Wiped out!

This is such a hectic and stressful time. We've got some family things going on, school stuff and today alone I got home at 3:00, and have been baking ever since. I just finished. I made 2 loaves of Beer Bread for the Classified Luncheon tomorrow and two dozen Strawberry Cupcakes with homemade frosting....

It's time to just sit back and relax.

Well, I was looking at what I'd need to do to get my teaching credential in the state of Texas. UGH.... I have to take yet another CSET like test. That test was just awful. There are certain states that have the equivalent test that Texas has... unfortunately, California's test isn't on that list. I don't know why, because it's suppose to be one of the harder tests to pass. I'm still going to try and see if they will accept my credential and testing...

Fingers crossed and good thoughts please!

Well this is the week for our California State Testing. So far my kids are doing well as far as I know. They are remaining focused during testing and I believe they are trying their best! They are staying quiet and respectful! This is the first year for my second graders taking the state test. So this is a big deal for them.

After the test each day, we've been working on some fun craft projects. We've made mother's day frames/recipe holders. We also celebrated Cinco De Mayo. We made tortilla chips and they had a choice of salsa to dunk or cinnamon/sugar mix to make them sweet. They just had a BLAST! Tomorrow we wrap our mother's day gifts and time review.
