TOMS, Leap Day and Freebies!

I'm really proud of myself for posting once a week. :) Last week at work was so busy that I barely had time for anything and since my husband had to work late, we needed a date night this weekend. Yesterday, he took me to dinner (Longhorn has SO many gluten-free choices and he actually went looking online for restaurants and printed a menu!), a movie (Big Miracle, was hoping for more, it was just okay), and because I wasn't feeling well, he showed me the receipt for the present he said should be on our doorstep any day. TOMS! He was sitting next to me when I was looking at Rachelle's post about things that she loves right now. I saw the shoes and told him that I wanted a pair of those TOMS. He listened! :) Love him! Oh, and one more thing. At the restaurant, he asked the waitress to not bring any bread. He said if I can't have any, he isn't either! He gets the wonderful husband of the week award! <3

I created a little unit for Leap Day. I'm always looking for ways to make learning fun for my little ones and since we have this extra day in February, why not celebrate? Check it out here:

Here is a little Leap Day song I made:

My kiddos were having the hardest time remembering to use capitals and punctuation when writing so I went to the dollar store and found the cutest glasses (in the party section). Since I have the "Use Your Writer's Glasses" bulletin board in my room, I thought they needed their own! We've been using them to practice this week and it is adorable. I wish I had a picture to show you the glasses. I'll try to take one soon. A few even came up to me and said that they needed their writer's glasses and they put them on and fixed their errors. Magic! :)
Here is one of the pages we used with the glasses:

I guess I better go get everything done so that I'm ready to go to the Super Bowl party. Who's brilliant idea was it to do this on a Sunday? Don't they realize that Saturday would be so much better and Super Bowl Saturday still has a nice ring to it. I'm rooting for the Patriots because Tom Brady was the QB on my fantasy team and for the most part, he helped me! (Did I ever write about why I picked him? I actually know a lot about football, but some of the people on the Fantasy league don't know that and so they tease that I will probably pick the cute guys. When we chose players, I kept joking that I was looking for the cutest QB and TB fit the criteria. I really picked him because I've loved him ever since he played for MI, but he is super cute! Ha!) So who are you rooting for? I'll give away my Leap Day unit to the first 2 people who respond with their e-mail and their pick!

Enjoy your day and GO Patriots! :)
