I'm back... catch up time!

Hi everyone!  I have had a crazy start to the new year.  You don't even want to know why I haven't had internet access at home (unless you realize that 3 kids with 3 new ipods + wi-fi internet = huge $$$$$)!  I have heard stories before and thought that would never happen to me... I have to BITE my tongue.  Seriously, I did not know there was a limit on GB usage... and evidently it can happen fast.  Once it was explained to me, I deleted my device from those ipods and let's hope my next bill will be back to normal.  I will have to say my internet company had pity on me since instead of 3 0's, my bill is down to 2 0's but what a fiasco!  So... I'm back to blogging and thought I would catch up a bit.
My kiddos wrote their goals when we came back to school.  Yes... I'm that far behind.  Some of my first graders really put a LOT of thought into their goal. So our door reads "Ringing in the New Year!"  Here is a picture:

I have to share some of their fabulous goals so take a look at these up close!

Awww... that just melts my heart!

I know what song comes to mind when I read this one.... :)

What a great goal!

I guess I have some musically talented first graders!

I also wanted to share with you our homemade snowflakes.  We read the book Snowflake Bentley and then created our own snowflakes from paper.  To make them more sturdy we glued them to blue construction paper and then on the back the students were to write what would happen if they were snowflakes?  I saw a lot of creative writing.  Here are some pictures of how they turned out:

I LOVE this one!  How adorable!
I am glad to be back blogging.  I have a few more things to share but will create seperate posts for those.  Happy Saturday!
