I am quite pleased with my new gloves from Target. There is nothing worse than being unable to feel your hands in the cold, but these are so warm!

One of those thrift store finds that is a staple all year long! LOVE!

It's so nice to be warmed on the inside on a cold, windy day!

Fall Craft Fair

This weekend, I participated in the Fall Craft Fair hosted by Unique Boutiques and Marketplace! 



It was FREEZING in the morning, but turned out to be a beautiful day! My favorite part was putting together a set up for my table. 




Once everything was set up, I sat there and drew more cards...


gave out lots of business cards....


and even sold some artwork!


I had a chance to browse around at all the booths and sneak some Christmas shopping in too. ;)

Thanks to my wonderful mom for helping and hanging out with me. I thoroughly enjoyed the day!

A Few of My Favorite Things: School

Student teaching has been great! The 1st grade class makes each day fun, exciting and unpredictable! I just love seeing all my students everyday, and I am learning tons!  Student teaching is helping me grow as a teacher in many ways that sitting a college classroom could never do. I just finished my second week of teaching every subject on my own. I am loving it :)

A few things that make me smile....

1. My first gift from a student.


This cookie was adorable AND didn't contain any of my forbidden allergens! 
Delicious :)

2. Being Ms. Parsons


Another sweet gift from a student :) I am thrilled to hear my students call me Ms. Parsons. It makes it all the more real that I made it through all my college classes to this point--I am actually teaching these children!

Last week, few of my students found the idea that I have a first name most interesting and hard to wrap their minds around :)

3. Turtles.


For an art activity, the students made their favorite animals from play-dough. I sculpted a turtle and suddenly there were 16 more turtles to join him!


This sight made me smile. One day after everyone turned in their finished artwork. :)

4. These little ones.


By far the best thing about student teaching has been to watch each child grow and learn. I love each of their personalities and the way their little minds think! They teach me so much :)
