A Visit from Isaac

It's 11:31 am on Thursday, and I'm at home.
It seems our tropical friend Isaac decided to visit today.
I use the term "friend" loosely.
I think most would tell you he's overstayed his welcome!

Well, at least he's wanted to keep the lights and air conditioning on this time.
Many of his other pals from the tropics prefer darkness and heat.
We don't like them, either.


Seriously, though, I can't imagine what my neighbors on the coast and in LA are feeling today.
We, in Jackson, were spared the worst of it. We still have homes.
Some of our coastal neighbors' homes are completely underwater.
In Plaquemines Parish, LA, the flooding is worse than when Katrina visited.
And we all remember that.
Please say big prayers for them.


A little geography lesson for those who are interested:
Jackson, MS sits in the south central part of the state. A little to the west.

We are 3 hours from the MS Gulf Coast (depending on who's driving).
We are also 3 hours from New Orleans (again, depending on who's driving).
Some would say we are 2 1/2 hours from both.
On the eastern side, we are 3 hours from Mobile and 4 hours from Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
When a hurricane hits the Gulf Coast, we feel the effects!
But not nearly as much as our neighbors to the south.

Please keep them in your prayers!

So on this Hurricane Day, I actually awakened at 6:30 and got out of bed around 7:00. 
Why? I don't know. 
But, I've been able to get some work done this morning,
in my pajamas.
I have 6 activities I'm working on right now. 

This is my progress:
Activity 1-complete and ready to print
Activity 2-complete and ready to print
Activity 3-complete and ready to print
Activity 4-75% complete
Activitiy 5-50% complete
Activity 6-Mostly in my head, about 5% complete.

Here is a peek at what I've been doing. All 3 of the following packs include a Sight Word game with the first 200 Fry words AND the directions and recording sheets for a Musical Words game.

This one has been uploaded to TpT.  It's 47 pages for $3.
I'll get it uploaded to TN later today. 

These 2 are ready for uploading.
I realize they are 3 and 4 months away, respectively.
When the creative thought hits, you run with it.


You can purchase the bundle of 3 at a discounted price if you are interested in that.
I'll try to do that this weekend.

I hope your Thursday is a sunny one!!

  1. I live in New Albany (near Tupelo). We received a lot of rain today. Our school practiced a tornado drill, just in case...Your community is in my prayers. Hopefully life will return to normal soon!

  2. I'm so glad you're okay!
    We had a little earthquake about 13k off our island yesterday. Heard a big bang and our school started shaking ... but that was it. Super quick and nothing serious.
    Your sight word games look intriguing ... may have to grab those :)
