Second grade, here we come!


Feeling more than a little sad this morning as we send him off to second grade. He’s growing up before our eyes, such a sweet, cute boy.



But I can’t help but notice the changing smile as the years pass.



Second grade, here we come!


I can’t wait to go pick him up and hear all about his day. I think I’ll bake him a cake.

A Million Little Ways

I started reading this book a couple of months ago at the recommendation of a parent of one of Alfredo’s classmates. I pick it up, read a little bit, and let it soak in. It is such an amazing book. I love it so. I’m about three-quarters through and I find myself reading it even more slowly, just to make it last. So good…so good.

Happy Easter!


Easter party

This is what I love about being room mom for Alfredo’s class…


Easter basket treat cups, made with shallow cups from Target (I added a pipecleaner handle) and filled with Easter grass, Annie’s bunny snacks, a box of Starburst jellybeans, and a Peep. We have some serious allergies in our class so treats are always a challenge. These three treats got the green light from all the parents.



And these are the little gifts each student will take home. Aren’t these tiny bags adorable? Found them at Michael’s. Love the googly eyes! ┬áDon’t they look fun all lined up and ready to go?


My heart is singing a new song today. spring is here!


I love this adorable bird pincushion, made by one of the Truffle Pigs…Kim Stout, I think. The beak is a rolled up tape measure and the eyes are black snaps. So clever, right?

I’m rediscovering lots of treasures as I decorate for Spring today.
