Wordless Wednesday: Photo Challenge

I thought this photo challenge by The Paper Mama sounded like fun, so I thought I would enter!  Here is a picture of C when he was about 17  months.  The theme of the week is eyes.

The Bookshelf

I was looking around for some new books to get the boys, I'm just tired of the usual, and nothing I have looks interesting.  I was thinking about different types of books I could start reading with C now that he's oder and really starting to get into books and asking questions.  The idea of chapter books came to mind.  I think he's still a little young, but wanted to see what others thought, so of course, I googled!

I came across this site DaddyRead.  It has some great information about reading to children, starting with the itty-bitties, and continuing to lower elementary kids.  I found some great book ideas, and am excited to hit the bookstore to get some!  I also got some great gift ideas new babies!

Fun at the Park

The other weekend Hubby and I had a fun day all planned out...and then we woke up to the threat of rain.  So, we decided to make it a more local fun day out.  We went out to lunch at Red Robin and headed for our favorite playground.  We didn't realize it until we were there, but with how busy we've been this summer, this was N's first trip to this park!  Needless to say, both boys had a blast!

Surprise gift!

The first part of my training has been over for 1 week!  To celebrate my training being over, and my official move from the office to the classroom...Hubby got me a gift!  It was a surprise gift, with more surprises than he intended!  

Being in the office, I was able to read a few blogs, and tweet a little during the down times.  However, in the classroom, especially with the under 3 down time!  And even if there was, not appropriate to be on the phone tweeting while in the classroom.  So...Hubby got me this to help with my tweeting addiction!

Hahaha!  I love it!  There was a little issue with the delivery, but it got here!  (It was showing delivered, but it wasn't.  Hubby called and found out that this was an issue with a couple other deliveries in the area...not sure what happened, but we do know that the manager was in the area trying to fix the issues!)  My first paper tweet you ask?
