Thank goodness for our community pool and good friends. We spent 3-4 hours playing in the pool with friends on Tuesday. Here's our amazing pool!
Mail! What? Mail? Going and getting mail is quite the ordeal here. We have to go to the Embassy and it's a 30-45 minute drive each way. Then there's the challenge of parking our big Ford Expedition in downtown Nassau. Luckily we found a street spot. My hubby had yesterday off so we dropped Suri off at a birthday party and headed to go get mail. I was super excited though because the 3 swim suits I ordered from Old Navy arrived. For some crazy reason I only brought 2 suits with me when I moved to the Bahamas. I am in desperate need of some more since we swim almost every day. Some birthday presents from family arrived for Suri too. I will never take getting mail delivered to our house in the US for granted again!
I am so thankful for all my friends and family that are supporting me in my new adventure into blogging. I received 46 likes my first week on Facebook and posted my first Facebook fan freebie. Do you teach the "Peacemaker/Peace breaker" lesson? If you don't know what I'm talking about it's a lesson using the book David Goes to School by David Shannon. There are adorable anchor charts on Pinterest. Just search peacemaker and peace breaker. My second graders absolutely loved the lesson and it gave us something to refer to in the first weeks of school as we formulated our classroom rules and learned to make good decisions. My Facebook freebie is a flap book where students sort the behaviors listed as either peacemaker or peace breaker. I left a whole column blank so teachers can fill in those behaviors that their own classes come up with. I hope you find it to be a helpful resource!
Happy Friday everyone and enjoy the weekend!
