Blog from my iPhone? Okay!

Just found the app that I can blog from my phone... This could revive my page, ladies and gentlemen!! My laptop has pretty much bit the dust, hence my lack of updates.

This guy has joined our family and house...

More about him soon!!!

We're building a HOUSE!

Again, it's been FOREVER since I've updated... but, we've been busy!  As you've probably seen on FB... we're building a HOUSE!  And we're SO excited!!  I'll try to be better about posting on here during the process... but I'll definitely be posting on FB, so keep an eye out over there, too!

This weekend we put in the construction driveway...


More to come...

Veterans Day 2011

I must be the worst blogger ever.  My apologies!

Last week Westin mentioned that they were going to be having a recognition for the Veterans at his work.  He told me how HR had sent out an email listing all of the Veterans and that there were 22.

What a kwinky-dink!

I have 22 students this year!

So, being the sly one I am... my students made Veterans Day cards for him to take to work on Friday.

I used my Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for my Cricut to cut out bodies.  They made all of the "gear" for them.  This was my sample... that Westin confiscated and hung up on the outside of his cubicle on Friday!

They are SO cute!

I tried to get them to rotate... for some reason they didn't upload the way they are on my computer.  Thanks, Blogger!

This one was my favorite:

Just look at that camo!!!

Later in the day Westin sent me this email from one of the gentlemen he works with:

Wes, please forward to your fiance. 
(Hmm... maybe he knows something I don't?!)

Miss Laser,
        I would like to thank you and your 3rd grade class for all the cards we received today. This kind gesture meant a lot to me and I am sure many others here at Parker! 
I think they were well received!

A New School Year

Since I last updated I have NOT found a full-time teaching job.  But that's okay!  I am covering a year long leave of absence at my old school for the teacher I carpooled with all last year!  So, since all of my stuff is in storage (aka: boxes in a trailer in Westin's mom's barn!) I'm really trying to go with the minimalist approach on decorating, or use the other teacher's stuff that's in the room already.

I went in this past Monday for about 5 hours, and here's what I've gotten completed so far:
(All of these pictures were taken from the doorway.)







So there you have it!  One day's worth of work... doesn't look like much, does it?  :-/

Don't worry... I'll be there ALL next week!

It's Summer... Take a Break!!

I'm going crazy with all of the fun teacher blogs I've found lately!
(If you're interested, they're in the list on the right...)

Westin told me last night I need to stop because:

A.  It's summer, and I need to take a break.

B.  It's summer... and I need to take a break.


At least he didn't bring up the fact that I don't have a job for next year...
