I'm linking up with Amy Lemons for Tell Me More Linky Party!
My blogging adventures began in 2009 with my 1st grade class. We are a military city and many parents were on a tour of duty. I couldn't think of a better way to keep our class connected with those serving over seas. At the end of the school year, I send home a survey asking parents for their impressions of the school year. Since I was looping with this group of kids, I wanted parents to let me know the best communication tool. I was overwhelmed by the response of the blog.
By the start of 2010 school year, I added pages to the top of my blog with resources for my parents to access. You could hear the sound of a slap on my forehead when I realized most of my comments were coming from Teachers. By February 2011, I called upon my friend Kristen at Ladybug Teacher Files to assist with a new design. Mrs. Saoud's Class became Primary Graffiti.
I was a child of the 70's and 80's. I played with pogo balls, cuddled with my cabbage patch kid and pound puppy, and played outdoors til the sun began to set, looking for blackberries to pick!
My family is amazing. We are cousins that grew up like siblings.
My childhood treasure! You can see some of the real gems of the 80s. My Little Pony was a girls best friend. The doll with lemon scented hair. Yes, those were the 80's. I was a BIG fan of Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, NKOTB, and Madonna.
Graduated High School in 1997. I'm terrified that I'm gonna trip on my face in front of the entire arena. I'm looking for the exit already!
Graduate College in 2001. Still looking for the exit.
Met my husband training!
We stay active together. We look like we're out for a country stroll. We decided to take a trip a few states north and go mountain biking. This photo was taken after several terrible tumbles off the side of the mountain.
I married my best friend on Easter Sunday 2010. Our ceremony took place on Little Palm Island off the Florida Keys. We decided on a sunset exchange. Our four legged visitors were such a lovely surprise!
