I married my sweetheart 27 yrs ago. We have an amazing son! We live next door to my parents and 3 miles from my hubby's mom. Family is very important to me. We have 3 dogs~I love my fur- babies! I enjoy reading, playing piano, hiking, riding bicylces, roller skating, and kayaking. I need to do those things more! Blogging is my new favorite pasttime. I teach second grade~my students are the BEST! Most importantly, Jesus loves me~and I love Him. He loves you, too!
Denise at Sunny Days in Second Grade is having an American Pride Linky Party. We have a cute little Uncle Sam pin which we make for Veteran's Day to be passed out to the Veterans when we have our Veteran's Day parade up and down the halls. It's made from a wooden ice cream spoon (the kind that come with little cups of ice cream), cotton balls, and construction paper. Students make a little hat for Uncle Sam with construction paper or foam sheets, use the cotton balls for Uncle Sam's beards, and draw eyes and a nose on with a Sharpie. Pins are glued on the back. I usually glue those on with hot glue because it only takes a few minutes and it takes a while for school glue to dry. Plus, I'm always afraid the children will put so much glue it will cause the pin not to work. Here's a picture! :)
