There are many paths to reach a single destination.......
and you can still get there even if you take the long way around.
"We can make our plans,
but the Lord determines our steps." Proverbs 16:9 NLT
Every year I make and publish a Grade 1 book with my students based on an author and their work. This year our book is based on Tedd Arnold's Fly Guy series. I found a step-by-step how to draw "Fly Guy" tutorial (here) and we used it to draw Fly Guy. We are now in the final stages to get ready for our book and so I asked them to restart if they made a mistake instead of erasing to keep the picture looking nice for our book....and most of the turned out like this:
But... as I looked around at the half finished drawings that littered the floor and the tables in my classroom I suddenly realized that having these end up in the open recycling bin might raise some eye brows:
*gasp!* Thankfully I think I was the only one that noticed but my teacher peeps had a good laugh with me!
I had planned on staying late at school after today's staff meeting to finish my report card edits and typos and get my envelopes ready for tomorrow's report card day. It turned out to be a little later than expected when Kezia texted and asked if I would help her create a resume. Someone from the restaurant where Kiandra is working is giving her 2 week notice and Kezia would love to take her spot.
It worked perfectly and even came with a matching cover letter template which I was also able to use. I had so much fun creating Kiandra's and I'm glad Kezia let me take a shot at hers too. We will see if this resume will land Kezia a job??
After our "date night" at the gas station (we now have about an hour together between when I drop Kaden off at hockey/Conrad gets off work and when Kezia has to be picked up after volunteering at our church's Kids Club/Kaden's practice ends) this was the view after Conrad and I filled up our vehicles:
and this was the view of the back yard after Conrad picked up Kiandra from her night class:
(The only thing that I can find good about this is that Kezia's three soccer friends have been hosting students from Spain for the last 3 months and they have been wanting to experience snow and they leave tomorrow. At least they will have a little bit of a peek at what snow looks like before they leave.)
