My life (school life) is a mess!

AH Saturday! :) No summer school today so I am having a great day! Enjoying some R&R. Hopefully everyone is enjoying their weekend.

Well... I had to drop some stuff off to my new school earlier this week. I had not been there since my things had been delivered. I am blessed to work in a district that moves your things for you as long as you are just transferring campuses SO I only had to tag/label every item...pack... and pile it all up! They placed everything on pallets, wrapped it up and forklifted it out of there! There were a few items I just felt it easier to take over myself (big books, and random boxes).

This is what I saw while I was there.
All of my things wrapped and waiting...

Furniture that was left in my room... EEEEK

My new school! :)

So needless to say, I've got my work cut out for me!!! I can't get in until the end of July which is probably a good thing in that it forces me to enjoy my summer and take a break but it is making me feel a little overwhelmed. It will all work out though, always does! :)

I'mmmmm BAAACK

I say that in more than one way. :)

1. Time to dust off the cobwebs and get back to blogging. I do not have a legitimate excuse as to why I have been MIA this school year. My class was FAB, first grade was marvelous, life was good. Just blogging was not my number 1 priority! I wanted to focus on learning the curriculum this year rather than be all over pinterest or blog stalking... which is silly, i know. I did still do some stalking, just not as much in years past! :)

2. I am moving back to Kindergarten! So a) my blog name applies to what I am doing again and b) back to my old "stomping ground" if you will. Now, don't get me wrong. I absolutely LOVED first grade but there were also things I desperately missed about kindergarten. So, this is a bitter sweet move for sure... excited to get back to the amazing parts of kinder though and flash forward through the first 2-3 months of school  and see those sweet babies on the first day of school!!

Not only am I moving back to kindergarten but I am also moving to a new school. This has been a change I have been craving for quite some time. I am so incredibly excited for a new adventure next year, new community, new coworkers, the whole shebang. It was for sure an emotional exit leaving the place I found myself as an educator and have spent the last 7 years of my life, but it's a great change! :)

I am excited for a new year and lots of new things I want to put in place in my classroom such as Daily Five & Guided Math. I will be sharing more about that later. I first must survive Summer School! :(

Stay Tuned...
