Let's Get Acquainted Linky!

The yearbook is finished, minus the two pictures I still have to take!!  I will turn it in on Friday ~ three days before my deadline!  I am usually a procrastinator, but I just wanted it D-O-N-E ~ DONE!!

So, back to my blog I go!  I am linking up with Mrs. Reed at Flying Into First Grade for her first linky party!

This week we are using our initials to tell about ourselves.  Here goes:

A ~ Active  I love being active!  I get up every most weekday mornings to work out.  {This week has been an exception because of the time change.}  But more than anything I love when my students are actively learning!  I love when they can do things that get their brains moving in new and different ways!

R ~ Reading Yes, I am a Reading Specialist, but I truly LOVE to read!  When I use the treadmill, I love to read books because it keeps me going!  There are days when I am running late because I am reading a good book.  Right now I am into the Kinsey Millhone series by Sue Grafton.  Fun mysteries!
I also enjoy reading with my own children!  Board books are always fun with Ginny Beth, and we love Easter Bugs right now!
Even though Zack can read on his own, I still read to him each night.  Right now we are working on the Harry Potter series.  His friends told him about it, and he found my copy.  So, off to the magical world we go each night!  I love spending that time with him! 
C ~ Clip Art  I am addicted to fun clip art!  When I see something I like and have an idea for, I go with it!  I purchase or download it and then use it!  I have a lot of clip art I really need to use, and I will someday!  Maybe this summer I can work on some fun stuff!  Some of my faves are:
Graphics From the Pond 
So, head on over to Flying Into First Grade and link up!

Also, stop by Angela's blog Hippo Hooray for Second Grade for her BIG 200 follower giveaway!
And I am helping Nikki at Sent from My iPad (another Virginia blogger) by donating one item from my TPT store for her 100 follower giveaway!  Head on over to join in the fun! 

Until next time!
