Currently February 2015 Edition

My favorite day of the month!

Our family has been working our way through the Harry Potter series.  Last night we finished book 3 and then watched book 4.  My girls are obsessed and are currently playing Harry Potter.

My youngest has had four cheerleading competitions this month plus practices.  I've spent every weekend driving around the Twin Cities.  I LOVE seeing her cheer but am grateful the season is now over and I can have my weekends back.  Isn't she cute?

Koo Koo Kangaroo is coming to our school this month and I'm so excited!  My team ordered some shirts and I'm on a mission to dye my shoes gold. 
The best part is that I get to perform Pop See Ko with them up on stage!  Can't wait!

We've been in our house for over 10 years now and it shows.  I REALLY want to get new floor and counter tops for our kitchen.  I can't decide between tile or wood (right now we have linoleum).  Anyone out there have any advice?

I got a SUPER exciting e-mail the other day asking if I would present at the Minnesota Kindergarten Association Spring Conference in April.  Me?  Sure!  I am speaking for two 75 minute blocks on guided reading.  I've spent a good part of today brainstorming and planning.  If you live in or around Minnesota and want to see me, Shari Sloane, Mr. Harry Kindergarten and author Nancy Carlson, click below to find out more!

  1. Oh my word, Ia m so jelly that Koo Koo Kangaroo is coming to your school! I tried to get them to come to my school but my principal didn't like the price tag. I am thinking of writing a grant for it to happen. Have fun and post lots of pics!
