I'm a few days behind but I still wanted to make sure I linked up with Farley's Linky before it was too late!
My sister went back to school today so I get to spend the last bit of my summer with my two nieces! Today they helped me finish a few things in my classroom...and they were a huge help! They're playing house right now and as I wrote above, they're married...and now one just had a baby! Have you ever just listened to kids play house? I should really have started recording this! It's like a really bad soap opera!
While we were at school today I finished putting away all of my piles. MOST of them are where they need to be but some were just stashed in my supply closet. I'll admit it. That closet needs a total make-over anyway and if there's time before school starts I'll do it but for right now everything is tucked inside....out of sight to everyone but me!
Now that my room is mostly set up I have list a mile long of labels I need to make for my classroom...our library, journals, supplies, cubbies, etc.
I'm wanting a personal assistant. I think we all should have one...for obvious reasons.
I'm really needing my achilles tendon to heal. I started to push myself to run further distances this summer just to see if I could do it. I got up to 5 miles for a couple of runs and that's when things started to hurt a bit. I swear I hobble around like an old lady until things get moving and then it doesn't hurt as bad but whew! It's a doozie right now. Of course all of the climbing up and down ladders, chairs and tables to set up my room hasn't probably been the best for me either. Ugh!
My first official day of school is Tuesday, August 19. We have one day of district meetings, one day of building level meetings and the third day is our day to spend in our rooms. Our Open House is Wednesday, August 20. My new first graders come on Monday, August 25!
It will be here before I know it!
