So glad we are out of school tomorrow...

Phew... maybe I can get some clip art done since I have an extra day off!  I have been so busy working on mini-me orders, doing stuff for school and trying to keep up with lesson plans that I haven't finished a clip art set in what seems like FOREVER... I've also been somewhat non-existent here on my blog and I have a million things to do here at home.  I'm tired of feeling like I complain all of the time... I don't mean to!  I'm totally blessed by everything that's happened since I started blogging, but there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day!  If you have the secret for making it all work, would you please share it with me?!?!? 

At least we had fun in the library this week!  I handed out call numbers and had the kiddos running all over the library in order to find their place on the shelf.  Their favorite part was the app I have on my iPad that I used during the whole thing.  It's called Schoolbell... and it was only .99! When they found the correct spot, I let them push the green button... and it would make positive sounds. (My personal favorite is when it plays part of the hallelujah chorus. lol) If they weren't right, they had to push the red button... and it would make sounds like a foghorn.  They seriously thought it was hilarious!  :-)  Since I allowed them to correct themselves there was also very little room for much embarrassment.  It wasn't about being perfect, it was about being able to use the library effectively!  They really did pretty darn good! (I've got to remember to take pictures of this stuff!)

Also, in case you missed it, I just posted some cute little FREE goldfish the other day!  I made them for a bloggy friend and I thought I'd give them away hoping to make you smile with the snack that smiles back.  lol

For all of you librarians out there... I also posted Week 5 of my lesson plans.  It's all about Patriot Day and talking about 9/11 in non-scary ways as much as possible.  I hope it will be of use to you! 
I also plan to have a 500 follower giveaway soon.  I just passed that mark this week on TpT, but I haven't had time to set up a rafflecopter yet.  If you've hung in there with me and you're still reading, comment below and let me know what you'd like to see me giveaway!  I will take all comments into consideration!  :-)
I hope you're having a GREAT looooooooong weekend!
