Busy, busy, busy! That pretty much sums up our past week. We closed on our home Monday and the work officially began this week. Jared has been working on the new house every night to get it ready for us to move in and it looks SO DIFFERENT! Grayson is super excited to move in and get ALL of his toys out...especially parking his garbage trucks under his bed!
In the middle of all the craziness, I have been working hard on getting my preschool materials ready. I uploaded a few new products last week that you can check out below...
These units will go with my new Week 1 lessons plans that I HOPE to post this week...I will get caught up, I will get caught up, I will get caught up!
Now, for some freebies! I decided since I was late and it's a long weekend to give y'all 2 freebies today! Enjoy!
Grayson and I are going to be having Mommy School this year, but we are off to a late start since we aren't in our new home yet. I will post pictures once we get moved in and settled. I wanted to go ahead and create resources not only for us to use, but for other preschool or pre-k classrooms. You can check out my plans and download and editable version below...
Back to School for my kiddos is a little over a week away. I am trying to get everything ready because we will close on our new house this Monday and will be working all week to get it ready to move in. The anticipation is building...I can't wait to finally be in our new home!
So, I decided to make life easier and reuse the same gift I gave to Grayson's teachers last year. I thought for a while about a gift I would enjoy and use as a teacher. I still have tons of notepads, pens, markers, etc. that I never used as teacher gifts, so I finally decided on something that I think most teachers would enjoy!
A BUBBA KEG!
I absolutely LOVED using my Bubba Keg when I was teacher and it was a staple on my teacher table everyday! I was a big water drinker (yes, I usually had a large Sonic DP, too), but I couldn't stand when my water was lukewarm before literacy rotations were complete.
Then at Academy one evening, I came across a Bubba Keg. After giggling at the name I noticed that it said drinks would stay cold for 12 hours! I decided to give it a try and feel in love...seriously I was head over heels in love with ice water at the end of each school day. Now, I did learn the trick to fill the keg up with mostly ice and a little water in the morning, but it was cold all day and that was what mattered to me. Another GREAT thing about a Bubba Keg is that is can be used for water, coffee, tea, Spark, and any other hot or cold drinks your child's teacher would like...TOTALLY PERFECT!
I was sold on getting their teacher a Bubba Beg, so I headed to Academy and picked up 4 20oz. travel mugs, revised the cards for the mugs, filled them with yummy Dove chocolates and now they are ready for Meet the Teacher!
And, as the post title says...you can download this freebie, below! The template comes with 4 girl and 4 boy pictures, as well as, an editable name!
The past few weeks have been a little crazy! We put our house on the market, had multiple showings (with 2 little ones), sold our house, put a contract on another home and moved out all in less than 2 months time! Needless to say...
We are moving closer to our church home where a lot of our friends and their kiddos live. So, while we are sad to leave a home that we love, we are excited to move close to friends we love!
It is definitely a bittersweet goodbye. Jared and I built this home together when we were still newlyweds and we brought all of our sweet babies home here (gotta include the fur-babies). There are many memories in this home, but there will be many more memories in our new home.
Farewell, Jones' Home 2007-2014!
We are currently in-between homes, but lucky enough that we have a mansion house available for us to stay in for the time being. We have had a great time swimming, feeding the ducks, watching the cows, riding tricycles, and talking to the horses for the past couple days. Grayson might not want to leave in a couple weeks!
Unfortunately, I don't have an internet connection in this house, so I won't be able to blog or update as much as I would like. I will be working the best I can during naptime getting my preschool and homework products completed!
