Where Has Time Gone?

My goodness gracious! It's been....*checks*...pretty much a year since I last updated. I'm so sorry. In my defense, I was busy getting married to my boyfriend. Got hitched Oct, 2017.

John and I

My Mum and I

Yep, you read right, I'm married now (there were some days I seriously thought that might never happen). It's been an untold joy, being with my man. John supports me in ways I cannot even begin to describe. Evidently, I do so for him as well (though he always seems be better at it than I). We went to Ireland for our honeymoon.

We also had the annual Gingerbrrad contest at our house with our friends (which I couldn't make, but they sent me the pics).

First Place

Secoond Place

Third Place

Fourth Place

And that's it for now. I'll try and write a blog each month again.

Grades 1-3 Field Trip

So, today we took our 1-3 grades to the fire station as well. They had a blast, just as their siblings did yesterday.

Kindergarten Graduation

Today my little students passed through the small gates of Kindergarten into the vast unknown (otherwise known as First Grade).

They were more than excited to begin this new step in their journey in life. And since preschool was with them so much this year, we decided to include her (far right).

They also had fun using one of their graduation gifts. Wait for it....BUBBLES!!

But, by far, their favorite moment (I think) was the surprise field trip to the Fire Station.

Mother's Day

Since Mother's Day wasn't that long ago (cough...last Sunday...cough), I decided to share with you the cards made in my little Kindergarten class, my own card, and my Mum's reaction to her surprise gift.

She got one other gift, but she picked that one out (an opal ring).

For my students cards, I helped them make Spiritual Bouquet cards. For those who might not know, it's a "bouquet" of prayers that you give someone. I wanted my Kindergartners to feel as if they could give their Mums gifts too.
There seems to be a running theme in all these cards. Can you spot it?

Card #1
Reads: I love you, Mom, because you give me Easter candy 

Card #2
Reads:I love you bekus youLet me hav kane
Translation: I love you because you let me have candy

Card #3
Reads:I love you Mom because you cook my food

Did you catch the theme?
It's all food based (two candy, and one just food). Tehe!

My own card
Reads: We cannot contain our love for you

Mum's surprise

That's all for now, folk! :D

Ramblings (aka old pics of the family)

So, I've been planning on giving ya'll a new post, but then my laptop crashed (thanks Windows 10). Tear, sigh.
However, I remembered I had a few pictures on my Mum's laptop of my family and thought I'd share them with you.

School Field Trip

So, last week the entire school went on a day long field trip.
I thought I'd share a few pictures with you all.

Me explaining things

(yes, I know, I look weird in the veil. 
In my defense, I had to tie it that way or it kept falling off)

It Snowed!!!

In case some of you haven't seen/heard in the news, there's been some snow over here in the US of A. Not a ton, but enough to go sledding. My little students were VERY appreciative of this.
