A Sad Day In Oklahoma

Today was the 1st day of my summer break.  I had planned on packing up my room and completing all the necessary end of the year stuff.  That came to an abrupt stop when I received a text from my sister that my brother's house was right in the path of the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.  I prayed immediately for protection for him and his family.   Within a few minutes I received another text.  His house was hit.  Nothing more. He was finally able to send another text to let us know that he and his family were safe.  His house received property damage, but a 1/2 block away every house was leveled.   

I've spent the afternoon glued to the TV.  The tears just continue to flow for those  that have lost loved ones, their homes, businesses, pets, and for those that have no idea where their loved ones are.    

It is such a sad day in Oklahoma!

School is Winding Down!!!! & Steelmaster Table Stand Review

Three more days of school and it's over!!!  I'll just say it's been an interesting year.  I'm already getting excited about next year.  I will be having a student teacher in my classoom!  I met her yesterday and I suddenly realized how old I am.  She is just a baby!   More about this exciting adventure later...

But for now I have a product that I want to share with you. generously sent me a Steelmaster Tablet Stand in exchange for my honest review. Here is a picture of what it looks like. 

It couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. I just purchased a Kindle Fire HD (thanks to my awesome teacher buddy) & I was just beginning to realize how inconvenient it was when I was  following a recipe in the kitchen or watching a movie.  I had to either hold it or prop it up so I could see.  I could never seem to get it at the angle I needed.  Now, with the Steelmaster Table Stand, I can easily place my Kindle (in its case or without its case) on the stand and I know it’s not going to move!    

The Steelmaster Tablet Stand came assembled and ready to use.  It is light-weight, but sturdy!  I was pleased to see a non-skid padding on the bottom of it that will not allow the furniture to be scratched.

Have a great day!
