When I started this blog a little under two months ago, I remember being super excited that 8 people were following me. Of course I was one of them and 2 were my husband. Still, I was thrilled. Now, we're up to 100 in our little blog family.
     I hope this means that I've been able to share some stories, inspiration and ideas that have helped you in your classroom. But you must know, that you have helped me more. You see, as much as I am trying to focus on the positive things going on in schools right now there have been more than a few dark clouds looming over my little sunny spot lately. There are so many major changes happening in my school and my husband's school affecting us in a very close, personal way. In some ways they are life-changing. We are doing our best to wrap our heads around them and move forward and I know for me, this blog will continue to be the best way for me to do that.
    So thank you for being a follower. Thank you for being a friend. I'm not going anywhere anytime soon, and I hope you won't either.

I also hope you will take me up on this special thank you offer. Visit my TpT store,  become a follower and choose any item ($5.00 and under) and I will send it to you for free. Just leave me a comment in this post before May 20 with the item and your email address. That's it!  If you have any questions, just email me at ShopSunnyDays@me.com

  39. I love your blog...everyone loves your blog that's why you are getting followers! I love you...my blog friend from faraway...well, Florida still, but it WOULD be a long walk! :)
    Your email made my night last night, you didn't have to go that extra mile to send it to me, but you did!!! We also have a lot of stress in our district with no raises, no step increase, all 1 & 2 year people let go and then waiting to be rehired, but in our family we say, "Our God is not in a recession, follow him and he will continuely provide for you!" My hubby retired after 20 years in the Navy and now is going to school to be a principal...many tell him that it is crazy in this job market, but he knows it will work out and it will for you and your hubby too! Your blog keeps me positive when things are dark and bleak, keep up the great work, I can't wait to paint my b'boards this summer and I've been around over 22 years and never saw that wonderful tip! :)

  40. PS....I would love Snack Literacy Center ~ My kids have loved everything I have bought from you! :)

    ~*~*You Rock!*~*~

  41. Omigosh Fern! That was just the nicest comment!!
    Good words of advice -thanks :)
    I keep thinking that things just have to turn around at some point, right? There's a plan - we just have to stay positive enough to trust it!

    Good luck to your husband. That's a brave move for sure!

  42. Thank you so much for this fabulous give away. I would love the Word Work Literacy Center.

  45. I am so excited for this giveaway! How generous for you to let us pick our prize! While it was an extremely difficult decision because I love ALL of your resources, I would absolutely love to have your Measurement True/False Cards!
    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

  46. I follow your TPT store and would appreciate your Rounding and Estimating Center. Thanks!

  47. Phew, I almost forgot to get my comment in.... it was certainly hard to pick my favorite activity from your tpt store. I would be so happy to use your word work literacy centers. My kiddos will be so excited for the opportunity to choose their own independent work!
