I am seriously in shock that it is December already. I know that I am definitely getting ahead of myself but, we are almost halfway through the school year! UNREAL! Discussions are being made about the 100th day of school already! Well, I don't think there is anything I can really do about it so let's link up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade for December Currently!
My dad always watched Andy Griffith growing up. I didn't love it too much back then but, I can't get enough of it now! I {heart} Barney Fife big time!  It comes on every day here right around the time I get home and it is the perfect background noise to working on school stuff!
We moved into our house two weeks ago! We have spent that time unpacking, organizing, and decorating and I am absolutely loving it! I do not miss apartment living one little bit. We have painted everything, arranged and rearranged furniture, and set up our Christmas tree. Things are starting to feel more like a home and I am so very thankful.
I know I just had four days off from school last week but it was just so nice that I am now on the countdown to winter break. The Mister and I were thrilled to spend so much quality time together and with a gazillion things to do, winter break can't come soon enough. I don't really have too much to complain about because my Kinders have been super awesome the past two days after the break. Bless them!
Pinterest, although a wonderful thing, makes me want all things home d├ęcor these days. I am loving the process of decorating the house but MAN! Who wouldn't want their house to look like one of those Pinterest houses instantly.
PLUS my clip art addiction is well known. My name is Lindsey Nihart and I am a Creative Clips addict. I am halfway sure that Krista Wallden puts some sort of magic spell on me and makes me buy all of her memberships. I HAVE NO CONTROL.
Y'all. I seriously love creating products. I told the Mister the other day that I was going to become a stay-at-home wife and keep our house clean and create TPT products all day long because I am positive that both of those things cannot be done while being a full time teacher. I am working on it.

One of my latest creations has been a pack called Count On It! I am -thisclose- to posting it on TPT but I just keep adding things to it. So as a little preview I will share one of the counting mats and one of the recording sheets! If we are keeping it real, counting sets is something my kiddos need help on the whole year long so these have been so helpful and I hope you think so too!

Check it out here!

Happy December!


  1. You're not the only one counting down till Winter break!!! I'm right there with ya! I'm also right there with you on your "needing" - I say this to my husband allllll the time!! Well, ok, maybe I leave out the cleaning part and just say I'll sit on the couch, watch TV, and create create create! It's similar though, right?!
    13 days...good luck!!

    1. Thanks Elyse! So glad you stopped by! Thanks for giving feedback too! We can make it 13 days for sure!

  2. Congratulations on your new house! I was never an Andy Griffith fan as a kid. I do like it now, though. I love Krista's clip art, too. I use it on almost everything! Happy December. Have a blessed Christmas.
