Wait, what do you mean Spring Break is over?, Careers and a Freebie!

Last week we were on Spring Break and so my hubby decided we should go on a road trip. We LOVE road trips together, but it's hard when you only have a certain amount of time. So our break was spent mostly driving, but we still had fun!

I don't know about you, but I've eaten way too much Easter candy! Most of my faves are gluten free and oh so yummy!

My kiddos had the day off yesterday but I went to work to finish report cards. I really like the idea of trimesters and doing 3 report cards instead of quarters with 4. It seems like it would make more sense.

I had a rough weekend, found out some bad news so I was totally sad, but I know that things have to get better, so I remain positive. (Or at least I really try to... what other choice do I have? Life goes on...)

I finally saw The Hunger Games! I haven't read the books in years, so I honestly don't know exactly what was left out. I do know that I didn't love who they cast for Peeta, but Gale was a cutie! I thought they could've developed the characters more, but I realize that it is a movie and according to my hubby, it was long enough!

At our school, we decided to have Career Day every other year. So that means that it is this year. I made a little craft and writing activity and it is on TPT.

I also created a community helper booklet freebie. Get it here:

I hope you are having a good week, my friends!

  2. I totally agree about the casting-- Peeta's movie character DOES NOT do his book character justice!! I'm halfway through book 2 and pretending Peeta is someone else haha!
