I am an Idiot

In the words of Roald Dahl, "We all have our moments of brilliance and glory..." This is either one of those for me or a complete opposite experience.  The other day I was in my classroom and thinking about how I like to bring in new books every few weeks to put in the library center so my kiddos don't get bored with the selection.  I was thinking about how costly that can be.  Then it hit me! Duh! Stash some of my books away in a box and pull them out during the year.  They will still be new to the kiddos just not new to me.  I am sure many of you already do this but it just now dawned on me.  Of course, I will still probably end up buying lots of new books.  Hope your week is going well!


  1. So not an idiot...

    Sometimes the simple things get lost on us because we are concentrating so much on the more difficult ones! :)

    Thanks for sharing. Also, thanks so much for sharing the Krulls' blog last month, too. It has been so inspiring and such a faith-filled experience for me to follow it! I am praying for Lucy and her family constantly. Thanks again.

  2. Haha! Don't worry, I think we have all had those moments. So simple and yet so brilliant. Can't wait to see the classroom all set up.
