Back to School

Today was my first day of school! Twenty one super cuties entered the classroom with new backpacks, new shoes, school supplies and a huge smile on their face.
Procedures and more procedures filled my day...but it was a good day!
I barely slept last night thinking about them, and right now I am exhausted.  I will remember to take some pictures and report back tomorrow.

It is going to be a fantabulous year!  I want nothing more and they will get nothing less :)

Must Have Books

I have to confess...chapter books are not my thing.  Picture books make me happy!!! When I so this linky I knew I had to
share some of my faves :)

1) Beatrice Doesn't Want To:  I use this book every year to introduce summarizing. Beatrice refuses to go to the library with her brother until she discovers reading.  Great for making connections!

2) Don't Let the Peas Touch!:  Sophie and I have something in common. We are both picky eaters!  I use this book to make connections and share about our siblings.

3) SkippyJon Jones:  I read this to 'show off' my rocking Spanish accent :)

4) My Lucky Day: All I can say about this one is... piggies are really smart animals.  Great for making predictions.

5) Miss Smith's Incredible Storybook: Characters come to life in this book read by a second-grade teacher.  The best illustrations!

I hide them all in here: 
Where do you house all your favorite books?

So far...

Hubby drove 10 hours on Sunday as  I heard  "Are we there yet?, Is the hotel near by?"... twelve times.  My daughter said it felt like eternity...she is just as dramatic as her mom :)
Today the rain was not nice to us, so we decided to go to Downtown Disney to do some shopping.
Whenever you are itchy... you must use what you have available and hug Mickie was tight as you can!

Animal Kingdom. Magic Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon have been a hit so far.  Looking forward to taking pictures with every single princess we find. 

Giveaway coming soon!
