Tie or Tutu?

We are TUTU excited about my brother's gender reveal!  As you all may know, I way out numbered in my household!  DAD, J, Matt, Myles, and our dog Dez are all loving that BOYS RULE in our home.

When we found out my brother and Maria were having a baby, we were overwhelmed with joy and started planning a gender reveal party.  The theme was "tie or tutu?". Mike and Maria had their sonogram that morning but chose not to find out a their appointment, instead the nurse wrote the baby's gender in a sealed envelope and they had delivered it to me.

Mom and dad wore white. We got a box, painted a heart and the words.  Inside is the secret gender color.

Now that mom and dad know, let's have some fun with PINK GLITTER!

And a little more fun with PINK SILLY STRING!


Needless to say, we are TUTU excited that it's a GIRL!!  I can't wait to buy her first outfit, give her some cheerleading ponytails with big and bright bows!  

Best School in the Universe!

Hi there!
I have been on the job for a little over 2 months and so much has been learned!  I definitely learned that I am at the best school in the UNIVERSE, Zavala Elementary!

I have enjoyed working with teachers, administrators and our Zavala community.
I am sharing some really fun highlights that we have had so far, and to think it's only the 1st of October, it has been a blast.  Who knew you could have so much fun at work?!

Did I mention that I love visiting classrooms and recently I had the opportunity to read to Mrs. Garcia's kindergarten class!  I read Splat the Cat goes on a school field trip.

 Each week I meet with each of our teachers during a "communication period".  I have loved this component of my new assignment.  I try to make each meeting unique, fun, and engaging just like I did in my classroom.

I recently saw my fourth graders from last year!  It was an amazing feeling to see them so excited and it felt like no time had passed at all and our family mentality still still stood true.

Thanks! See you soon!

Hi eveyrone! Mrs. Ayala here!

I am not sure if I have ever told you this but I really enjoy baking cupcakes!  
I thought this would be a great time to share some of my baked goodies!  I recently won a contest where I had entered Cupcake Cones for Fourth of July for Hello Society!
