Sunday Smorgasbord: July 27, 2014

My sweet babies just left for a trip to their grandparents house and I'm having a withdrawal already, so I'm going to get some school stuff done and then I'll be back with my post. But if you would like to link up to with your Sunday Smorgasbord, click below. Please remember to add the button to your post and link back. 
I'm back! 
I went into school to set up my classroom and I just have to tell y'all, I have classroom ADD! I mean do y'all start unpacking a box, walk over for a pair of scissors and start a new project? That would be me! 
We'll see what I get completed tomorrow.  Heaven help me! 

Here's the rest of my random! 

What would a post from me be without some shopping. It wouldn't now, would it? I am so excited about a new store we got down the road. Have y'all been to Alter'd State? Umm...I am so in love. The clothes, the jewelry, the home decor, the phone covers, all of it is amazing. Here are a few of my purchases.

As I said, I am already missing my sweet boys. When I was looking for pictures for this post, I came across about 140 selfies, Landon took. I love that kid.

He also learned to tie his shoes. I am so proud, and as you can see, he is too.
We are also proud of this sweet boy. He earned the Leadership Award at Baseball Camp. 
That's a big one for my shy sweetie.

Here is a student interest inventory I created last year. I tried to make it as simple as possible for my kiddos to complete at the beginning of the year. 

I use these name tags to label my kids cubbies. You can use them for whatever you would like. All of the graphics in both of these files are from the fabulous Melonheadz.

Did you see that beautiful stock photo in the freebie photo above? I just love using those photos. What I love more is that there is a site where you can get these photos for just a dollar. The search is awesome as well. There are so many beautiful photos to choose from. If you want to check it out, you can click below. I can't recommend it enough.



  1. I know how you feel. My little ones have been gone since Tuesday, and won't be back until this coming Wednesday. They went on a trip with their grandparents. I sure miss them, but I am getting lots done for the upcoming school year. Enjoy your quiet time, and give them lots of hugs when they get home. That's what I am going to do. :-)

  2. HI Michelle, I just linked up for the first time! If you'll notice, my random Sunday is kind of similar to yours :)

  3. How do I download the name tags? They are super cute, but when I click on them I only get the photo. Thanks!

  4. I want to thank you for sharing those CUTE!! beanie baby strategies. I had ones that were double the size and really loved that I could cut down on the wall space by using the ones that you shared. I was wondering if you have plans to do the ones that go with the comprehension strategies?
