Another fun quiz!

My sister-in-law, Lisa, had this quiz on her blog. I love Disney, and especially Disney princesses, so I had to do it! Do you think I am like Mulan because I am often mistaken as Asian?!?!

You Are Mulan!

Strong and spirited. You're no one's girly girl; actually you are very determined person with a strong sense of self. Never let go of that! The only thing that equals your sense of self is your family, but the traditions of society can always be bent to protect something or someone you love.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

I've been hit!!

So my friend Terry tagged me! I have never done one of these before, so here goes it!

How To Play This Game of Tag: Post these rules on your blog. List: 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 current obsessions/collections, 3 random surprising facts about yourself. Tag 5 people at the
end of your post by leaving their names. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog!

3 Joys:
1. My husband, dogs, and family
2. Teaching
3. Food

3 Fears:
1. Bats, mice, rats, and any other rodent!
2. Walking from my house to my car or vice versa in the dark
3. Losing my loved ones (it's not necessarily a fear as much as a deep dislike)

3 Goals:
1. Finish my master's
2. Buy a new house and start a family sometime (don't get excited yet!)
3. Become more selfless and do more service

3 Obsessions/collections:
1. I am definitely obsessed with this blog!!
2. I collect Madame Alexander dolls
3. My husband would say I collect a lot of junk! (I think that's the teacher in me!!!)

3 Random facts about me:
1. I have never broken a bone (knock on wood)
2. I LOVE Chinese food and could eat it everyday
3. I have always wanted to work at Disneyland as Belle!

Ok, now I get to tag 5 of my friends. (ha ha ha)
I would tag Jaclyn, but she's already been tagged! So I tag: Kristyn, Ashlie, Lisa, Deb (if you can find time!), and Tiona (now you have a post for your blog!!) And anyone else who wants to! (i.e. Natty, Carrie, Amanda, Keri, Hodie, Amy, etc.)

I look forward to reading all of yours! Enjoy!

Teacher Appreciation Week!

This last week was Teacher Appreciation Week and our First Grade program. On Monday, 2 of my wonderful mother/grandmother helpers decorated my door, Tuesday was bring a flower for your teacher day, Wednesday was bring a school supply to your teacher day, Thursday was bring a thank you note to your teacher day, and on Friday the PTA gave us a HUGE box full of food and gift certificates. It was such a fun week and I received so many wonderful gifts! First graders (and their parents) are so cute! On Thursday was our Under the Sea program. We did a singing program all about the ocean. Jaclyn and I planned and put together the whole thing. Another teacher and her students were in it with us, but we did most of the work. It turned out really great. The kids were so cute and so excited to perform for their parents. It was a long week, but very fun! I will have to add some pictures when I get them. This was one of the weeks that I REALLY love being a teacher!! Also, Trevor starts his job tomorrow!! I am so excited for him! We have also started looking for houses!  I am definitely ready to move on!! Happy Monday, I hope you all have a fabulous week!!

Funny Video!

To all of the teachers, this video is so funny, especially since it is testing time!
It's all about what is on the test and "teaching to the test", thanks to good 'ol NCLB!!

The first pathetic item is that I am addicted to this blog and it is STILL under construction. Thanks for your patience!

The second pathetic item is that it is May 1st and I had to scrape snow off my car this morning!! It snowed 23 inches in Snowbird! It was also so cold today that we had inside recess!! The other pathetic part of this is that it was in the 80's on Monday and Tuesday!!! What's that you say, we are experiencing global warming?!?!?!

Just had to vent for a second! Thanks! Have a great day!:)
