I love summertime!  I usually only post about school-related stuff, but since I'm on vacation, I'll share a little about what I've been up to since we got out of school!  This past week has been full of slow and easy mornings, happy kids, a glorious cup (or two) of my delicious Keurig coffee, and absolutely nowhere to be!  Ahhh!  As a mom of four kids, this is my time to just relax and stay home with my little ones.  I haven't signed anyone up for swim lessons, day camps, or any other types of summertime activities.  To me, this is the one time of year when we can all just re-charge our batteries and do what we want, when we want!  Some of my favorite memories as a child are just those care-free summer days when all I had to do was get dressed and go outside to play all day in the sunshine!  I want my kids to have the same... so that's what we're doing, and let me tell ya -- it's wonderful!

Yep, our summer days sure have been busy!

So many ducks to feed, so little time...

Swinging and smiling!  Another summer day at the park! 

As you can see, I haven't been blogging much since my vacation started, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy working!  In between trips to the park, hanging out in the backyard blow-up pool, and making 462 snacks and lunches for my kids every day, I've been working on some new products for my TpT store!

In an effort to gain some more exposure, I've re-vamped my Spelling FREEBIE, and I'm re-posting it to share with all of YOU!  You can grab it in my TpT store here!

I've used these exact printables every week in my class for our daily spelling homework.  It's simple, easy, and fun for the students to use.  Here's a little peek, in case ya missed it the first time!  Enjoy!

    1. Thanks so much! Apparently I've been enjoying my summer too much, because I haven't been blogging hardly at all! Sorry it's taken me so long! I'll get crackin' on that soon!

  3. Haha, I had already published you as one of my nominees before I saw that others had the same idea. Oh well, you deserve it! Love the simple yet adorable blog design! Congratulations!

    1. LOL! Thanks, Kate! I've been enjoying every minute of my summer break, so I haven't really been blogging much lately! I'll get to work on your questions and re-post soon! Wow, so cool!
