Exciting blog news & some cute little distractions!

Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited to announce that I'll have a new, souped-up blog, soon!  Leah at Cutsie Blog Designs is creating a new blog design for me that will be awesome! I will be able to separate and organize posts about school, foodie-stuff, photography, and crafts. I'm thrilled! Hopefully by the end of the month it will be in place! I can't wait to see it!

Also: I have registered my domain name! You can now find this blog at firstgradefollies.com instead of the previous URL, which was alisha-colon.blogspot.com.  Exciting stuff! :)

I spent four days last week taking care of my 2 1/2 year old nephew, Ian and 2 days watching my friend's son, Jackson, who is about 6 months old. Oh my goodness, we had so much fun! Unfortunately, as any of you with small kiddos know, it's pretty hard to get crafty (or post blogs) when they're here!

I'm glad I was able to take some photos while they were here! They both go to the same sitter, who was on vacation, so they're already buddies!

Ian and Jackson. So much fun!






Ian was such a great helper!





Trying on "Cici's" shoes (that's me)

Jackson was such a sweet, easy baby to care for!
Ian accompanied me on a couple of shopping excursions this week, one of which was Hobby Lobby and the Dollar Store. I'm hoping to get crafty next week! I have a BUNCH of things to make for my classroom! 

Teacher friends: if you haven't checked out Classroom DIY yet, please do! It's filled with projects to make for our rooms! I'm going to work on pretty-ing up some boring clipboards, making my own "phonics phones" and getting started on my polka-dotted themed decor. Oh, I'm also going to attempt to make my own dry-erase board to hang in my room. I'm in the "1989" addition of our school that doesn't have whiteboards. No worries, I can make one myself! 

Okay everyone! I'm headed to Columbus with the hubs to look for hiking boots! We're going hiking in Pennsylvania next weekend for Father's Day with his family. 

Have a great weekend! What are you doing?
