I have literally just walked in the door after leaving for work at 7:30 this morning:(. I am seriously ready for my bed!


The children actually did pretty good for the double excitement of Valentine’s Day and snow!! We didn’t do much work, just a self assessment this morning that I’ll use for the report cards, but we had no major meltdowns or problems, so I count the day as a success! I got a lot of I love you’s and Happy Valentines Day wishes from my students:)

In the middle of the day we made Cupid’s bow and arrows with our buddies out of popsicle sticks, dental floss and q-tips. I think there’s going to be a lot of requests for these supplies at home as the kids really loved it!

This afternoon we took it easy with a Charlie Brown Valentine Movie. I prefer movies over parties with the children as they are already getting enough sweets and are excited enough already. The children seemed to enjoy the day 👍🏻

It was a late night at work though as my co-teacher and I stayed and got two report cards done. The first two are always the most difficult so it took us about forty five minutes to write each of them:(

At least I had a nice view coming home.


I completed the 2018 Winter Bootcamp Olympics today! 🤣 Lyndsay had some fun with our bootcamp this afternoon, and boy was it tough! There is no way I will ever be an Olympic athlete!!! I don’t think she left any muscle untouched in my body!


I had no real plans for Valentines Day and I am very proud that I gave away most of the chocolates I was given and then I took the rest of the chocolates and candies to my nephew this evening. It was nice to see him and I got a hug from my brother and my nephew so that was great! It was great to see all of them!

I continued out to Costco and got gas, picked up a package that came for me and grabbed some groceries. If anyone has a recipe for fish tacos they’d like to share, I’d love to hear it!


A few weeks ago I was given more chocolate tea ( really not to my taste) and Stefanie of Wooly Cakes and Wooden Spoons has said she would swap it with me for some Lemon Loaf tea:). Well I got completely spoiled! Not only did I get the tea, I got a beautiful bag, a fitness journal and some yarn along with it!! I will be enjoying all of these things very quickly! Thank you again Stef, it was definitely the best part of my day!!!

Well I think I’m going to go do one row on my sweater and then curl up in bed with my book.

Have fun!

  1. Don’t you love teaching elementary students? The parents always send stuff in to you!
    I’m so proud of the boot camp! I KNOW I’m nowhere near ready for that!
    Sleep well. I’m about to as well. 😴

    1. Yes I got three lovely chocolates which I passed along. The nicest thing was a Starbucks from a previous parent:)
      It was tough!

    1. I’m with you there! I don’t really like chocolate so chocolate tea really doesn’t appeal to me! I know! Stefanie completely spoiled me!

  2. Love Charlie Brown specials of any kind, so cozy to watch. Creator Charles Schultz was from Minnesota, so they have “peanuts” statues throughout the Twin Cities, pretty cool!

    Bootcamp Olympics sound like a blast!

    Gosh, you are spoiled ; ) That “fit happens,” and tea are quite the treat in different ways : ) Going to have to look for that tea, looks like a limited edition or special order maybe. Been on a lemon kick lately (have some Celestial Seasonings tea I’ve been sipping on, it’s pretty good).

    1. I always try to go with classic movies and books with my students so they get exposed to something different!
      The Bootcamp Olympics was deadly!!!!
      I was so spoiled and can’t wait to use all my new treats!

      1. That’s so great you do that! A much needed balance nowadays, and the classics are often the best (definitely the most original). I remember the teachers fondly that did that as it planted such a deep seed, and their passion was contagious!

        Seeing that tea inspires me to scout out a new flavor this weekend at the co-op : )

      2. Yup I want to introduce them to thins that are different- figure it’s part of my job:)
        Lucky you! I’m not allowed to buy tea for a good long time!

  3. Again, you are so welcome! ^__^ I had fun putting your package together, especially that project bag that can be used for anything. I hope the tea works out for you and glad you wanted it as it won’t go to waste.

  4. Wow!!
    You seem so kind that you shared the joy(chocolates).
    Sending positive vibes .
    And hey.. What’s Costco? 🤔

    1. I have to share as it would just make me ill!
      Costco is a wearhouse that sells to the public. You buy a membership. I’m amazed as I thought Costco was everywhere!

      1. Okay!!
        Good to know.
        Hey!! Connect with me on instagram @april_autumn12
        In India, I haven’t heard of Costco yet.
