Monday Made It!

Two weeks from today is our first day of school - I almost feel like it will be a vacation to go back. I'm linking up with Tara from Fourth Grade Frolics for Monday Made It.

No cute crafts, but I worked extra hard to get my whole year's worth of ELA sheets done for the TpT sale.  I have three front and back differentiated sheets for each week, plus 2 colorful posters to go with the coordinating quote for each week.  8 sheets per week for 30 weeks - that's 240 PAGES....  Then there was the painstaking proofreading, fixing, and then getting ready for my store.  I'm super glad that I'm using these, and I really like them, because there's NO WAY I'll make enough money on these to compensate for my efforts.  But that's what it's all about, making things for yourself, and any money is just a nice bonus.  So here's my product for anyone using McGraw Hill Wonders - 4th grade.  And like most everyone, my whole site is on sale for 20% off.

240 sheets for $9.  BUT only $6.50 through tomorrow's TpT sale.

I posted some pictures in earlier posts, but I'm celebrating the fact that I "made-it" home safely and sanely from a 2,650 mile drive vacation from Toledo to Saint John, Canada.  It was a great trip with my kids and my dad.  I won't bore you with details, but we created memories my kids will never forget.  Interesting fact (and the reason for our trip into Canada), the Bay of Fundy has the biggest tides in the world.  Where we were, we saw the tide rise 28.5 feet in just 6 hours.  Here is one photo at 9 am, and another at 3 pm.

Another thing I'm celebrating is that the water ban has been lifted.  Toledo (which I'm located in a suburb of) made national news with their water crisis.  Thank goodness I checked FB while waiting for my coffee to brew Saturday morning.  Otherwise, I would have drank the coffee with water that contained toxins that already were affecting me from the water I drank before bed.... Not fun...  So 48 hours of fun:(  Ban has been lifted, but we will be drinking bottled water for the next few days just in case.


On a happy note, I think my new blog design is almost done.  I'm going to show a preview here so that you can do some comparison to what I have.  Hopefully my next post will be with the new design in place. 

Happy Monday,
