Just a Hi!

Hi gals. I haven't been posting all that much because my two preschool classrooms have been keeping me super busy that I just haven't had the time or motivation. My co-teachers and I are required to make portfolios for each child in our classroom to show the growth they have made through the school year; I am personally responsible for 10 of the 31. I have to collect 24 obeservations per child three times a year and at least 8 of those per period have to be a pciture or artifact. I am trying to dress them up and make them kind of scrapbooky-like (:ROFL: is that even a word - scrabooky???) so the parents have a nice keepsake at the end of the year.

Anyways, with Christmas quickly approaching I have decided I need to take some time for myself and make some gifts so last night I cut out 2 exploding boxes (one for my mum and one for my best friend). I just have to get adhesive today and a corener rounder to put them together. I am also making a calendar for my mum and aunts with Kayley's pictures on each month; it's a kit I bought from Shabby Princess. Can't wait to share them all with you!

You sound like your plate is over-flowing. Glad you got some time to scrap a little. Take it easy...you can only do so much. I've really had to tell myself that lately too.

Thanks! I know if it was my child the portfolio was about I would hope her teacher would go the extra mile. Wink
