Monday Made It and Other Stuff

I feel like I haven't blogged in forever! Last Tuesday I embarked on the verrrrry long road trip from Georgia to Ohio to see my family! I'm still in Ohio and it's been a crazy week thus far.

Major trip far

-I spent all of Wednesday with my stepdad, his girlfriend and my brother and sister at Cedar Point. If you don't know Cedar Point it is only the best amusement park in seriously it ranks every year and international parks try their best to compete! I had a great time...and got a little tan! The Millennium Force was awesome!! Here are some fun pics of the park and my lovely family....

-On a very sad note during this trip I also learned that a classmate of mine passed away the same day I drove up to Ohio. Needless to say I was totally shocked, we're so young and our class was extremely close so it hit hard. She was a beautiful girl and will truly be missed. Attending her memorial on Saturday was hard but I had to show my condolences. Just a careful while driving and always tell the ones you love how much you care.

-My baby girl is having too much fun running around my Grandmas' yard. Now I've gotta get a place with a yard....I feel like I'm depriving her. If you follow me on Instagram you've seen this pic of her running around with joy!

On to Monday Made It! Being that I am not at home I couldn't get really crafty so I made a little freebie. It's one of my faaaavorite back to school activities. Squiggle line writing. The students take a squiggly line and turn it into any creative picture they can think of....animals, houses ANYTHING! Then they write a short story about their picture. It is a great way to assess their writing for the beginning of the year. Click on the picture to check it out! And link up with 4th Grade Frolics Enjoy and happy Monday!

Who else has just 17 days left of summer like I do? Ahhhhh!!!!!!


  1. OMG I want to ride that roller coaster!! I've never been to Cedar Point but have certainly heard of it and, living in Upstate NY, it could easily be a weekend trip... Hope you're enjoying your very long trip!
