Wow, was my summer a whirlwind! I did not accomplish a single thing that I thought I would accomplish but boy did I have fun! My brother got married last weekend in San Francisco and it was a wonderful way to end my summer vacation. I spent time with family whom I rarely get to see and it was four days of wedding celebration which meant good food, drinks and playing dress up for four whole days!
Here is my bro and new sister-in-law (aren't they beautiful)!
But now, it is back to work! This is what waited for me when I came in on the first day...
I have a few new things to share and I hope to post my updated classroom pics over the weekend. For now, I am concentrating on preparing for a district workshop that I am leading on Tuesday, having my classroom ready for a back to school night on Thursday and THEN I will be lesson planning. I am starting to feel guilty because I am teaching a new grade level this year and haven't truly dove into the standards, but honestly, I can only do one thing at a time and I am prioritizing!
I hope that you didn't forget about me out there in blog land! I suspect that I will be posting a bit more now that I am settled back into a routine! :)
