I am back and rested and ready to roll!!

Well as you can see, I have been away for almost two weeks. Grad school research class was dominating my writing time.

So I celebrated the end of that class and turning in my research paper by heading to the beach with friends for a few days. My son is away at camp and my hubby was fine with having the house to himself for a few days.  The time away, the sun, a little wine and friends gave me a whole new look on life....

So now I am ready to take on the world. We go back to school in a few weeks and I really have to wrap my head around my TO DO list. I met with my principal yesterday and  found out I am not moving a portable this fall so I am excited about that. Plus it forced me to do some cleaning and purging that will definitely benefit me when school starts back up. 

We also talked about our big DC Field trip next spring. I have been wanting to do this trip with our fifth graders for a long time and it looks like it is really going to happen. We still have a few hurdles to jump but I am excited to be able to give them this opportunity to see our Nationals Capital. Many of our students have never been out of Greenville so this is going to be awesome!

Finally, I have been pinning ideas for next school year like crazy on Pinterest. If you are not already following me over on Pinterest...HERE  is the link.   I have quite a few school related boards and one specifically for the upcoming school year. Check them out!  I need to go look at what I have pinned and start organizing some ideas and get working on some projects before we go back. I have bot decided on a theme, learning toward not doing one. I definitely want to do these classroom handbooks  I saw over on Mrs. D's Corner for Meet the Teacher night. BTW- Mrs. D has an awesome blog. I get lots of great ideas form her and she is currently participating in a very cool book blog linky that I am thinking about doing also. Check out her blog!!! And if you want to get on the picture below to go to her TpT site and grab it (its FREEEEEEEEE!). Don;t forget to leave her some love on her TpT site to thank her!

I also need to get my laptop organized and of course I need to go some shopping. I have picked up a few things at the Dollar Tree but I need to hit Staples and Office Dept and start getting some real school supplies like Sharpies and notebooks and paper. Nothing gets me more excited than seeing these start popping up everywhere!

Well, that is all for now! Thanks for stopping by! Fee free to leave me a comment below and let me know hat is happening over at your blog!
