Time to Celebrate

Hi Everyone!

     I don't know what the weather is like in your part of the country, but here in the NE it is HOT!!  I've been out of school for a week now and I feel totally recharged.  I gave myself this week to be a complete lazy bum because from this point forward, this summer is going to be a busy one.  We're planning my sister Squeebie's September wedding (so happy about this!) and at the same time getting ready to help my Dad go another round with the Big "C" (so worried about this - I can't even type the actual word.) I am completely optimistic that both will go off without a hitch and we'll all be smiling in the end. 
     In the meantime, I realized two pretty cool things.  First, today is the one year anniversary of starting this blog.  Happy Blogiversary to me! I've had such an amazing year sharing with, connecting to and learning about teachers from all over the world.  I am a better teacher because of it, and I thank you all for letting me be a part of it.  I've really enjoyed taking a peek into your classrooms and showing you a little piece of mine. The second really cool thing I noticed was that I hit 1000 followers.  Holy Moly!  How did that happen? 
     Thinking about all of the above,  I feel the need to celebrate.   I want to celebrate lazy summer days and busy ones. I want to celebrate bloggy milestones and sharing with friends.  Most importantly, I want to celebrate new beginnings (Squeebie) and happy endings (Dad). Are you in?
     First, I have a summer freebie for you.  Teaching money can be especially challenging for K-1 teachers, so I made a cute little math station game to help the kid practice adding coins. You can grab a copy down below the picture if you think you can use it.
     Then, the celebration really kicks off tomorrow with a monster giveaway .  Over 25 fellow bloggers have generously donated prizes so the lucky winners will have a whole bundle of terrific new materials to start the school year off with a bang. Be sure to check back in to enter!

     Again - thanks for the terrific year.  May you have many milestones, new beginnings, happy endings and lazy summer days of your own to celebrate!
