Stadium Approved Bags
Heading into the next few weeks in the Omaha area, we all know what is coming. College World Series. Yes! I love this time of the year. The thought of going to the baseball games, beer in my hand. Then I get there. It's hot. I'm sweating. My thighs are sticking to the stadium seats. I'm tired of baseball after the fourth inning. But hey, maybe that's just me.
One thing I always forget about during this time of the year is security. I 100% appreciate the safety factor of select purses only being allowed in the stadium. It is an amazing change... if you're prepared. So I am here to help you out! Here are some of Amazon's top choices for cute, stadium-approved, clear bags! Be prepared so you don't have to throw away your bag when you get there...

All these purses are cute, affordable, and most importantly essential for you to get into the College World Series, or ANY sporting events now. Happy Shopping!

School is finally out. Throughout the year you become so connected to your students. You learn their favorite TV shows, what condiments they like and don't when helping them with lunch, you hear about their home lives, you see how much they have grown throughout the year. The end of the year is always bittersweet. Hate to see them go, but love to watch them leave to move onto the next stage of their lives.
Along with this time of the year, it becomes hectic for teachers. Final grades, PD, cleaning our rooms, and already looking ahead to the next year are just some of the things we do the last few weeks before and after school end.
If you're like me, you can occasionally add seasonal depression to the mix. If you live in the midwest, you know what we are talking about.
Rain, rain, and more rain. It seems we have more rain that sun lately, and it has seemed to take a tole on my overall health.
No motivation. No goals set. No will to clean, go out, or be social. Our last PD for the year was a training over mental health and the importance of it now. So many kids face challenges at home and come to school with them. Along with student mental health, teachers have to be able to be healthy themselves first before helping others. I really enjoy talking about mental health and what it means and how to get out of our "funks". Yesterday we talked about how important it is to reach out to someone if you're feeling down. If you are, we talked about or stress relievers. Do you have one? Who do you go to? What do you go to? I've never thought about it, honestly, until yesterday. But here are mine:
- Go on a walk with my dog
- Organize or clean my house
- Spend some time on social medias (Instagram being my favorite) and catch up with what everyone is doing
We also discussed how important it is to point out the good if not everyday, at least once a week. What are three good things that happened this week that made you smile or excited you?
My takeaway from our training yesterday was this:
Mental health should not come with a label. It should not be a stigma. Reach out if and when needed because everyone is fighting their own battles and could use a friend. Also remember:
