Tried it Tuesday and Two for Tuesday...

Hello, Tuesday!
It's time for me to link up with my super sweet BBB Holly from
Fourth Grade Flipper for Tried it Tueday.
Today equals week one of my summer gone.
Why is it movin' so fast?

I am tryin' to take pictures every day to document 
my vacation with my family.
I am savin' them to my camera roll on my phone, so I can
print them out when I get home.  I'm backin' up often
since I've broken my thumb drive and dropped my phone
in a toilet the past two months.
So disgustin'!

Here are a few that I have shared on Instagram after
creatin' collages on Instacollage Pro.
I think I have shared this app before...it's free in the iTunes App store.
It's fun...kind of like me! 

First day in Cali...spendin' the day with my mama.
Not missin' the Florida humidity!

Day 2 hangin' with mama at Tehama while dad golfs.

Day 3 Cali...hangin' with dad at the vineyard...checkin' on the grapes.
You will find these grapes in bottles of Bogle, Cupcake or Mark West wines.

 Day 4 Cali...lunch date at some friends' house for Father's Day.

Day 4 Cali...continued.

Day 5 Cali...bein' lazy...all of us got new covers delivered for our 
iPad minis from Amazon Prime.  Watched some 
soccer and helped make dinner. 
I took advantage of Target havin' iPad minis on sale last week for $199
and got my mom one and my dad one.
I used my Red Card and it was $189 a piece. 

Tried it Awesomeness #2: Two for Tuesday with The Teaching Tribune
I have placed two items on sale for 50% off.

You can read about how I use this in my classroom here.

Only $1.13
These are up in Double Trouble, the TpT
collaborative store that Miss Nelson and I have together.
