Slice of Life

Snuggling down to read a new library book, but
Before that, made breakfast for dinner. Pancakes and bacon.
Before that, took Colton for a haircut.
Before that, shopped at a pop-up boutique at school. Cute stuff.
Before that, read-aloud from Ranger in Time: Rescue on the Oregon Trail.
Before that, Writer's Workshop and Math.
Before that, a retired teacher friend subbing in Music came to get my kiddos.
Before that, finished up Center time and played outside.
Before that, Lunch!
Before that, three Center rotations.
Before that, met with Board Office people and other first-grade teachers
     to plan our Lesson Study.
Before that, had no idea a co-worker could be such a non-team player. Sheesh.
Before that, a short Guided Reading lesson.
Before that, called mom to wish her a Happy Birthday!
Before that, met Mrs. Cathy to take Colton to school.
Before that, up and at 'em. Morning routine.

2013 Slice Made a scarf

I'm totally stealing this one today. I need a quick slice and this is a great format.

Love how you put this into writing! This is so true. I bought The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People 2 months ago. It's sitting on my bed side table and I have only read a few pages because BEFORE THAT.... And the list goes on....

It's always amazing to me how much we do in any given day.

such a great structure. I often write in my journal every little thing I did, just to remind myself of what I've accomplished, but I like the way you do it backward with the Before that...

I love this post format! I'd seen it before but forgotten...thanks for reminding me!! Plus, pancakes for dinner!? Sounds like a great day :)

That's a great format! Reminds me of the book Tell Me the Day Backwards.
