Y'all! What in the world is going on with January? I feel like it was just 2015 yesterday. Ha! No really, this year just started and it's already flying by. I'm not going to complain because I am totally enjoying my three day weekend at the moment. I may even take down our Christmas tree today. Yes, you read that correctly. My tree is STILL UP. Sigh. In my defense, we did spend the last eight days of the Christmas break traveling to Disney World and back. An 18 hour road trip there and back is not usually my idea of fun but it was a GREAT trip! My girl got to mascot at the Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day. So cool! My mom went with us too which was such a blessing. The memories we made with my kids and each other were just priceless! Before booking our trip, I told my husband if he was going to go and hate life (because he hates crowds of people and amusement parks, ha) to please save us a thousand dollars and stay home. No one would think he was a bad dad or husband. So, he didn't go. Ha! (Really, I was relieved because I knew he would hate it!) I felt like a hustler for months while I fundraised for this trip but it was so worth it. I am so proud of my daughter for getting All American Mascot and getting to experience the neatest things!
Here are a few pics from our fun trip! Public service announcement before you look: I am literally a hot mess. I had sweat in places you should never sweat y'all. It was hotter than the flipping sun in Florida while we were there. It is so weird to be somewhere in December and melting. I am super shiny in all pictures. I wanted to post on Facebook “Please tell me I look like I have lost weight, even if you are lying. It would make the ten miles a day and all of the sweat worth it!” Ha! Yeah, no one said that. Bummer.
2016 is starting out pretty sweet too. We added to our family this weekend. No, it's not a baby but he sure is cute. Meet Rudy Radke! Yes, he is named after the movie. My husband is a HUGE Notre Dame fan. Isn't he the cutest? He's a havanese and is the sweetest, most snugly puppy in the history of ever. I'm not even an animal person (don't judge, I love children) but he has totally stolen my heart!
He's just a little fat fur ball. He fits right in around here. Ha!
Okay, moving on to FEBRUARY! Over the past four years, I have wrote several posts showing what I do in February. I was looking through all of them today, thinking about what I need to start prepping. This blog actually serves as my planning memory. Ha! Unfortunately, I can't remember (for the life of me) what I did last year. It's a good thing I have this site because I get attacked by squirrels all day long. Ha!
Anywho, I thought I would share a few of my favorite pics with you from the previous years. You can also search “Valentine” in the search box on the top left of the site. Easy peasy lemon squeazy!
I also posted a new product yesterday. I created new February Math Centers based on what my students need to work on right now. There are eight centers in this set and I'm super excited about them. You can click here to see more.
Last year I posted these Literacy Centers and my kids LOVED them. I can't wait to bust them out for my students this year. And bonus, they are already prepped from last year. #Winning
