How is it almost March and we haven't had a snow day yet? I've heard so much about the East Coast getting tons of snow, and out West they have gotten a lot too....BUT NOT HESSTON! Snow is in the forecast for this weekend for us, so we'll see about possibly Monday. (Doing my snow dance now!!) :)
Anyways, Aaron and I have had a busy week with work and school work (for both of us). Did I mention Aaron has been in school over a month?! It's flying by! He is liking his 5 classes and getting good grades!! This week he showed me a grade book, made in Excel, for a pretend class of kids. He gave them grades, put formulas into the document to calculate their final grades and cumulative grades! I think he really likes the grading part of teaching. He is already an awesome teacher! I have seen his love for books growing as well :) I'd like to say that I have had some influence in that though. hehe
So last weekend we planned a trip to see Aaron's family. We made it a very quick visit and made the most of our time! We did lots of fun activities including IHOP for Saturday morning, playing with Makenah and Logan, bowling in the afternoon, a delicious lasagna dinner, and games to end our busy day. Sunday it snowed all day out West so we got on the icy roads and headed home in our Chevy Cruze. Love that car! We drove about 35-40 MPH the whole way home.
This was Makenah and Logan's first time bowling! They got a cute red, light, ball to use and bumpers in the lane! No naps meant for a couple good cries. Uncle Bear (Aaron) was consoling sweet Logie.
The Stuckys! Love them!
My handsome man!
Snack break! Popcorn and cookies!
You can't leave the bowling alley without playing the arcade games!!
ARE YOU READY FOR A BIG POP OF COLOR IN YOUR LIFE!??
Welcome to the hallway leading to my classroom! I have 2 of the most creative and artistic paras in the whole school! Basically what usually happens with the bulletin boards is I tell them what themes are coming up and we do a little Pinterest looking and researching for fun ideas. Then....a few days later the girls have the most amazing 3D bulletin board ever! The kids love looking at it and it really makes the school so inviting! March is the month we celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday so it seemed fitting to deck the halls!
For art next week the kids will use their hands to make fish and Thing 1 and 2. The books are 1 fish 2 fish, Red Fish Blue Fish AND Cat in the Hat! We will be reading so many other books but this is the art activity!
Love the truffula trees! (paper towel rolls painted black and wrapped with yellow streamers)
Here is our door for the month of February. Green Clovers are about to make an appearance next week!
This week we learned all about going to the Dentist! We did lacing with foam teeth cutouts (flossing teeth!), and marshmallow teeth mouths.
I wanted to add a few other pictures that made me happy this week!
Buffalo Chicken Pizza topped with Red Onions.

My snowflake Jamberry nails & pig timer. ha! Thanks Nate and Maggie!
And to top off the week....Chocolate Mousse from Applebees! I went with a group of girls from school after we finished work this evening.
Currently I am ending my night with some homemade Chex-mix, thinking about my Yoder family who are all spread out. I remember all the times mom made us Chex-mix and we couldn't wait to eat it so we burned out tongues when it came out of the oven. Anyways, I'm hoping for snow this weekend. Love you all!!
