Teaching Heart's Back To School Party!

Teaching Heart has always been one of my favorite sites for all holidays, themes or anything classroom related! Colleen's awesome talents and fabulous ideas are right at my fingertips and usually just a click away! 

One day I'd like to learn  how to make my own printables, but until then I will continue visiting her site for the latest and greatest goodies. She has tons of Freebies (my ALL time favorite!) and CD's you can purchase that are filled to the brim with terrific content!

As a PreK Teacher, although retired, the beginning of school was always the scariest for me! Yes, even after 28 years that period before the big day was very exciting, but also very scary! Teaching Heart's CD's, ideas, shares and freebies made me feel more secure, more confident and better prepared for the 1st day of school AND all throughout the year!!

 I still enjoy all of her terrific ideas on making learning fun and I know you will to! So click on the links below and join her facebook page and enter her Big Back To School Party for a chance to WIN tons of her product! And when you do, and you know you will ;), tell her Laura from Learning Is Child's Play sent you!

School Has Begun!

My son started school last Thursday and my daughter started today! Where did the summer go?? This is the first time we didn't even get away for a "mini" vacation! My Grand has been sick, I was working a second job, hubby was working too and our favorite spots on the gulf were closed due to BP's oil spill!!

Ever since the kids were little we have always managed to get away for at least a weekend, but not this year! So sad! Poor things don't even have anything to write about for their "What Did You Do This Summer" essay! Hopefully we will get to plan one for Labor day! I hope so! I really, really hope so! All work and No play makes a Mama and her kiddos "Grumpy!" ;)

I hope those of you who still have some time left before school starts, get to enjoy a little family summer fun!
