One Thing Leads To Another
I don't know what's going on but I have been super productive and really energetic this week, both at home and school, so I couldn't resist writing a third post this week. :)
We have been needing rain for days and I was thrilled when it rained on me on my way home from work today. I was praying it would be raining at home too and was happy to see this view while I was riding down Willie Mae Lane.
It wasn't raining but definitely looking like rain!
And rain it did...or I should say it poured! It rained hard for about half and hour giving us 3 inches of rain! Such a blessing. My plants thought so too! After it finished raining, Mama and I went for a walk. When I got home, I took a few photos of my plants. I love my angel wing begonia. It is such a pretty color.
My hydrangea has it's first blue bloom of the year. It looks lavender here but it is the prettiest shade of blue.
Here's another one just starting to bud out. I love the green color when they first start blooming.
My sago palm is getting new fronds. They grow so fast. These were only about half this size a week ago.
These flowers reminded me of the flowers I got last week for teacher appreciation week from a few students. I have three little boys who have the sweetest moms. They have been so generous for every holiday. My little Aiden picked out the plant (an impatien) and the little plaque himself.
My Sawyer has a Pinterest mom...she makes the neatest things. She usually makes me something out of wood, but this time, she gave me a personalized tub full of goodies. The cup is so cute...it has a chevron apple with Mrs. Vicky in the middle. I love it!
The little white box in the photo above is so sweet. It is ceramic and I love that it has the word grow on it. I guess I do help these little kinders grow in many ways over the course of the school year.
My Jacob bought me the sweetest miniature rose bush.
I love the tiny blooms and the color is so pretty.
Speaking of tiny blooms...check these out. Two of my little sweeties picked these for me on their way back to the classroom after their speech class. :)
And while we're talking flowers....check out he spectacular artwork my kiddos painted a couple weeks ago. I gave them some simple directions and let them have at it. They love to paint! I love to watch them paint.
And since I mentioned art...look at these adorable piggies! They did these in art class with oil pastels.
I love the colors!
And that my friends, is all. I promise! Kind of reminded myself of the If You Give A...series by Laura Numeroff (which, by the way, I love!). I love children's literature. So many excellent books out there! Speaking of children's literature, if you have a young child or grandchild, there is the coolest book out called, The Book With No Pictures. My kinders absolutely love it! I borrowed it from a teammate, but I am ordering it from Amazon for next year. Check it out...:)
