It is May.. How?

And the 13 days of school pic was actually taken on Monday. We are down to 9 day now! WOW! I am certain it will fly by super fast!



Next Friday I get to meet my students for next year. I have been working on a summer practice pack for them to take home and do over the summer break.  I have it listed in my store if you would like to take a look.. just click on the cover below.



Yesterday we had our elementary art show.. and it is always so nice. It is wonderful to see our talented kids work on display. Our art teacher is amazing!




I have been instagraming {is that a word?} this week. It all started when What the Teacher Wants and Apples and ABC’s threw out a little teacher instagram challenge.


Then Clutterfree Teacher threw out another…

So, I jumped on the instagram train. I actually have had a personal account for a few years but I never did anything with it and I sure never used #hashtags {I was so lost!} But, after a quick lesson from a friend and also when I realized I could have two accounts I was ready to go!

I am enjoying a personal day off from school today.. I got up early and have been working on some DBP orders and hopefully will have some time this afternoon to work on a few school projects. It is cold and raining and I just might take a little nap.. bring on SUMMER!
