Tuesday Thoughts

My final week of summer vacation....(sigh). I've totally enjoyed every minute of it, but it is time to get back into a routine. Chauffeuring my kids all over town has gotten old and so has their constant fighting, so off to school we go.

Here's what I've been doing this past week. I wanted some inspiration, so I went to Dr. Jean's website and found this idea. It's a scrapbook for my students telling them about me. You don't have to be good at scrapbooking to make this one. Very simple. This is her version....
Then I felt inspired to cover my bulletin board. My classroom is only 4 years old, but the tack holes were starting to show, so I decided to cover it with material. I've never tried this before, but heard it's better than paper, which fades quickly.
On Friday, we had overnight guests, so my friends could go to a 40th birthday party out of town I had seven children to entertain, so we went fishing. I love free fun! Boy, did they catch a ton too. Emily, my friend's oldest, caught around 20-24. Glad the fish were hungry or this activity would have gotten old rather quickly!
I thought you might like to see the latest with Grant's foot. We never did get into the doctor's office (not for the lack of trying). They were booked solid, so I discussed the toe issue with a nurse. She was honest to say there's not much we could do anyway. So, Andy cut the nail off after a couple days. I wasn't about to volunteer.
However, I did spend another co-pay at the doctor's office this week. Tyler had an itchy rash all over his legs that were spreading to his upper body. Of course, we tried medicating it on our own, which didn't work. Can you believe Tyler didn't want me taking a photo of the rash? It was an impressive one too!

My charm (mentioned in an earlier blog) was also ready for pick up this week. I love it! Sarah does a fantastic job!

I use fabric on all my B. boards too! Great thing is if it gets dirty, I take it down run it through a cycle on the good old washing machine and it's good to go again. I'll never use paper again!
I haven't even thought about going to my room yet. Haven't even picked up my keys.....

Hmmmm fabric huh, what a good idea!
I'll have to keep that one in mind.

The end of summer is always bittersweet for me. I hate for it to end, but once I step into the classroom, I'm excited to see the kids.

Enjoy your last week!

Tracey, you'll have to show me that necklace when it comes in. Is it the camper one I emailed you about? ;)

I don't blame Tyler for not wanting a picture of his rash on your blog it; as cool as that might be…

I hope you are able to enjoy your last few days of freedom.
