Spelling for All Seasons Part TWO!

This was promised in November, and I just couldn’t get it finished!  The adoption approval totally took precedence in my life from the beginning of November through the first week of December.  There was SO MUCH paperwork to do, in addition to developing a 20 page Shutterfly profile (a 20+ hour feat in itself), and getting our home ready for our social worker to visit.  Seriously, not a second to spare!
And, then, voila, it was Christmas!  Yesterday!  And, I turned THIRTY two days before that! 
So, please forgive me for my month-long absence.  I have a bajillion things to catch up on, but – for now – here is the much awaited Spelling for All Seasons Part Two.  This is a follow-up from Spelling for All Seasons Part One that came out of the summer.  Check out the details
Here’s a little sample of the included craftivities to take you right up to the end of the school year :)
Merry Christmas!  More to come…PROMISE!

Thanks for the spelling art projects. We used the Part 1 during the first semester and my school sweeties loved it.
Good luck with your family's journey.

We adopted our oldest in 2006. I know the pressure of getting it all done. And you were still smiling on your birthday. I wish you the best and if you ever have questions/ frustrations about the process, please feel free to contact me. It can be very lonely of you don't have someone you know who has ben through it.

We adopted 2007 & 2010, both boys! I will place your name on my waiting families & start praying. We have been so blessed by the experience and can't wait to see what God has in store for your family. And waiting is the hard part, but so worth it!

Congratulations! I was adopted by two fantastic parents in 1968! My Mom is 85 and lives next door! I am her primary caretaker as she has Alzheimer's now. She is a fantastic Mom and we'll get through this together! I always tell her she didn't grow me in her belly BUT she did grow me in her HEART!
I would love to invite you to my New Year Linky Party at You can link up your long awaited project and join lots of other great teacher authors and teacher bloggers. The party has just started!
