Over the last few summers, I’ve spent a lot of time in my classroom working on lessons, organizing the room, prepping instructional materials, etc (teachers, you know the drill). But this summer my school got a new roof (which is awesome) and it put the school on lockdown. We weren’t allowed in all summer so I’m seriously behind. It was nice in a way- it forced me to take a real break from work.
So I’ll be putting in some majorly long days in the next couple of weeks trying to get ready for a new year! Here are my new little classroom plants and the crayon wreath I made for my door this summer. I’m thinking of adopting a fish. Arty the Art Room Beta? We’ll see..
Yeah, I copied a wreath I saw on Pinterest. Are you using that site yet? An ever-changing virtual pinboard? It is amazing. SO many good ideas. Right now I’m inspired to make a bunch of crock pot meals in bags, freeze them, and pull them out over the first few weeks of school for dinners. Brilliant? Yes. My idea? Not exactly. I found a link to this blog on Pinterest. I’m not crazy about her recipes, so I’ll be trying other things, but the idea of cooking meals for a month at once is very smart. I’ll let you know how my attempt works out!
ALSO, have you been watching SHARK WEEK? I love it, but it makes me super paranoid. Rogue sharks=creepy.
As for the lack of posting here recently, our lives have gotten super crazy lately. Hopefully things will be settling down in the coming weeks!
