I wanna soak up the sun...

We colored Easter eggs today, using one of my favorite seasonal tools, our egg spinner. Have you all seen these? They are awesome. You can get them for $6 at Meijer or Target or the like, and it's mess-free egg coloring, perfect for kids with limited motor control (or just for very young kids, too). It really colors them nicely, too, kind of a marbled look/texture. The kids love it!


And now...I am officially on spring break!!!!!! Please excuse all the exclamation points; I'm just very excited. In less than 24 hours, I will be here:
...soaking up the sun, perhaps with a fancypants fermented-type drink in hand, reading one of the many library books I put on my Nook last night...and not thinking at all about our brand-new IEP system that's already broken and losing us data, one of my little friends who gave me a near-black eye today, the unit I should be working on, the scary legislation in Lansing...not at all! Just thinking about the sun and my fancypants drink and my book.

Aaahhhhhhhhhh........

  2. I wish I had seen the egg spinner earlier! The kids were asking to color eggs. But the classroom teacher thought it would be too hard for them to take the eggs home with them. I ended up buying Styrofoam eggs and poster paint for them. (I'm kinda jealous of you... your spring break is just starting, and mine is coming to an end! It went so fast!)

    1. I think the egg spinner would work with Styrofoam eggs, too...But for taking the hard boiled eggs home, we wrap them really well in newspaper before putting them in the buckets with Easter grass...then pin a note on the outside of their backpacks saying that there's eggs inside, so they don't get left in bags all of spring break ;)

  8. Thank you, I have just been searching for information approximately

  9. I think what you typed made a great deal of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you were to create a awesome title? I am not saying your
    information is not good., but what if you added something that makes people want
    more? I mean "I wanna soak up the sun..." is kinda boring. You could glance
    at Yahoo's home page and see how they write news titles to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about what you've got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
