Book Study

Hello All,

Our wonderful Kindergarten Teacher, Amanda at Love, Laugh, and Learn, and I are looking at doing a Book Study with our Parents this year... optional of course.  I have been looking for books that would be great for both Parents and Teachers. I was looking at the Love and Logic books for starters, something that would benefit the classroom and home life.  Any other suggestions??  I would love to hear your input!  Thanks much!!

7.  Ready for this one??  I HATE picking grapes off of the vine. I dunno, the way my hands feel after doing it grosses me out.    
Now, for my nominations:

Obsession Confession Linky Party

**I'm way behind on this one, and too late to add it in (summer has really gotten away from me, YIKES)... but I still wanted to share.  

Living A Wonderful life is having a fun Linky Party about teachers obsessions. Check them out, I can relate to way too many!!

 Here are my obsession confessions:
1) Keurig/Magic Bullet
AHH-MMAZING! During Fall/Winter/Spring my Keurig makes me smile in the morning.  LOVE sitting on my couch in the morning with a hot single serve cup of coffee. Mmmm.  The, there is summer.  Nothing better than a morning smoothie from the Magic Bullet, that thing rocks.

2) Fitness Magazine
I used to purchase this every month but finally caved in and ordered a subscription... much cheaper.  Here's the weird part... I have to read it from back to front.  I don't know why but just do.

3) Scholastic Book Orders
OMMGGG do I love buying new books!!  I see a new book and HAVE to have it.  Haha. It's like Christmas when you get that cute white box at school!  My best friends daughter comes over just to "check out books" from me. 

I am from Green Bay... and I think it is a law that you must LOVE the Packers.  If I am not heading to the game you can still find me in the parking lot tailgating!  There is no feeling like Packer game day, it truly bring our small town together.  But, I also have to give some love for my Badgers and Brewers.  I love them all.  Can't wait for the Olympics, let's go U-S-A!!!
