Happy Fall

We took a quick trip to my mom’s house in Hansville this weekendAudrey and I planted tulips and daffodils bulbs,    Easton put dirt from the mole hills into a bucket (my mom wants to use the dirt),,I put freezer meals into the downstairs freezer for future meals (chicken enchiladas and taco soup), we packed a few things into our truck to take home and we traveled the short journey to the lighthouse. A fun weekend with the two kids. I’m sure my parents are happy to have a quiet house again! I’ll add pictures later!

Last day of summer vacation!

Tonight’s walk was through Manito Park - the Japanese Garden, Duncan Gardens and all roads that go through the park. It was a nice evening. We ended it by going for ice cream at The Scoop!

Pictures tomorrow.

It's almost the end of November and things are starting to get a little crazy around here! We've had a horrid wind storm that caused much damage around the Spokane area. Thousands haven't had power for a few days. We were thankful we kept our power the entire time.

I used my three days of no school to clean my house for Thanksgiving guests (the sweet kids and their parents arrive Wednesday evening.), napped a few times, went to school to do a few things and then have been working on CWU assignments. The end of the first quarter is in sight! I only have three assignments left and I'll have my first two classes for my endorsement under my belt. 
Feels good!

Here's what I created for my mock library website. Click here!
It's definitely not a professional job nor are parts of it real.
 But it was fun to create and play with the different designs.

It's hard to believe that Easton Dean Bellamy turned FIVE on Wednesday.


If I don't get back to the website, I'll wish you a Happy Thanksgiving now. Counting my blessings as we go see "White Christmas" at the Civic Theatre tonight.
  Enjoy a bit of Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving!

Library Media Endorsement

The Library Media Endorsement from Central WA University is controlling the next 2 years of my life! It's a really good thing because I'll be a highly qualified teacher librarian when I've completed the endorsement & passed the test. Right now I'm living and breathing anything and everything about library issues and technology. This morning I cleaned my library while listening to 2 lectures. I worked on a Google Presentation before I went out to dinner and I'll finish another assignment before going to bed. Trying to keep things even keel and my life in balance is going to be a challenge. I'm trying my best! I'm already becoming a better teacher librarian as I learn more about my profession.

Back to School!

Spring break is over and we are on the home stretch of the school year. Here's my prayer for this week  -- Proverbs 31:26 "Her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness."
