Summer Vacation & Some School Shopping

This week, my sweet hubby and I went on vacation to the lake. We stayed in a wonderful little cabin right on the lake and had such a nice relaxing time. We spent lots of time on the water fishing and just riding in the boat as well as swimming in the lake.

The sunset view! We could walk right out to the edge of the lake.
Inside our lake cabin - I LOVED the beautiful oak walls!
We had no internet service at our vacation spot, so I have not been able to post or read my fellow blogger's posts. I guess I will be spending the weekend catching up!

While we were on vacation, we made a stop by the local Walmart to pick up some necessary items to take with us to the cabin and I found some things I needed for my classroom.  I found the poly folders for $0.50 each which is a better buy than the usual $0.88 they usually are. I was able to grab 28 blue folders that I will be using for my kinders' homework folders. I will post pictures when I make the labels to go inside as well.

I also ran in the local Dollar Tree and found these wonderful baskets. They are a little larger than letter size paper and will be perfect for paper baskets. I can find so many uses for these and they were only $1! I bought all 4 they had and I will be looking for more of them when I go to another Dollar Tree. The worker there told me they came in yellow, red, blue, and green; I got the green and blue.

I also found an adorable star pointer at Michaels a few weeks ago for $1. It is laying in the basket right now.

Sorry for this incredibly long post, but I had so much to share with y'all!


  1. What a pretty sunset! Sometimes it's nice to go somewhere without technology available..I bought the same paper baskets for finished/not finished assignments :)

  2. I know what you mean about catching up! I was on vacation from Sunday until Thursday night and I have spent the last 2 days catching up on blogs/pinterest/TPT.

  3. Thanks for the sweet comment! We saw some of the prettiest sunsets ever while on vacation and it was nice to have a break from technology too.
