Be a buddy, not a bully...

Today one of the morning shows had the bus monitor who is currently at the center of the the bullying issue.   I get a lump in my throat each time I see the video clip of her (people can be so cruel).  Anyway she is now wearing a bracelet with the words, Be a buddy, not a bully.  I thought this would make a great reminder sign for my classroom as well as the hallway.  Here is my freebie for you.

I'm Early!!! for the Monday Made It...

I was excited to show off my baby quilt creation.  I made the quilt for a dear friend's first granddaughter due in about 4 weeks.  After receiving the baby shower invitation I visited the fabric store for the just right fabric.  My jaw dropped when I spotted the exact fabric that matched the invitation and that the proud mommy and daddy painted on the nursery wall.  It was a match made in heaven!  It is a joy to sew these quilts for the special babies!

I love teaching my 2nd graders but, I also love summer vacation!  So far my summer has been filled with spending time with family, gardening, projects that I didn't have time to work on during the school year, reading, and just relaxing.

Of course, blog stalking has been relaxing and so fun sharing your summer vacation also.  So far I've read many wonderful ideas for my next school year.
