Listening to Jake and the Never Land Pirates...obviously I have a little one, who isn't so little anymore, he's 4. Who let that happen?
Loving my new summer shoes. So ok I may have gone a little crazy last week and bought 5 new pairs. But I really needed some new sumer shoes and I just love them.
Thinking about packing up my classroom. This year my school departmentalized, 3rd & 4th graders; however, my co-teacher and I were lucky enough to stay self-contained since there were an odd number of 3rd grades, but next year there will be 10 so we'll be switching with another teacher for math. Since we're switching we'll be moving our classroom to a room that is closer to the teacher who will be teaching math to our students. Now this is my 2nd year at this school, so I initially moved in, then last year I packed up my resource room and moved across the hall to co-teach 3rd grade, now we're packing again to move to a better location. It's a lot of moving, but I'm ok with it to get a different room. Maybe it'll help me declutter again. I'm also going to make the move to get rid of my desk when we move. Being a co-teaching classroom we have a lot of furniture. 2 teacher desks, 2 small group tables, plus we have a carpet area, and a classroom library. I'm unwilling to give up the areas for the kids, so good-bye desk.

Who doesn't need more time in the day? My co-teacher and I are planning a food drive for this weekend, it's our first big event and I feel like every time I turn around there's something I'm forgetting. This end of the school year has just seemed to be crazy though. Just about every day on my desk calendar has something going on. I really can't wait for the laid back pace of 5 weeks of summer school half days. No IEP meetings, no meetings at all, no plans, just go with the flow. I really seem to come up with some of my best lessons on the fly. Is anyone else like that?
Summer Lovin. Who does love extra money, especially in the summer. Hoping to put some of that towards a mini vacation for hubby and I, since it's our 5 year wedding anniversary this July. My sister is also having a baby at the end of September, so her shower is the end of July.
