OK, this may or may not surprise most people, but I don't have cable.  I was honest and said NO, that I wasn't watching TV.  I am officially a "cord cutter" and watch only what I want to watch on Netflix and Hulu!  How about you?

Bright Ideas Blog Hop - July 18th

Happy Summer!

My summer is just about to be over in a little over a week. I have seen pictures of people already preparing their classrooms. UGH!  I have a ton of boxes sitting in my house ready to go into the truck to head over to my classroom.  

Last year I think my kiddos were eating glue sticks.  They all brought in their own personal glue sticks and by April we were OUT!  I knew glue sticks were going to cost me so I came up with another plan.  One that I could use from year to year and consider it an investment.  I bought these bottles and filled them with glue. I found them on Amazon and if you click the image below it will take you to the ones I bought.

 Glue Bottle Daubers

These cuties are 2 ounce bottles and they come in a pack of 12.  I only bought one package and it was enough to make it to the end of the year.  This year I am going to have them out as an option for anyone that wants to use them instead of glue sticks.  

I added the liquid white glue to my "wish list" for my classroom, so hopefully I won't have to buy too much of it on my own.  I also had a shoebox tub that I used to store the bottles in so it all worked out.  Try them out and see what you think!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

CURRENTLY with Farley! - July 1st 2015

OK, I haven't watched children's television in a LONG time.  I am out visiting grandbaby #3 in California and loving every minute of it.  Tomorrow I have to leave my sweet baby and head back home and I am so sad!  

I have been taking care of her during the day and every morning we watch Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, which is basically Mr. Rogers animated.  So that is why I am listening to it with her because she loves the characters, colors, and music.

I am LOVING that I got to spend two weeks with my sweet baby and had such a wonderful bonding experience with her.  

I am THINKING about how I have to leave tomorrow and fly back to GA and get back into the real world again.  I know most of you are just starting your summer but in about three weeks I have to be back in my room getting it ready before teacher work week.  UGH!

I am WANTING to be able to spend more time with Anna, but I need to go back home...

I did not turn my "teacher brain" off this summer so I have been busy!!!  

ENJOY your summer no matter what is left of it!
