Summer ending’s got me like…

Summer ending’s got me like…

It’s been such a fun summer and I am not quite ready for it to end but the real world is sneaking up on me fast. 

I went on lots of fun trips with my summer job as an outdoor camp counselor and spent some quality time with my sweet girl. Then about two weeks ago we rescued another little dog from our local humane society. We are topping it off with a week long trip to the beach with the whole family. I *might* be ready for school and Fall when this week is over. But in the words of my nephew, “prolly not.” 😊

Here’s Henrietta Puddles Pierce Osborne! She’s our newest addition and is sweet as pie! She’s an Australian shepherd and Labrador mix and we rescued her from our local humane society. 

I’ll be back when school starts back! 😎

New Year, New Beginnings, New Budget

New Year, New Beginnings, New Budget

So last year I shared with you a picture that embodied how I felt about the first day of workdays. I will now do the same for this year:

Bless. We were all just having too much fun to do the whole work thing! But I’m over it now and back in work mode/teacher mode/get up on time like a responsible adult mode. (Ha, not really. That’ll NEVER happen!)
Of course we’ve all been working ridiculously hard and yet I feel I have little to show for it. Meetings meetings meetings… But today will be the day! I will get ALL of my bulletin boards put up. I will get my table labels on tables that I will clean. I will even crack open the old lesson plan book (again, not really – I’m a tech girl living in a digital world. Now read that again like you’re Madonna.)
Well, here is what I have so far:
We will be learning the colors from my table labels in French, Spanish, Dutch, and Greek this year. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: thank goodness for Google Translate.

And then I’ve also completed one entry way bulletin board. Thanks to Mercedes Benz and Katie Morris for this awesome idea!


Alright, it’s 7am and I still haven’t gotten out of bed – see, I told you I would never really be a responsible adult!
