This and That

   I have teaching on the brain! Most other teacher friends have already had to report to work and I am still at home or going to the classroom in a T-shirt and shorts. :) This does not mean that the work has not begun because I am trying to plan for the year and this new job description.  It is nice to plan lessons while watching Olympics and sitting with my puppies. I have also been up to my classroom many times and I still do not feel all ready to go, but I will be. I am trying to figure out what all the bulletin boards will look like and making some bookmarks for the library. I wish I could just let go of the need for a cute saying on a bulletin board. There is no written rule that it has to rhyme or include a pun but I can't help myself! This is why I still have a board to do and have not started it because I can't figure out how to say, 'here are those who have reached their AR goal' in a cute little way with my little detective dog. (I call him Sherlock Bones... do you see what I mean?) 

     I decided last week that You've Got Mail should be my end of summer movie each year. I get SO excited to see the stores full of school supplies. I just love it! It always makes me think of the line in the movie where he wants to send her a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils. I was watching the movie last week while making a vase covered in pencils and I think it turned out cute. I forgot to take a picture of mine but it looks something like this...

Right now it is on my desk with pens that look like flowers in it, but I may change that out to at least all the same kind of flower. 

This is also Birthday time for one sister-in-law, two nephews, a friend, and My HUSBAND!!! Yay for all of these wonderful people being born. 


  1. "Look who's succeeding in Reading"
    "We've reached the objective, Detective"

    I love that line in You've Got Mail! One time Andy actually got me a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils - it was the best!!!!!

  2. You are good, so be expecting a call for Q2 :)

    That is such a cute gift!
