I am Iowa Hawkeye and proud of it! :0) I began teaching in first grade, was moved to fifth grade (the day before school...what a year!), then moved back to be with my firsties! I'm a married, mother of one to a very curious and adventurous little boy and three fur babies! :0)
Hello Blogging Buddies! I am sorry I've been missing in action, but I'm trying to savor the last few days of summer! Can't believe the "s" word (school...UGH!) is going to be starting soon, and shocked that some of you have already started back! So here's what I've been up to, and my final summer plans... 1. Pinterest... Also known as "crack"!!! Seriously sooooooo addicting! I've found so many amazing ideas and can't wait to show you all! 2. Splash park and lots of snuggles with my best buddy, Brody. Our local aquatic center has a splash area that my 18 month old LOVES! Best part...it's free in the morning! And he takes awesome naps after! 3. Visiting family in Missouri...seriously folks the actual temp without heat index was 107 the other day! Love my family, but holy cow this state is HOT! 4. The IOWA STATE FAIR!!!! Ok I'm sure some of your all's states have great fairs...but nothing compares to the ISF! I mean come on, we've got a life size cow made from butter and not joking, you can get adult beverages on a stick! Not to mention the amazing food! (milkshakes from the dairy barn, hot beef sundays (mash potatoes, layered with pulled beef, gravy, cheese and a cherry tomato to top it off), fried pickles, and Ginny grinders... are my FAV!) We also have amazing free entertainment like, The Band Perry! I'm also hitting the grandstand to see Casting Crowns and Jason Aldean :0)
So now that I've convinced you all how awesome the state of Iowa is, I'd better get back to my to-do list (visiting family)! What are your all's final summer plans?
