Happy Friday, Peeps!

Well, I can't believe it has taken me this long to get Kinder Peeps' Facebook page up and going (well, actually...yes I can, haha!  Having a 9 month old baby might be the reason)! Please like Kinder Peeps on Facebook and help me spread the word!  

Click the image below to like our Facebook page! Dreamlike Magic is going to create some Facebook goodies for my blog! So, until then...please click below! :)

We are off to greet the newest addition to our brother and Clare's baby boy, Theodore Douglas Ivey! Pictures to follow!

Have a wonderful weekend! Cheers!

FREEBIE ALERT! Last Day of School Signs!

 Hi, Peeps!

As a "thank you" for reaching my goal of 850+ followers on Pinterest (Pinterest drives most of the traffic I get on my TpT store), I made these Last Day of School Signs! I hope you have some fun with them!  

There are 18 pages included...I added grade levels Pre-K through 5th grade with both May and June 2014 dates. This would definitely be a fun photo op! Click on the images below and they will take you directly to the download. And last but not least, please leave me feedback after you download them! Thank you, thank you!

Night, night! This mama needs some ZZZzzzzZZZ!

BEST Behavior Bundles: Clip Chart, Weekly Behavior Sheet, and Parent Letter

Happy Memorial Day, Peeps!

It has been raining all day here in Austin but we still managed to get some pool time in with Jet when it [briefly] stopped today!  We had a great weekend and Jet got to see his Bebe!

On Saturday night we went and saw Godzilla in 3D with Jarred's mom!  We had to get a quick 3D selfie in, haha!

I am so excited about presenting at TCEA's upcoming Tots and Technology Conference in Galveston and hope to have all of my products uploaded by then (FINALLY)! So...those who know me (especially my student teachers) will tell you I have a passion for classroom management and positive reinforcement! I believe it should be our goal as educators to focus on creating a classroom climate that fosters mutual respect and most importantly, draws attention to/promotes positive behaviors. There are many strategies and systems teachers use; I encourage my student teachers to "try them on" and see what works best for their group each year. 

Not using a clip chart system...using Class Dojo this year? You can click the image below to purchase my Editable Parent Letters Introducing Class Dojo...and, be on the look out for MORE DOJO!

Have a wonderful week!  And cheers to SUMMER!

If You Like Monograms and Fabulous FREEBIES...

Hi, Peeps!

These discoveries just made my "Marvelous Monday" even MORE marvelous!

I wanted to first share this free and customizable planner cover from  If you like monograms, you need to be sure and take a look at their website!  They have many, many templates to choose from...and they are FREE!

Once you decide on a design you like and click their link to share on social media, the download is enabled and you can then personalize the design with your own monogram using Adobe (it automatically prompts you once you download the design you choose). Pictured below is the design I downloaded from their website and then personalized in Adobe (click on the image and it will take you directly to the download).  I plan to use it as my planner cover this year.

As I was perusing free printable planner pages on Pinterest, I also came across a FREE, super fun, undated calendar printable created by Lorrie over at The Mac and Cheese Chronicles and wanted to share with my Kinder Peeps! As a teacher, I feel like I go through about a million calendars a month, haha!

Here's a Texas-sized hug and "thank you" to talented, generous bloggers like Lorrie!  You can click the screen capture below and it will take you directly to her blog and this SUPER awesome download (and more):

Jet had an orange breakfast (his beloved sweet potatoes) Friday morning in honor of my student teachers who also graduated from The University of Texas this weekend; Mommy and Jet are so excited for them!

We spent Saturday at Mimi and Papa's in Marble Falls and enjoyed some time in the pool!  Jet has become quite the fish ;-)  On Sunday, we went to the reopening of the famous Toy Joy in downtown Austin...such a cool store!  He added to his maraca collection, haha!  The picture below makes me laugh because his new maraca is as big as his head!

And today, Jet hosted his first play date at our house! We had so much fun with all of the sweet Moms and babies! Can't wait to do it again!

I hope you have a great week and enjoy these fabulous freebies!  I am just so appreciative and wanted to make sure and pass them along!

Good night, Peeps!

Happy Mother's Day!

Good evening, Peeps!

I celebrated my first Mother's Day today!  Jet made me a Mommy on September 3, 2013 at 7:33 pm and I absolutely cannot imagine my life without him.    I thank God for my healthy, sweet boy everyday!  

His smiles and giggles give me the most incredible feeling.  I am so blessed.  He is always smiling.  I took this on our way home from church this morning:

We took Jet to Schlitterbahn yesterday with my brother and his family (they have another baby on the way...due in two weeks!) and we had so much fun.  This was actually Jet's second Schlitterbahn experience (the first was in my belly last summer, haha)!

My first Mother's Day weekend was one I will never forget! Jet and his Daddy (and our little Schnoodle, Libby) spoiled me!  I love my sweet family so much!

I hope you all had a great weekend and a happy Mother's Day!
