It's a baby!! :)

It has been a little while since I last posted on this little blog, but I am back and have a little news to share...... I had a baby!!  God has blessed us with a beautiful, perfect little girl. She is our first child, and like all parents, we have absolutely fallen in love with her. We named her Amelia Jane. Being a mom is the most wonderful thing in the world and I am loving every minute of it!

This picture was taken after being in labor for about 6 hours.

My maternity leave was wonderful, and I enjoyed it immensely, but is has come to an end and I am now in the process of getting back into the swing of school. If you are a first grade teacher that uses Treasures, I have posted a lot of new resources on TPT. ( Amelia's nap time = time for mommy to work on TPT products!) Here are some of my new resources to check out:
 (For multiple Units)

(Click on the pictures for a link to my TPT store.)

 ( for Units 1-6)

Writing Journal Prompts

( I have units 1-5 complete. Unit 6 is in the works!)
Plus, much more!!
Although it was hard to leave my precious angel, I am so lucky to have a job that I love and have enjoyed getting to know all of my sweet new first graders! I hope to blog again soon about what we learning and acomplishing in first grade!
