For the Kids Friday #130

It's Party Time!

I am officially teaching grade 4 at the FABULOUS new GEMS World Academy in the Tianjin Eco-City in China.  I has been a very, very busy week for me, and a big transition for us as a family.  This will be the first time I have worked outside of the home since my children were born.  I feel like it is a good time for us as a family to make this change, and I am already loving my new role.  However, I... AM... EXHAUSTED!!!

I really wish I could say I have some great features to share from our last party, but as busy as I have been, I do not.  I think I will have to put my features on hold for a while so I can dedicate the time I do have to my family.  You can be guaranteed For the Kids Friday will be posted each week.  So please be sure to stop back to share and to grab some new ideas!

Thanks so much for your continued support.  I love seeing so many of you return week after week.  Love you all!!!  XOXOX

For the Kids Friday #129

It's Party Time!

ACK!!!!  I am SO sorry this week's party is posting late.  I do have a very good excuse, however!  I have been busy getting my classroom ready and have not had much time to do or think about anything else.  This year I will be teaching grade 4 at GEMS World Academy, an international school that is just opening in a town near our home here in China.  I am very, very excited to be in the classroom!!!

So with a busy year ahead, I am really not sure where my blog will go.  I will not be able to share quite as often.  I could continue to share the things that I am creating.... or I could take on more of an educational focus and share what I am doing in the classroom.  I would LOVE to hear your thoughts.  What do you want to see from SunScholars?  I appreciate your feedback!!

And because I just don't have the time this week, I will not be sharing features.  I can't wait to see what you have all been up to!  Thanks so much for being here and sharing with us!

Time for another Party!

24 hours of travel time, 13 hours on a plane with three kids (and no husband), and we are back in China!  We are getting over the jet lag, and settling in again to our routines.  It is good to be "home"!  We are enjoying our last days of summer, and hope you and your families are doing the same!

For the Kids Friday #127

Time for another Party!

I think this has been the most stressful week of the summer for me.  Between my hubby heading back to our home in China, dealing with the stress of documents not arriving in time for me to manage my immigration papers to be able to work when arrive in China, trying to manage transfer of our home to new renters, and feeling the stress of living in someone else's space for the 8th straight week in a row.... Is summer over yet??!!  The life of an expat, for sure!!  I am happy to say that this weekend my kiddos and I are hopping back on a plane to return to China.  I am SO ready to be back on our normal routines and in our own home again.

However, we DID manage to enjoy a wonderful day in Niagara Falls while we are visiting Canada.  Check out this amazing picture!

We also got to enjoy time at Marineland near the falls, where the kids had so much fun.  The highlight was getting to interact with the Beluga whales.  Love it!

Hope you are all enjoying your last days of summer!!!

For the Kids Friday Features

Playing some catch-up here...

We have been busy having lots of fun in Canada.  After being away from my hubby for a month, we have really enjoyed having him with us again.  We have been making the most of our time back home this summer, and were so excited to enjoy a camping trip to Lake Erie for a few days.  Because of that, however, I wasn't able to share features from our last party.  There were so many great ideas (and really... I am never just saying that!!), and it is always so hard to narrow it down to a few.  Here are my most favorite shared last week.  Please take a moment to check out these great ideas and amazing blogs!!  And as always, thank you all for sharing at For the Kids Fridays!  You all help to create this awesome resource!  XOXO

Time for another Party!

Wow! So many great ideas shared at last week's party! Can you believe it is August?!! We will all be heading back to school soon!  We are enjoying our last couple weeks of summer holiday, and we are back to China in one more week.  Not much summer time left!
