A Year of Awesome (With a Not-So-Awesome Twist) - Week 11

Unfortunately this is going to be a different sort of Week of Awesome. (Unfortunately for ME that is...)
Today started out really awesome! We were lucky to have Juno-nominee Craig Cardiff with us for a performance and some music workshops. I was thoroughly enjoying the music and watching the kids singing along, but then disaster struck. Yup, I went from this:
to THIS:
These photos doesn't do it justice. My hand is twice its normal size and I haven't been able to use it for anything (yup, I typed this one-handed), and the rest of me is covered in bruises. I tripped straight over one of the benches in the gym. I was concentrating on kids on the opposite side of the gym and didn't even see it. Soooo... I spent three hours in the emergency department and got seven x-rays to determine that nothing is broken (YAY!!) but I'll be home for a few days and am NOT feeling awesome whatsoever. 
Today was my first day back at school. I was slow-moving and sore, but it was great to see the kids. They missed me. :) Take a look at the book of letters I returned to...
That's awesome! ❤

  5. Hi Erin,
    So sorry to hear about your fall! Hope you are feeling better. I am very interested in this giveaway - I am already following you on TPT. I have listed many different featured items (not sure of my follower number?) but still no luck. Any ideas? Thank you!
