Ten on Ten: Take a photo every hour for ten consecutive hours on the tenth of each month. Document a day of your life and find beauty among the ordinary moments. Then share your beauty with us!

The heater in my classroom is broken, so they had to bring me a space heater because it was 58 degrees in there this morning!
My weekly Brain Teaser for my students. Can you figure it out?
Entering a bunch of grades before my 4 day weekend!
Anyone else have a 4 day weekend because of Veterans Day?
I am so thankful for those who serve & protect our country.
Fall trees in our neighborhood! The trees are finally changing colors!
Boulder is in a time out outstide because when I got home from work she was laying on our new couch! She is NOT allowed on the furniture. Silly dog.
While the girls were napping, I was busy editing pictures from last weekend's photo shoots. And, I raided their Halloween candy stash! I needed some energy!
Making cookies after nap time! Chocolate Chip, our favorite (Kate, totally sneaking a chocolate chip...caught red handed!) And, Claire is still in a mood. It was one of those days for her, cookies didn't even help!
Early Bath time! (That is one good thing about it getting darker with Daylight Savings...you can get your kids ready for bed earlier. I know I'm not the only one who does this...right?)
Let me know if you participated so I can check out your set!
Hope you had a great 10th!


  1. Everytime you do this post I convince myself I need to start doing it too... maybe in December?
    YAY for your long weekend!

  2. Poor Claire. Hopefully tomorrow's a better day for her.

  3. My kids have been going to bet at 730 since DST haha. I did two ten on tens today...I cheated

  4. Great idea. I'll have to remember to do this next month

  5. Ha! Teachers must be on the same wave length. I too had candy and started getting The Offspring ready for bed at an earlier hour.

    4 day weekend? Jealous.

    Excellent 10, fo sho!

  6. Yes. 4 day weekend here too. Glad I'm not the only one raiding the Halloween candy. :)

  7. yes! natalie's bedtime is 8 and last night we had her in jammies at 6:45 and was sleeping shortly after!

  9. Your Claire is starting to look so much older all of a sudden. I know, you hate to hear that right? Your girls are both so cute. Love that picture of the fall tree!

    Enjoy your 4 day weekend!

  10. Beautiful pictures, as always!
    Good call on raiding the candy stash. :)

  11. You've inspired me to join this fun meme! And yes, I try to put my kids to bed earlier now. Except my 8 year old can tell time. Drat.

  12. Oh that Claire, what a pout! She's so funny!

    Seeing your grade book makes me miss mine- I used to teach high school English and Spanish. Love the color coding, too! Happy sigh. Some people just don't understand, do they? :)

    Come stop by and see my ten on ten!

  13. Great pictures...as always! I am so bummed I thought of this at about 4 yesterday and forgot again...need to do it next month. I have to write it down!

  14. You accomplished a LOT that day! What a great idea... I'd have to do this on the weekend when my kiddos as home. I have WAY too many pictures of my daycare kids, and not enough of my own.

  15. I say I'm going to do this every month...and every month I forget. I even put it on my calendar last month. fail.

    Maybe next month....or, hey you wouldn't know if i take the pictures tomorrow. i might fool ya! LOL

  16. Darn, I completely forgot about it yesterday and I was actually home all day long because Easton was sick! Oh, well, maybe next month!

  17. I love this idea. I thought about it, but chickened out. I will next time!

  18. Great pics Mel....I'm glad I'm not the only one raiding the Halloween candy.

  19. I love your 10 on 10! Your girls are precious. Hope Claire is having a better day.

    This was the first month I actually remembered to do one- I was so excited to finally join in all this fun! :)


  20. Holy heck, I burst out laughing at the second face Claire is making! So dang funny. :)

    Here is what I'm going to do: find a month where the 10th does NOT fall on a day I work, and set myself a reminder to do this. Otherwise you would get pictures of my boring desk and deposit slips all day. :P

  21. Nice set. I can rarely resist the meltdown shot. I love the tree pic! Thanks for sharing.
