A little big of GOOD news!!!

There is so much sadness and heartache going on in the world right now. I'd be lying if I said the last few days haven't been hard. I'm sure they have been for everyone. After hearing the awful news of the tragic event in CT, I immediately became full of anger. I still just don't understand how someone could be so heartless. I hugged my sweet kiddos a little harder that day. My thoughts are prayers are with every child, student, parent and teacher during this time.

On Friday, I got to leave school an hour early!! Each year during the Holidays we have "gift of time" where another teacher volunteers to watch your class with theirs (movie time!) while you get to leave early to shop or to just relax! I left at 2 and started my 3 1/2 hour drive east to my boyfriends house. During this time I was an emotional wreck, listening to news reports on the radio and lets throw "is he going to ask me to marry him emotions" into the mix! When I got there (he was a nervous wreck) he was very supportive in my emotions. To get me out of the house and my mind off things yeah right he took me to a the Winter Wonderland Park downtown. There was ice skating, booths, and a BEAUTIFUL  courthouse covered in lights! At exactly 7:00 pm, music started blaring and lights started flashing and he got down on one knee and asked me to MARRY HIM!!! I was so surprised not really, I knew!!

 
 


I was so excited to share my news with my TPT/blogger friends! In the short time I've been doing this, I've already started to develop friendships. Throughout all the sadness of the day, it ended up being the best day of my life so far!

Here are a few responses I got after telling my kids I was getting married today
1. "will your name be "Mrs. Future Fambro"
2. After saying my last name will be Bernethy "Can I just call you Mrs. B because that name is really hard to say"
3. "Are you going to get mean because people have kids after they get married and my mom is always mad at me?!?"
4. Do we call your MRS now or still MS??
5. "Are you going to have a zebra dress because you always wear zebra?"
They were too cute and so excited!!


I hope you don't mind me sharing! I'll talk about more Christmas Around the World (we bust a piƱata tomorrow!!!) and our graphs unit more this week! I keep telling myself, get through this week and THEN you can think about a wedding!


Wedding Tickers

I did manage to find the time to post my newest unit! The 100th Day of school will be here before you know it! Its one of my favorite days! I missed it last year :(. You can check out Hooray! We Made it to the 100th Day! here!

 
How was everyone's day?? I was lucky to not get asked any questions about the shooting. Did you? How did you handle it?
 
I'm off to make my wedding binder! AHHH!
