Shelf and Stepping bench

This is a picture of my new Promethean Board Stepping Bench!  A friend of mine made it and the kids just love it.  They can now reach the top of the Promethean.  Now they won't fall off the chair!!

Here's my new 8 foot shelf.  I am priming it right now.  I wish I had more time to keep painting.  I'm going to paint it green.  I can't wait until I finish.


I got Burned!

I was gone for the weekend and I came home to find out Reagan from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits blog had nominated me for Blogs on Fire!  I'm honored with this.  I haven't been able to blog as much as I would like because my class has been pretty demanding this year.  But as things are calming down a bit I am trying to get back into a passion of mine!  Blogging!!

Here are 7 things to share with you about myself!

1.  I have been married to my husband for 18 years and I am looking forward to sharing my 60th anniversary with him when the times comes just like my aunt and uncle did this weekend!

2.  I have 5 children that we have adopted.  Three we adopted from foster care and the other two were domestic adoptions.  Foster care has changed our life and we are so grateful that our lives were led in this path.   There have been challenges I will admit, but we wouldn't change a thing.  Ok, maybe to get more sleep! 

3.  I am more than excited to be done with diapers!!  My three year old is finally potty trained.

4.  I am addicted to my morning soda.  Especially, Mountain Dew!

5.  I love reading and there are many times I should be doing something else!  I just read Taken by Barbara Freethy.   I love her as an author and you should all find a book by her and read it.  Go to her site!  All the books are great.  She is great at weaving mystery with love and romance! 

6.   I can't stop thinking - it's a good thing and a curse.  I am constantly on the go with ideas about school or other things and some times I can't sleep.  Last night I was trying to come up with a costume and when I fell asleep I dreamt I was a ketchup bottle and my coworker was a hotdog!  I still don't have a costume idea and it's time for bed!!

7.  I teach at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater.  I am an adjunct faculty for the Early Childhood program.  I just finished a course where the students were afraid of 1-3 graders and they came away loving this grades.  I am so proud of them and I love sharing my passion of teaching.  I even think I got a few hooked on blogs!!

 Here are my 7 blogs that I am giving this award to!  You guys are all great - this is hard to choose!!
