Paying it Forward Fun!

Whew. This had to be the longest short week in a long time. We have started testing, and stated settling in, and started figuring out this is not kindergarten Toto!

Sooooo many things to do and remember in first grade.
I got a new little sweetie this week and my teacher buddy got two. We are now up to 19 each which are pretty big classes for our small rural school. And our small rural rooms which are a wee bit packed now. But she is awfully cute and sweet, so we are happy to make room.
I have found two of the cutes unteachery blogs this week. They are both from the Midwest and are doing the cutest pay it forward type blogging. I thought it was so cute and sweet that I just knew my fun and sweet teacher/bloggy friends would enjoy it too.
Here are the details and the fine print so make sure you read allllllllll the way to the bottom.
So who doesn’t love a gift? Well I do! And I love giving them. I love finding just the right one to surprise my kids with, and I love surprising my teacher friends with little gifts on their desks every now and then. Christmas is my favorite time of year, and I ALWAYS go overboard on trying to find the just right fit for everyone (and some who aren’t) on my list. So when I read the posts on TheGunny Sack and  Love Like Johnny and June blogs ( don’t you just love those names Johnny and June is one of my favorite songs!) I knew I had to play along. I was like those kiddos of mine jumping up and down waving my arms shouting PICK ME! PICK ME!
So here I am joining in and adding my own pay it forward to three lucky people. Please make sure you leave your email!

The first three people to comment on this post will receive a gift from, moi. It may be something that I long for and wish to share with others, something to wear or maybe just something I love! Whatever it is, it will get special thought and care just for you!

The fine print:
Within a year (it'll be sooner than later), I’ll create something unique to share with the first three people to comment on this post. But, in order to receive your present you have to play along.  Spread the love on your own blog promising to send a little special something to the first three people who comment on your post.
You get 72 hours to re-post, or I’ll have to move on to the next person.
Ok. So these are the rules set forth by somebody somewhere back in the links of links of links.
Seems fun right??
Good luck!
