Let's make an update of what's been going on in my life and then we can get back to normal posting soon! (By September at the latest!)
I got to go see the Killers in concert! I have always wanted to see them in concert, so I was stoked when Bestie K offered me the ticket. We had the best time. They truly do give a great concert!
It was an awesome night in the middle of a stressful week - the first week back to work. There was so much to do, but I'm glad I took the break to go have some fun!
Up next: The Classroom!
I had so much fun moving to a new classroom and redecorating it. My theme was originally pirates and somehow evolved to nautical. I will be posting lots more pictures over at Moments to Teach soon if you're interested in seeing more. Here's a few for your viewing pleasure though:
I have received so many compliments on my room this year that it's made me a happy girl. :) One teacher even said it seemed like a little apartment in my room. Yay for good decorating! I absolutely love walking into it in the mornings. It definitely fits me.
I have tried several new things lately and will be blogging about them in upcoming posts, but I thought I'd share a creation I made for Meet the Teacher night since we're on the topic of school. I let my crafty side come out for this one. Mom hated me by the end of making these!
I wanted to serve cupcakes at Meet the Teacher night. I love baking and I figured it'd be something fun for the kids. However, we just got new carpets (don't they look pretty in the pictures above?) and I didn't want to have something spilled on the carpet before school even starts. So, I invented cupcakes to go. The pictures are below and I'll share a tutorial in an upcoming post. They were a huge hit! Kindergarten teachers came down the hall later just to see the cute boxes that were coming to their room as siblings visited their teacher.
For now, have a happy weekend! I'm off to post classroom pictures on my teaching blog and then to get creative with Publisher!
