Wow! I was a TOTAL slacker on my blog last year! I really hope I can do a better job this school year, but when there are so many things to get done, I have to pick and choose. I just don't know how many other bloggers do it! I've had a crazy & time consuming summer to say the least. I moved into my own place! I absolutely love my house, but geez Louise, it has been a lot of work! We're finally settled somewhat, and I can do some other things that I've been wanting to do. I guess I can just pick up from here & start with what I've been up to this past week or so. I got back into my classroom about 2 weeks ago and have spent a few days in there. It's still not student ready by any means, but it has made some progress from the huge mess I made it into. Every year I say I'm not going to redo my room again, but then...I get on things like PINTEREST (teacher's heaven) & find way too many ideas. My classroom has always been a smorgasbord (or however you say that). I'm always too indecisive to stick with one theme. This year, I'm starting to move to a major theme. I still have different things in there because I just love everything! This year my major theme is OWLS! I have fallen in love with all the cute owl things. Last year, I had a few owl things in my room, but not as many as this year. I can't wait to show you my final room when I get done with it. I can't believe I only have one more week from tomorrow that school starts back. We had an even longer summer this year because of a legislation passing that school cannot start before Aug. 20 (for students). It still always seems to fly by as does the school year too though. Here are a few pictures of what has been going on this past week or so!
|Bull and I went on a 6 day trip to the BEACH! It was FABULOUS to say the least! This picture was before dinner at Bubba Gump's Shrimp Company in Destin, FL. We had so much fun with his cousins and then with my family. I didn't want to leave!|
|We also celebrated Nana's (Bull's mom) birthday! We all went out for Mexican to celebrate. These beauties are Isabella, Sophie, and Ella. Sophie and Ella are my future nieces. Aren't they PRECIOUS? That little one cracks me up big time!|
Hopefully, I'll be able to keep you more up to date than I have being. You all know we have what we PLAN on doing and what we ACTUALLY get done. Pinky Promise, I'm going to TRY! =)
