
WOW! Talk about being "on" the whole day!
(I thought field trips were tiring!)
When do you .....shower? do laundry?  pick up one mess before the next one starts?
I raised 4 kids & worked full time, while going to night school!
This is soooooo much more! ( More hugs & more laughs, too)
"Grandma.....we don't do it THAT way!"
(What do you mean you don't have macaroni & cheese for breakfast?)
AND...little Bella...
I'm sorry I can't nurse you!
I know..this "thing" is called a bottle..
I know you REALLY don't like it BUT....
WOW! We are enjoying ALL of this...
Daddy is ...stressed, teary, driving from hospital & back,
and DETERMINED to tuck his girl's into bed EVERY night!
We have raised a FANTASTIC daddy!
So...if I missed you for anything this week...
Wake me up when school is out! :)
(I'm fingerpainting with Payton today after I feed Bella!) YIPPEE! :)

LINKY!

I LOVE A LINKY!
Thanks to LaToya..

( And today is my big 50 bday...so I get to do WHATEVER I WANT!) :)
Linky Questions
1.  What made you decide to become a teacher?
My sister was a teacher first. She had so much fun  & SO MANY VACATIONS! :)
I also had 3 kids at home...a natural job choice.
2. What has been your most rewarding experience as a teacher?
I work with low economic famliles. When the kids come back & tell me their success stories, I remind them....your first grade teacher taught you "EVERYTHING!"  We, laugh & agree!
Just knowing I had something to do with these successes...makes me want to come back each day!
3. If you were not a teacher, what would you be?
Probably a nurse, or other "helping" profession.
 If I hit the lottery, I would own a bookstore & coffee shop...
FREE BOOKS FOR ALL!:)
Happy MONDAY...and THANK YOU FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES!
