Get the Summer Started!

First of all, do you love the new blog make-over? The design is from Dreamlike Magic. I love it!

Woo hoo! I've officially been out for a week, and I am ready to get the summer started! Closing up my room was pretty easy.


I am fortunate enough to be staying in the same classroom and grade level next year (I'm even going to be grade-level chair)!

This is my room, more than half-way done closing it up.

I spent part of one of my post-planning days organizing my files. I weeded out all the old copies that I never use and all the duplicates. I'm such a tech-nerd, but for my birthday I asked for a portable scanner. I have already scanned all my math and reading/ELA files! My filing cabinets are no longer bursting! Only exemplars, crafts, or games are left in my files.    
Just have to scan my science, social studies, and holiday folders. It seems like a lot, but it doesn't take long. I'll save the rest for a rainy day. 

What else have I been up to on my week off? Playing with our new puppy! The husband and I were planning on getting a dog once school got out, but he surprised me back in April. We got a golden-doodle! Her name is Rosie and we love her. She is super smart and full of energy.
She is only 8 weeks old in this picture. She is a bit bigger now (14 weeks old). She should be about 40lbs, but I would love her to stay small forever.


  1. Such a cute puppy! I am getting mine the 12th...the day school gets out:-)
