Five for Friday...August 29, 2014

The last two weeks have been busy, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching at last!


We are officially home owners! It's been 8 years since our last move and wow, do we have a lot of STUFF!

We have moved many times and I highly recommend renting a U-Haul truck for 24 hours, it is well worth it.


The joy of moving large appliances up and down stairways!

The mega shindig that every employee of our school district attends was Friday. We had Barbara Morgan as one of our speakers. She is amazing and a great speaker. Barbara is a teacher and an astronaut. Her story is inspiring.

Fall is beginning to show......
the fireweed is turning to "smoke"

I love the reds and purples together

I haven't gotten very far with finishing my classroom, it is functional and most of my students are taking their lessons in regular classrooms, but next week will be another shift in the entire school schedule, keeps us on our toes!

Five for Friday....preparing for!....August 8, 2014


Whew! what a week,we began to set up my classroom and then took it apart again! 
I was not surprised that I was moving, but nothing had been said so I thought it was safe...the day afterwards it was MOVING DAY! There was lots of help though, I work with the best people ever!

I am determined to focus on the positives, we are now...
1. Closer to the Nurse's office.
2. Closer to the gym and the bathrooms.
3. I'm back where I started when I first arrived at this school, I feel at home in this hallway!
(this is my 6th move- however, there are others who have moved more times)

Of course, the real work now begins! This room is considerably smaller then my previous domain. It requires careful arrangement and some serious purging of materials. Naturally I checked on Pinterest and found some good ideas! I found a new blog to follow .... The Dynamic Duo
Next week, I'll have some "after" pictures that will wow you! ha!

Had a really good training today from the Flippin group. Inspirational! It's not that we don't know this stuff, it's that we need reminding that we know it!


It has been nearly 7 weeks since we made the offer on our house...we are told the closing date will be set any day now!
waiting some more.......

Got some new shoes, I think they will be awesome!

It only took 23 tries to find the right ones!


Have a great week!
