Sorry I've been MIA the past week but it was our spring break and hubby and I took a much needed vacation.

That's our cruise ship in the background. Yep! We went on a very relaxing little cruise! I've never been on a cruise before and let me just say- it is now my favorite way to vacation! I can't wait to go on another one. I feel so rested and recharged- ready to finish the school year.

When I got home I had some sweet little packages waiting for me from Amazon. I'm teaching life cycles next in science and this year we are going to watch ladybugs change as well as our caterpillars. So I ordered this cute little ladybug land.
It comes with a free certificate for 15-20 ladybug larva. The kiddos should have fun watching ladybugs and caterpillar. I plan to do some compare and contrast activities that I'll share later.

I also had this waiting for me.
These are the cutest books written by a grandmother and illustrated by her granddaughter who happens to be in first grade. They are great for beginning readers. I bought the packet with sets 1 & 2 together. It was a little cheaper that way. You can check out both of these by clicking on the picture. It will take you to

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break and has recharged and ready for the last few weeks of the year. I know I'm feeling much better but a little panicked because I still have a lot to teach.

Have a great week!

Sheree: I just found your blog today, and I love cruises! It's so wonderful to have all your needs taken care of. Sometimes my husband and I have option paralysis when we visit different places, but on the cruise ship we didn't have that feeling.

I thought you might be interested in taking a look at a post that I did about life cycles, since that what you're doing this week:

Life Cycles and More

Also, I have some spring freebies in my latest post.

Have a great week!
