End of the Year...Two Weeks Later

Yes, I said two weeks later. I don't know what happened to me I have hardly blogged this whole year. I would think about it, but never sat down at the computer.  Maybe this summer I will do better...maybe.

These are a couple of pictures I took for Mother's Day gifts.
I love this one, "She helps me spell Oklahoma."

Great job to this mom, "You help me get a better education."

I bought frames from Dollar Tree. I put a label on the back that said Mother's Day 2014. 
I think they turned out cute!

When we were studying Oklahoma, we found a bunch of tiny Rose Rocks (our state rock) out on the playground. I guess they were dug up during all of the construction. We found a bigger one that was barely sticking out of the ground so these two girls spent their recess excavating.

Here are a few pictures from Super Kids Day. Delaney was already out of school and joined in the games.

 At the end of Super Kids Day, the kids got a surprise when one of the fire engines came to
school, hooked up a hose and gave them all a cooling spray!

We had a fun-filled last day of school. Most of my kids came even though we weren't out until
June because of all of our snow days. Here are a few pictures.

Minute to Win It Games

Cleaning the desks with shaving cream

I took pictures of all of the kids with a few photo booth props. I thought 
Delaney did a great job posing them.

Just for fun I thought I would do a couple of side by side pictures of the first and last day.

Here's one last picture, a few kids were absent.


Hope everyone is having a terrific summer!

Pin It!

    1. Thanks Alyce! I still haven't forgotten the blogger meet up. I'm going to see if I can get something going for late July.

  2. You have some great pics there. Love the Mother's Day and shaving cream!

    1. Thanks Barb! Delaney was doing the shaving cream with them. She had some right under her eyes as she was telling them to not put it on their face. ;P Of course they didn't listen to her.

  3. What cute pictures! Here's hoping we do not have too many snow days next year! Have a great summer. We really do need to have an Okie blogger meet up sometime!

    1. Tammy, you read my mind. Alyce from Mrs. Bartel's School Family and I have been discussing the idea of an Okie/Kansas blogger meet up. She thought a Friday would be a good day. I have been trying to think of good place to have it. It would be nice it it could be someplace besides a restaurant so they aren't trying to run you out to seat other people. Maybe someplace "Cowboy Hall of Fame. they have a cafeteria inside. Let me know what you think.

  4. I have missed you, my bloggy friend. I love, love the pictures - I mean the ones of your kids - the beginning and end and the Mother's Day. What great ideas!

    1. Thanks Sara, I have missed you guys too! I just couldn't get myself motivated to sit down and write. Hopefully this summer, I can catch up on a LOT of reading and get back to blogging again! :)

  5. I really enjoyed looking at your pictures, I've never been at a school with a fire department coming and spraying the kids, what an AMAZING IDEA! I love it!

    1. Thanks Fern! the kids were beyond excited while the firemen were hooking up the hose. I guess that is a perk of teaching in a small town. : )
