Yesterday my family and I had the opportunity to help out at our church, painting a GINORMOUS shipping container that we are turning into a fully functioning classroom to send to India! We are working with an organization called "Cargo of Dreams", and the mural we were working on yesterday is AMAZING!! Check it out...
Isn't it RAD?? (My daughter Katie is walking through the middle by the painted schoolhouse!)
We are also going to be filling it up with backpacks filled with school supplies and reading books, and we are sending over a playground so the kids have something to play on, instead of just playing in the dirt with rocks, like they do now! Which made me think how INCREDIBLY blessed I am to teach in here, with a beautiful classroom, school supplies out the wazoo, textbooks at my disposal, and a clean campus with lots of places for the kids to play! I hope this portable classroom will bring some joy to the kids in India!
Lindsay and I had such a great date night at our Grant Dinner on Thursday night...Here we are, all gussied up!
Lindsay made this one all artsy fartsy with her fancy camera app!
And, of course we had to take a "sexy" shot.
I know, I know, we're looking pretty amazing, right?? :) HA!!
Finally, a Sunday freebie for y'all! I actually posted this freebie WAY back last April, when we had like 12 followers, so I thought I would post it again today, since many of us are working on differentiating short and long vowel words. Plus, is it FAIRLY adorable, and will work in February or March, or Aril for that matter, since it is a ladybug theme! Kiddos sort the long and short vowel bugs into their correct jars and record the words on the corresponding worksheet! (Clipart by DJ Inkers)...

Hope your Sunday is relaxing and fun. Oh, and GO FOOTBALL!! I could care less, but I feel like I had to say something football related...While the hubs watches with his Dad, I'll be getting a pedicure! :)
