Hey, everyone! Sorry I've been neglecting the blog world this past week, but it's been C-R-A-Z-Y! My birthday is coming up, so the hubby and I have been making plans for that. Any other August birthdays out there? Mine's on the 16th, along with Madonna's. There's your fun fact for the day! :) My sister-in-law is also expecting her first baby around that time, she there was a shower for her and my mother-in-law is coming to visit with our three nieces which means major house cleaning. Phew!
I spent a very productive day (finally) in my classroom today and I'm feeling good now about the start of school. I still have lots to do, but I've worked a lot over the summer, so I'm much farther than I was this time last year. I made my birthday bags for my students while getting caught up with Mad Men. I'm excited to be able to do cutesy stuff like that with my third graders. I forgot to take a picture, but here's what I included in my bags:
- 2 pencils (1 'Happy Birthday!' pencil and another random one)
- 2 erasers (fun-shaped ones like dollar bills and cupcakes)
- 1 packet of Mister Bubble Bath Fizzies
- 1 cute sea animal water squirter (You have to see these! They're absolutely adorable!)
- 1 homework pass
Well, I hope to be back on Monday with some pictures for Monday Made It. I'm working on rainbow-fying my mailbox and I'm halfway done!
