It's the end of summer, and that means it's back to school time! I'm almost finished with the decorations in my classroom, and will post pictures soon. For now, you get to look at the less-entertaining stuff; My "Welcome to Kindergarten Letter":
RED=2nd and Final Warning
Tickets: Raffle tickets will be given to students making good choices, such as listening to directions, helping others, following the rules, etc. The students will keep the tickets in their classroom box. If a student earns 10 tickets, he/she will choose a treasure out of our treasure box at the end of the school day.
Parents-What You can do to Help: Discuss your child's behavior often with them. Ask them to explain why they earned the color they did that day, and brainstorm with them ways they can either improve their behavior, or continue in the good classroom choices they are already making. Above all, encourage them to continue being the wonderful, capable student they are!

I once heard someone say that the top three reasons they became a
teacher were: June, July, and August. Pretty witty, yes...but in all
seriousness, I am SO grateful for the time I had to spend with our
families this summer. Those times always make me the happiest and
provide the most cherished memories.
Later that week in Utah we went to this beautiful family's sealing! Chris and Ashley are our friends from El Paso, and we had the privilege of teaching them the temple preparation lessons before their sealing day in their hometown temple back in Logan, Utah.
I love these girls!
Later in the month, Jeff and I visited our favorite place in Utah:
It brought back such good memories :)
At the end of June, we flew with Jeff's family to California!
On the second day, while everyone else went to a water park, we headed to the Happiest Place on Earth (AKA: my second home)
...and had a great time at the beach...
and the Discovery Children's Museum,
and the Spring Mountain Ranch Outdoor picnic and play,
