Our last school day was Friday, June 5th and my sweet first graders surprised me with the cutest gifts for my baby and me! It was a total shock and surprise as I was not expecting anything at all, especially on the last day of school. Needlessly to say they made me tear up as I read their cards and opened up the presents.
It was also quite bittersweet to clean up our classroom as we headed into summer. The kids were so helpful and wanted to stack all the chairs and helped me stack the desks. It was definitely sad to see how lively our classroom was in August and bare it was to prepare for the cleaning crew to come through. However, I'm so proud of my firsties and can't wait to see all the wonderful things that they will do next year down the hallway!
My Classroom in August
My Classroom at the End of the Year
In the Meantime....
I have been enjoying the last couple months of my pregnancy and spending time with my family. I can't tell you how much I love summer, and being able to take family vacations to just relax and unwind.
Here are some snapshots of our trip to Florida. It was so wonderful to reunite with family as well as relax on the beach where we spent most of our days. Our lil' man had the best time splish-splashing, feeding live alligators, and playing with his cousins! And....I can't say enough how blessed and lucky my husband and I feel to have such an easy traveling baby. Sure hope our new bundle of joy is the same! :)
Our Maternity Photos
Speaking of our new bundle of joy, we had our family maternity photoshoot completed by Kristan Johnson Photography. Just as the rain subsided in Texas, we met and got the pictures done in a speedy hour. I'm so impressed and overjoyed with the results! Thank you, Kristan for capturing such a wonderful moment for our family! If you are in the DFW area, I would highly recommend Kristan!
My Baby Showers
My sweet first grade team threw a wonderful shower before the end of the year, and I couldn't have felt more blessed to work with such an amazing group of girls. My awesome faculty and staff also showered our lil' Lily and me with the kindest wishes and gifts. I can't wait to introduce her to my work family!
Baby Shower #2 was hosted at our house this past weekend. Besides it being an explosion of pink and pretty bright colors, it was filled with so much love and laughter from our friends and family.
I am participating in the TPT Seller Challenge with my fellow TPT-ers on Instagram! It is a 4-week challenge to help improve my stats and build my lil' store.
