It has been so long since I've posted something so I thought I would stop by and say hi!  This summer has just flown by this year!!  I spent the first half of my summer teaching at a Summer Reading Academy {amazing experience}.  After completing that on July 21{felt like an eternity} I headed to the beach with my husbands family!  
 Granted that is not the whole family, just me, my awesome sister-in-law, and my three nieces!  Spending a week at the beach was JUST what the doctor ordered! :)

Now I am in FULL back-to-school mode and have an ever growing list of to-do's!!!!  I'm in the process of putting the finishing touches on my stool {see previous post} and am in the middle of making a pirate ship to host as my job chart {I'm copying the wonderful Deanna Jump... don't you just want to be her?! ha}.  I've also started working on my new first grade office's {pics to come}, and setting up my classroom with cute pirate-themed decor!  I can't wait to show you all the goodies.  Stay Tuned!
