If all else fails...Suck up!

I'm loving summer so much! My boys and I have been having a blast.  My school brain officially takes off in June and doesn't reappear until after the fourth of July but I promise some fun stuff in the future.  Until then...

Drew and I made this...
Just because it's super cute and my boys and the neighbors love lollipops! So how fun is it to choose from here? I thought it might but a great way to manage those kiddos in your classroom too.  

My thinking is to color some of lollipop sticks at the bottom with a marker.  Kids who are doing something super get to choose a lollipop. If they get a special marked lollipop then they get a little extra treat (stickers, sit by a friend ticket, special pencil, etc) .  What an incentive to do the right thing, huh?

Hope you all are having fun in the sun! Happy Summer!
