A little of this and a little of that

I've thought about having a schedule to my blog like some of my friends do. But I can never seem to think of what the schedule should be. I'm a little more hodge podge than a schedule allows. I tried to do Make it Monday but I haven't been crafty lately. I think I'll get back on that as it gets closer to summer time. Wedding stuff is starting to take over. I'm getting married in 47 days. Chris and I are trying to get things cleaned out and organized so we can merge our lives. This past weekend I cleaned out the linen closet and then we both worked on my storage closet. He's got it all organized like it's his garage. Then Sunday he brought all his camping gear over. So half my living room is full of camping stuff. Then we had a shower that day so the other half is full of shower stuff. It is really exciting and I can't wait to be Mrs. B. But I'm not sure I have enough hours in the day to get things done. Especially with this sinus infection I seem to be getting. My voice is all raspy and scratchy. (Which one of my students told me he liked yesterday) I need to clean out things from my kitchen to make room for the new stuff. I've lived on my own for the past 9 years so I have a ton of stuff. Plus I need to start on my thank you cards. We have another shower on Sunday at our church. It's all very exciting but a little overwhelming. School and blogging seem to be taking a back burner. I have over 400 blog posts to read on my google reader. My head is about to explode with ideas for posts and activities. Kindergarten graduation is in need of planning. My kids still have lots to learn. I'm just feeling the pressure. So I thought I'd share a couple of engagement pictures and then something school related.

These were taken by our wonderful art teacher at school. Her blog can be found at here Moments Captured Beautifully by Mandy.   
She's wonderful.
I'm sharing a little poem that I wrote with the help of Chris about Tree Frogs in case your interested. It is really not good at all. But I needed something for the kids to practice reading and I wanted it to be about the rain forest. It's our reading homework for the week. If you can use it, leave a little love please.
