…and I was still sick on Monday, so I missed the first day of Teacher Appreciation Week with my kiddos.
But I returned Tuesday to the biggest bouquet of flowers ever! 🙂 Yes, they are in a beach pail! 😛
Oh yes. YES YES YES. I was able to get Justin Timberlake pre-sale tickets for myself and the LOVELY Brittany from Closing the Gap…In a Cute Outfit… and not just any ol’ seats. FLOOR SEATS!! What what?!??! We are gonna dance and scream like teenage girls. AWESOMENESS.
Wednesday was our Field Day and although my class is not the most athletic bunch… we still had a blast! AND…. get ready…. we were Tug Of War Champions!!! I don’t have any pictures because A, I was shouting and encouraging my kids to pull hard, and B, MY CAMERA DIED!!!!!! Ugh. I can’t even begin to describe my dismay. 🙁
First of all, everyone knows there is NOTHING better than getting fun mail… ESPECIALLY packages!!! But a package filled with awesome school supplies?!? Every teacher’s DREAM!!!! My sweetest of the sweet BBBs: Joanne from Head Over Heels For Teaching, sent me this fabulousness! And apparently, she is an EXPERT packer!! There are so many awesome things in this box of loot, but I’d say the best of it all are the paper clips in the shape of HIGH HEELS!!! So of course, now every time I use one I will think of her. 🙂
Joanne is just one of the reasons why blogging has been so rewarding- when I started, I never had any idea I would form the relationships I have formed! Honestly, teachers are awesome, but teacher bloggers are the BEST! Who would have thought you could form such bonds over hundreds, sometimes thousands, of miles away!? Although technology is the bane of my existence sometimes, in this case, I couldn’t imagine my life without it!
