Stanford Achievement Tests

This week at GCA we are administering the SAT's for elementary and highschool grades alike. I have to admit that this is one of the best times of the year (besides teacher appreciation week :o)

By fourth grade, the kids pretty much know the routine. I read the directions, do one sample problem with them, and then they are on their own for that section (anywhere from 20-50 minutes long).

So what have I been doing you might ask? Well, let's just say, it's only Tuesday and I have all of my grading done, and my lesson plans written out until may 31st. Now I am surfing the net and the blogs like crazy.... SOMEONE POST SOMETHING NEW :o) I am getting bored!
I guess I should bring a book in to read, like Adrianne. That would be more productive!

Nevertheless, I am thankful for the break from the every day teaching routine.

A Few Pics

Here is a picture that my dad took of our family together at my house this past weekend :O)

Here is an old picture of my family when I was a little girl! Can you tell which one is me?

Home Sweet Home!

Well, GCA is on Spring break, so Tim and I left Saturday Morning to head to Philadelphia to see his brother and sister in law and their two children. We stayed Saturday and Sunday and had a great time catching up. From there we went to Bellefonte, PA where Tim's family lives. All of this week he is preaching at C.C.C.A the school we graduated from, where both of his parents work. He has been doing a series on the gospel, preaching 2x a day! (Talk about a real evangelist :o) He has also been painting his sister suzanne's new home at night.

I have been making soliciting calls for the school's annual auction. I am also subbing in the classroom a little too. I have to say it has been wonderful being back in good old PA. I can't believe I am saying this, but it almost makes me want to move here.... but nonetheless, we are TRINITY BOUND :O) Perhaps someday we will settle here, if the Lord sees fit. Either way, it's always fun to come HOME!

I also had lunch with my folks the other day and had a wonderful time fellowshiping with them. On Friday, my sisters Jen and Rach are coming into town to see us. I very much looking forward to that time with them.
I will try to post some pics soon of us with our family enjoying our home State of Pennsylvania!

"Mommy Chic" Baby Shower

I am in charge of baby shower invitations and decorations for a good friend of mine, Katie, at G.C.A. I was so excited when I found this new line of baby shower decorations called, "Mommy Chic". If you happen to know her, she is so fashionable and just the cutest pregnant lady you have ever seen!

These are the napkins :o) These are obviously the invites from the company, but they were pretty pricey (since I had to send out 100!) so I found some really fun paper (Bright Green and pink) at Kinkos (thanks Bob!) and then printed the wording on at the G.C.A printer. After printing, I put cute little flower embeleshments on each invite (thank you Michaels!) It was so fun to do :o)

These are the dinner plates, and I absolutely love them! The picture is perfect for her-- she loves to shop :o)

If you are interested in checking this out, click here for the website. I had to do all of my ordering online. No one around her carries it! They do, however, carry "Mod Mom" , which is very cute as well.
