Another exciting adventure coming my way is that I recently accepted a new job position! I will now be an instructional facilitator at Zavala Elementary. I will still be in the same district, but it will be at a different campus and I will no longer have my own classroom. This is such an exciting new chapter in my career but I will have to say that I am nervous and excited to be working with teachers. I am not sure it has completely really set in, but one thing is for sure.... I am already wanting to go and take advantage of all the back to school specials on glue, scissors, folders, binders.... etc! I will definitely have to find something to fill my void for DIY projects for my classroom. I almost feel like I would like to make themed classroom decorations and rules, etc for purchase.
Here is my family! Can you see that I am out numbered and our male boxer dog is not pictured! I literally have a pre teen who dislikes almost everything I say and my middle child... well... he's just that, a middle child with all that comes with that title! Myles is at the perfect age where he does exactly what mama wants!
Lots of trips to the parks this summer.
I love watching Myles experience the world! Firsties for him are my favorite! Here is his first time going down the slide without sitting in someone's lap.
Handmade shirt for 4th of July! He loved the paint!
Splashing water is one of his all time favorite things to do!
Another one of his favorites is to throw things! Here he is throwing our landscaping rocks! NOOOO
Loved this slide!
Myles' 1st birthday is a MONSTER THEME with bright primary colors! Check out some of the DIY party decorations I have been working on!
#1 Monster Pixy Stix: I paid 10 for 35 at our local Family Dollar Store, Print #1 from google images, print in any color cardstock, use a regular office stapler to staple the number one to the pixy stick tag.
Monster Invitation Envelopes created out of brown paper bags: I used colored paper, white paper, dot stampers, design cutters (scissors), glue, and slide the invite into the bottom of the bag.
Hobby Lobby cardboard numbers and letters: paint, colored paper, white paper, scissors, glue
Tissue Box Monsters: emptied tissue boxes, butcher paper, construction paper, white copy paper
Ribbon Decorations: Lots of ribbon, lots of patterns, scissors, glue gun!
Tissue Paper Monsters: Tissue papers into pom poms, add eyes and/or teeth
Hobby Lobby Cardboard Letters: Paint, paper, scissors, glue
Photo Shoot! Balloons, basket, cute baby, nice park, good weather
I look forward to blogging some more about my new job, classroom ideas, baking, family, and party planning! See you next time!
