And for your scrappy gals out there, I do finally have a layout to share. I have not been sharing too much lately because most of my layouts are saved for possible publication (everyone seems to want "unseen" layouts these days, and I can't blame them) or for contests. But, I came across this one that I did a little while ago. I can't believe how different my Ryan looks these day. These pictures were taken almost 1 1/2 years ago. My little man is growing up so fast!

I attended my Tuesday night class at University, and we had a great time playing with K'nex! Yes, I said "playing with K'nex." These great little building pieces that my son has played with for years are excellent tools for use in the classroom for many disciplines. A retired teacher who now works for K'nex was our guest, and he came armed with boxes of these little gems. We built shapes, played games, and basically learned about a great resource for classes from kindergarten on up through High School. That is one thing that I do like about being "forced" for further my education...there is a lot to learn out there. For any of you who are classroom teachers, homeschool your children, or just have children of your own, take a peek at the K'nex website for some great ideas to work with. You will not be disappointed! And yes...they will easily tie into your state standards!
