Finally a vacation...

So tomorrow my mom and I are going on a mini trip for 3 days to Elizabeth City, NC. I have been there but never stayed in a b & b there. Bed and breakfast inns I absolutely love. And if you have never had the chance to stay in one, you should do it. They have one all over and most have delicious breakfasts as well as the best scenery in town. But of course before I go (my next post may not be until Monday/Tuesday) I want to leave you with some things I've found.
 You definitely have to go over to First Grade Fanatics for their 3rd day of their 14 Days of Summer. Erica Bohrer donated a freebie but it is definitely an AWESOME freebie to the cause. Thanks Erica!
 Time 4 Kindergarten is having a giveaway to celebrate 200 followers.
For all those upper grade teachers, Vintage Teacher is having a giveaway to Reward a Friend. Hurry giveaway ends August 14th.
 Check out Growing in Pre-K for some neat ABC center ideas. I was just in Hobby Lobby today and I wish I would have seen this post before walking out of there. I would have whipped the block idea up quick before leaving for my trip.
 Head on over to The Teacher Wife so you can snag yourself a copy of these awesome postcards.

And as I stumbled upon First Grade Factory (I've never been there before) I saw a post for Class T-Shirts. A colleague and I was thinking of ways that our kinders would have matching shirts they could wear for field trips. But I might try to persuade my colleague to this idea and see how it goes... Mrs. Lochridge (First Grade Factory) has had her class t-shirts made before. The company is called Whitney Daniels Designs and the shirt only costs $7 and that covers the shirt and the printing. Isn't that awesome? I know you want to see what one looks like... here is one from Mrs. Lochridge's class. If you click on the link (or any of her names) it will take you back to her original post. Let me know if you are thinking about getting your class to do this. I wonder how it would be with kinders, but I know we could definitely do it since I want to try self-portraits the first week of school anyways. 

 Okay I've got to go to bed to be ready for our travels tomorrow. And maybe when I come back there might be a giveaway in the works to celebrate my upcoming birthday... be on the lookout. Enjoy your weekend.
See ya, Desiree
