With Much Appreciation

Hey to all! Today was our first day back to school after the storm. None of my students were affected by the deadly tornadoes…but we are reaching out to our fellow school system friends.

Talked to my aunt today(she lost her home) and she’s in good spirits.

I have to tell you  every time I see pictures or watch the news…I am constantly praising God and giving thanks. God is awesome and to see his spirit move over our state and watch people…perfect strangers reaching out to help their neighbor…it’s just incredible!


I also want to take a minute to say thanks for all the prayers and kind comments. And what better way to say how much I appreciate my blog friends than to throw a sale and give away free stuff to boot.

Starting tomorrow through Wednesday everything in my store is 20% off. You can also use this code TAD11 on Tuesday to get an extra 20% off. How neat is that?

b2Also, each day this week I’m giving away free stuff.


Here is the first FREEBIE!  Click on the picture to download. All you need is a die and game markers. Students roll the dice then they have to read that many OO Words before they can move the rolled number of spaces around the game board.
