3 Years Already!?!

Three years ago I married the man of my dreams!

Who would have thought that a random trip to a sporting goods store would lead me to find the man I'd spend the rest of my life with! On that day I didn't only gain a best friend. I gained my rock, my shoulder to cry on, and an entire amazing family.

He asked me to marry him 3 years later on Christmas Eve. If asking someone to marry you while you have a 102 degree fever doesn't say a lot, I don't know what does. This man has determination and nothing is going to stop him from his dreams.

Our wedding day... I can still picture that day like it was yesterday. I remember sitting in my dining room as the girls were getting ready... I remember thinking to myself "Is it normal to be this calm only a few short hours before walking down the aisle?"
I can remember looking at myself in the mirror as I did my makeup.
I can remember pinching myself to make sure it was real.
I can still smell my bouquet.
I can still feel my father take me by the hand.
I can still hear the congregation awe as I walked down the aisle.
I can still hear my husband and me recite our vows.
I can still feel the smile as I walked out of the church.
I can still feel the butterflies in my stomach as we danced our first dance.
I can still feel the love that surrounded me that day.
I wish I could live that day over and over again, but when you marry the one that God has created just for you those memories are renewed each and every day. I am still thankful that he stole my heart and I in return took his last name!

I am in love with the lyrics in this song! It is almost like they wrote this song just for us <3

and for a couple of country lovers... this was our first song :)

Happy Anniversary Chris! Here's to many more!

First Grade Common Core Math File Organizer

After my marzano training the other day my head was just spinning. I knew I had tons of files that could be used to help me create my scales, but how in the world was I going to be able to find them!?

This freebie will help you organize all of your first grade common core math products under each standard. If you're anything like me you hoard your electronic teacher files. When it comes time to reinforce a standard with a kiddo you can't find that specific file you're looking for! This file organizer uses common core standards and codes to help you organize your products and it makes life a little easier!

Summer Professional Development...

Sooooo while many of you are sitting with your toes in the sand and an ice cold drink in you hand, I've spent my last 3 days creating Marzano grading scales for each of the ELA Common Core Standards. Now don't get me wrong, yes, I'm going to love having these as a resource throughout the year, but July, really?! It's so hard for me to give back my summer. *sigh*
