More FL Fun...and a freebie!

Hey friends!!  I've been SOOOO enjoying my summer vacation!! We aren't going on a BIG vacation this summer, but we're doing a LOT of little things around here in the great state of FL...

We've already done Sea World...and a few other fun things here and there, but last weekend, we went to a wine festival!!

Here's me and hubs at the winery...can you see the HILLS!? haha...yes..it's like a different country in this area of FL...it's got HILLS!

This winery is so fun!! We did a winery tour and then a wine tasting.....it was SOOO yummmy!

I only bought two bottles...I clearly didn't think about that...lol...

We did some wine stomping...


It was a competition, and I actually WON! woo!!!

And then Autumn wanted to do it so her and daddy did it....



and we must be a family of winners...because Autumn won too!! woo!!



If you've been following my instagram, you know I've been taking a workshop this week...



We've been REALLY using our brains and thinking super hard!! haha

No seriously....My mind has been going a million miles a minute thinking of all the ways I could incorporate and change things in my class...I LOVE when I LOVE workshops! This one is all about cooperative learning...using a lot of Kagan strategies. I've had Kagan training before, but it was like 8 years ago, and I've grown SO much in my teaching in the last few years, that I wanted a refresher so that I could adapt it my teaching - how i teach NOW....I am LOVING it!

BONUS??? On the way home, I can go the OTHER way, and hit up my one of my favorite lunch spots AND the beach...so 


But I have also been "working".... from my workshop this week, I've learned about how important it is to TEACH about emotions...and I think it's especially important to teach about emotions in a Title I school. SO, I made this little diddy...


Go and download it for FREE from TpT....

I hope you're enjoying your summer!

Sounds like such fun! I LOVE Florida, and used to pop down a couple of times a year to visit friends. I haven't been in six years... long over due!

Thanks for the freebie - I just went and put it on my wish list. I wish I could take an alternate route home and hit the beach :) Enjoy yourself!
