#1 I think what many of us have on our minds, the huge tornado in Oklahoma.
The Teacher's Treasure Chest has a ton of donated goods from lots of great TpT teacher-authors.
$250 worth of goodies for only $25 - and all proceeds go to Oklahoma victims.

#2 The other huge thing on my mind was my school's science fair last night. It was the 1st one we've ever done and it was a huge hit! I was very proud of our little plant booth and lots of teachers came to check it out because they heard from other teachers it was pretty cool. A 5th grade teacher said that primary was putting intermediate to shame. Now that's what I call a good compliment!
Our little booth set up in the hallway, with my flower labeling craftivity:
KWL Chart My Plant Observation Logs
Our Big Experiment
#3 I recently splurged and bought a Polar watch based on some great recommendations. It's a watch with a heart rate monitor that you wear underneath your clothes. It tells you your heart rate and calories burned. I've always wondered how many calories I was burning, so I tested it out on Monday when I do 30 mins. of core training and 60 mins. of Zumba, and holy cow - was I shocked!
#4 I've been on a real craft kick lately for some reason and have made TONS of new cards the past two weeks. They turned out so darn cute I even entered one in an online contest this week!
#5 Mr. Squirrel visits us often (much to my yorkies' chagrin) and I decided that I wanted to get him a little treat. So I went to Home Depot and found this squirrel log you screw into your fence. I was waiting and waiting, hoping to catch him in the act, and voila - I caught him! Too cute!
