No we did not practice, we are just that good.

If you noticed me and Ms. Thomas are wearing matching boots… since teaching together are wardrobes have crossed over into each others closets. Weird? Probably. 

Our MC, he loves being on my blog :)

After school let our I hosted our little ladies dinner to start the break! Below you can see my new glittered mug! My girls and I pulled names and bought mugs based on that person's personalitly… then we had to guess whose mug it was supposed to be for! So fun. My friend Katy obviously knew me too well! 

Lastly, here I am this weekend with my fiance's family going to dinner at the Ritz… how beautiful are their decorations!

First up… we had a surprise visitor arrive.

I created a little mystery activity for my littles to use their inferencing skills to guess what was in the bag… (thank you abby for the idea)

After I gave my students the four clues and the recorded them on their paper we created wrote our guesses on chart paper… however I forgot to snap that!
