Rogers Farm

Thursday our Pre-K classes ventured out to Rogers Farm for a fun day filled with hayrides, picnics and of course strwberry picking! I was blessed to have been able to share this esxciting day with not only my little ones in class but also "my little one" Bailey. With her class along with 4 other classrooms we loaded the bus and began our journey to the farm. I have never seen so many cute strawberry shirts and I am pretty sure TES bought out the new Gymboree strawberry line!!

Upon arriving at the farm we were met by the owners who I would likew to add were so sweet and very patient with us! We loaded up the kids and headed out on our hay ride, living in the country we take for granted these simple yet fun times, it is hard to believe that some of the kids attending had bever experianced this and it was great to see them so excited! We then gathered up in a barn to watch a movie which was filmed at the farm and were taight the proper way to pick strawberries ( not sur ehow many followed the rule!). After wards, we all gathered under the pavilions to eat our lunch and allow the kids to release some energy!

Once lunch was finished we headed out into the gardens to pick our strawberries- each kids was given a green bsket to fill as a little sovinier to brig home!

What a fun, exciting and memorable day!!!

Bailey turns 4!

Wednesday, March 16th, My little girl Bailey turned 4! I can not believe how fast time has flown by for me since she was born. Before she layed down tuesday night she said "mommy I am going to pray to god tonight that you want be sad tomorrow" I asked her why would I be upset..her response "because mommy I am growing up big and I can't stop"! My heart melted!!

Her birthday theme this year was a Fairy Garden Party inspired by a sweet  party I found on the website, the creator of the site actually had this party for her daughter Kate last year. I bought from her inviations, cupcake toppers and thank you tags, you can not beat the price and its all unimited printing! A couple of my friends from school came over friday night along with their daughters and helped me to set up.Keep in mind I have been planning this party since December, making party favors, birthday banners and table decorations however come friday night it seemed like we still had so much to do! We stayed up till about 4 in the morning and were up by 8 the next morning busy again! We had so much fun, I dont think I have laughed so hard in a long time-check out the photo's :)

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

I can say with whole hearted truth I have the best job, I love being a teacher! I love how involved the kids are with all of our lessons and seeing them this week all into Dr.Seuss and his birthday was a hoot! Of course my sweet daughter informed her teacher Mrs. Heather that Dr.Seuss would not be attending his birthday party because he was dead because he is old! Ok she actually told me the same thing the night before but went on to say "mom, dad said you were old too" well honey I promise I ain't dead :)

Here are some pics from the days leading up to our big party and of course the party too!
Made sure not to miss a photo op again!
