Mondays are hard...

Oh my goodness! 
 So. Much. Paper. Work.
I don't think I have ever done so much paper work in my life! That and applying for a job has kept me from blogging. I won't bore you with the details because the only thing worse than doing paper work is reading about paper work. HA!

And because Mondays are hard...

So today marked my official last day as an SSI tutor for fifth grade and I am sad. I'm happy all the PW is done but that also means I no longer get to meet with my kiddos. :( 
I'm still on the sub list and we've got 11 more days of school left. I'm hoping I get called in a few times until then.
 I know I only worked with them since January but that was more than enough time for me to get attached. I even got to chaperone their trip to Sea World. We had a blast!

I ran into a friend (from another school) who was there with her 3rd grade class. You should have seen the disgusted look on her face when I told her I was actually looking forward to the trip. lol  
The two-hour bus ride with 50+ rowdy, students not so much, but I love my kiddos and I have always enjoyed Sea World. 

I made my kiddos a little end of year treat to beat this cuh-razy Texas heat.  It was 100 degrees today. Yuck.

 I printed the tags in black and white and added color by hand.

I wanted to save ink and I loved how they turned out!

I also baked a little treat for the 5th grade teachers I work with.

Not to toot my own horn but toot toot! It was delish! I wish I could send y'all a piece! :)

With all of the end of year craziness, I had to put my giveaway planning on hold. I didn't want to rush my first giveaway so I decided to put it on hold. 

 I have not forgotten about it!

 I may not have blogged often but I have been Instagram-ing! It's a quick and easy way to share what's going on. 
If you are not on Instagram, You. Are. Missing. Out.

And before I go...

I'm praying hard for everyone in the path of these tornados. 
Stay safe, friends!
