Paighton and Ashleigh Day

Tuesday I was finally feeling better. I picked up Paighton from school while Allison and Sean went to pick up their car. We went to the library, fun- Ashleigh style, to pick out books for my preschoolers and a few for Paighton to read. I'm trying to get her to read Harry Potter, but she said she isn't ready yet. Hopefully this summer! She did do a fantastic job reading me jokes in the car, though.

After I treated her to a rainbow cone at Zip Dip while she did homework. We spent a lot of the rest of the afternoon reading and hanging out. Though it was just for a weekday afternoon, we had fun. I'm so happy that I get this time to know her better now that she's back from Italy.

Sick Day

The past week I have been too busy to breathe. I'm overloaded with work and exhausted but at the same time trying to keep myself busy so I don't miss Josh too much. I do anyway.
I guess today I'm receiving my punishment from my body. I woke up and knew I was going to get sick.
So I've been spending the day napping, catching up on magazines, watching Glee while waiting for the nausea pains to pass, and waiting for my Sunday call from Josh.
Hopefully soon!

Children's book V.2

The children in my room are rarely interested in anything for more than 5 minutes, but when they finally like something it they stick with it for weeks! We are still reading Audrey and Don Wood books.
I'm always changing characters names in the book to children's names in the classroom. It makes them laugh an more interested in what I'm reading. This week we have been reading Silly Sally and made it into our own class book. I printed off pictures of the children to flip to have them "walk upside down" and added their name to the repeated sentence in the story. I've done this a few times over the years but it also pops up with any search for Silly Sally on Pinterest.

Easter Weekend

I'm still recovering from the Easter weekend. I babysat, cleaned my classroom and the storage closet, didn't feel well, worked, then made my 3 stops to see family. I'm pooped.
It's rare that my brother, sister, and I are ever together long enough to take a picture. And this even started out as him trying to photobomb Katie and me.
Even though I'm still tired, I'm so lucky to have been able to see so much of my family in one day. And woot woot for a 9 minute phone call from the husband!

The weather has been unbelievable the past few weeks. Even when it says rain it saves it for the evenings. This coming from a girl who doesn't care for too much outside time.
I finally got a letter last night and a 20 second phone call from Josh while I was grocery shopping today. Yay!
I made dinner for my mom then helped her with some yard work. I've never cut grass before in my life and since I was wearing sandals, I stuck with weeding and trim.
I picked up these mint skinny cropped jeans from Kohl's Lauren Conrad collection. I still don't really know who she is, but I'm obsessed with this color!
