Happy Friday, friends! I am usually so happy to see Friday because the weekend is near, but I have been on Fall Break this week so today it means I'm closing in on the last of Fall Break!
I didn't get Fall Break in my previous district so I have thoroughly enjoyed my Fall Break this year! It was a much needed and has been a breath of fresh air!
Right before school ended for Fall Break, I received this sweet acrostic poem from a sweet student. It made my day!
For Fall Break we spent some time with family back home. The week prior to going home I saw an advertisement of a yard sale of a teacher who was getting out of teaching. I contacted her and asked if I could come a week later if she had a lot left. It turns out that she did! She gave me a GREAT deal on the picture books she had left and I ended up getting all of them! I got around 500 books for approximately 12 cents each!
Here were some of my favorite finds: a collection of Fall and Winter books, Jan Brett books, and Magic School bus books.
Here is another picture of some of my favorite titles!
I also scored two other GREAT deals. I purchased this straw dispenser (to use as a pencil dispenser) for $5.00 and a book scanner for $10.00! What a steal!
My son and I enjoyed painting some this week on a rainy day. We painted handprint acorns and a fall tree. He also painted a rainbow!
Yesterday we toured a school that we are hoping my son will attend next year. I was thoroughly impressed with it and would LOVE this to be our school home. I am planning on applying as well, but we are working on one step at a time. This picture sums up my thoughts and prayers for now. I prayed before we went and I am putting my trust in God that if this is where he wants either of us, he will help us in our journey to get there.
