I feel like it's been a while since I've blogged! Things have been a little crazy around here with the garage sale (finally ended today), the holiday, and the sad news...
A boy who I went to high school with, who was also a neighbor, and I knew through cheerleading/football, has tragically passed away. About 2 weeks ago in the afternoon he and a co-worker were going on a business call when they were hit by an extremely drunk driver. The co-woker was thrown from the car and passed away on scene (only 23 years old), and my friend was sent to the hospital in critical condition. After several surgeries on his brain they were hopeful, however the next day, the doctors informed the family there was no brain activity and they needed to decide when to remove him from life support. On July 2nd, he was taken off life support and fought for 10 hours, then tragically lost the fight. He was only 25 years old, a football star from my high school and Central Michigan University, an avid member of his fraternity Lamda Chi Alpha, and loved by many friends and family. If you'd like to read more about the story, I have a link at the end of this post. The drunk driver walked away with minor scratches, but thankfully will now be in prison for the rest of his life for taking two innocent boys lives away too soon. Please keep the family in your prayers.
Sorry for the somber post, but I did re-create a pocket chart activity that Doodle Bug's Teaching talked about on her blog. You may have it for FREE :) I am going to cut up the shapes and names and laminate for a pocket chart center. Click here to DOWNLOAD.
I also found this uber cute dress at.... none other than Target! Which has nothing to do with teaching, but it's too cute to not share! Hard to see but the top has a ruffle across it!
Enjoy your day, I hope it's as beautiful as mine is!!
