Book Markers

We are full speed doing school. The weather here in Virginia has been a little chilly, which means is not calling me, by my name, to go outside and do gardening. One of my friends visited me for a week or so, and helped me to plant bulbs. Also, I don't like to have a brown lawn in the winter, so I will seed some cold weather grass, it may be a little late, hopefully no frost comes and kills the tender sprouted seeds, after this, I think I will be done gardening for this year. Going back to the school subject... I'm teaching Second and Fourth grade and I have like eight teacher's books to read, Writing, Phonics, Math, Natural Science, Social Studies and Spanish. Its frustrating to flip pages when I'm trying to find the lesson I need to teach each day, without a book marker.

My daughter has a good imagination and spends a lot of time drawing. I find little papers with drawings all over the house, like the one above, she said the possums are one of our friends with her husband, and the little possums hanging on her tail are her two sons, I thought it was so cute, I just hope our friend don't get offended.

I cut some pieces of construction paper and asked her to draw something on them, to make some book markers for me.
This is what she came up with, I just "framed" them with coloring pencils and put ribbon through the holes.

  1. Thank you for visiting FIMBY and leaving such a lovely comment. These are very sweet bookmarks. I see you follow the Maxwells. When Celine was just a baby I read her MOTH book and learned a lot about family and home management. Glad to have found you and thanks again for visiting.
