Hey, everyone! It's been awhile for me (Crystal) on our lovely blog, so I thought I'd make it a special one! I have decided to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday! I have always loved reading everyone's posts, but never linked up! There have been some fun things going on in my 1st grade classroom and life, so I figured this is a great way to share out. I hope you enjoy my first link up!
This isn't the only meet up I'm attending though... on Friday, Carrie from Table Talk with C & C and I are flying to Dallas for the meet up there!! I am good friends with Ashley and Amanda from For His Glory and so thrilled to be a part of their special meet up. Stay tuned....
Recently, I bought my first Stella & Dot purchase. I'm so in love with my bag and wallet that I decided to host a show! It's an online show and is running now until November 7th. Check it out!
The third thing I want to share is that I'm finally running again. If you read any of my previous posts, I ran my first marathon in May. Well, since then, I had some cartilage damage and IT band issues, so couldn't run. Finally, after a lot of physical therapy and strength training, I'm slowly starting to run again. With that being said, Ryan and I are looking into so many fun trips for races. Right now, we have The Flying Pig Marathon in Ohio, some that we are looking at in Charleston, SC, and then a big one (Germany, California, or Hawaii) over spring break! (It probably won't be Germany, but one can dream!) Now, I won't be ready for the full again quite yet, so I'm just doing the halves. However, I'm so excited to get back out there! This is my motivation:
I'm LOVING my class this year. They are the cutest little kiddos and really working hard. We also love whole brain learning. As a Responsive Classroom School, I have found that these two ideas fit well together. Check out this video:
Finally, we have something REALLY big to announce for the month of November. We have teamed up with some of the best of the best to provide you with a great opportunity to give back. Stay tuned... :)
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
