Manic Monday.

Okay, so it's not really manic at all.  There is nothing crazy happenin' up in here. 

It's raining, Becks is at school, I'm drinking coffee, and Faith is sleeping on the couch. 

Because, let me tell you, this girl can snooze.  She does all the snoozing all the time.  A+ in snoozing.  And being cute.  She's nailed that, too.  

So, Spring Break 2014 is over.  There are six weeks of school left.  

Oh. My. Word.  

Easter is upon us and there are eggs to be dyed and baskets to fill full of that annoying grass that gets everywhere.  

Looking for a fun pre-Easter read?

Becks and I are obsessed with The Easter Bunny's Assistant by Jan Thomas.  Hilarious. 

If you haven't discovered this book yet, it's a hilarious read about The Easter Bunny and his assistant, Skunk, who gets really excited about dying eggs and then...well...does what skunks apparently do when they get excited.  A skart, maybe?  With a little boy (and a classroom full of kiddos), who are completely intrigued by bodily functions, this book is guaranteed to get the giggles going!  

Back when I was still in the classroom, I made this little mini-unit to go along with it.   What is crazy to me now, is that my very own kiddo can read it to me!  Love!

Aw, look how little he was back in 2012!

Anyway, enjoy your Monday - manic or not!
