Who am I kidding? I will.
Monday: Dinner with Friends (fun times and good food!)
Tuesday: Dave Ramsey Financial Class (I elect not to put anything here in paranthesis for fear you will get the wrong idea and not take this class seriously. Money is serious business. I just don't find it interesting. So, again, I elect not to put anything in paranthesis. How'd I do?)
Wednesday: Bible Study (because someone's kids had soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, Taekwondo, jazz, dance, art, cheer, basket weaving, lego building, homework, headache, etc. so we had to switch from Thursday to Wednesday this week)
Thursday: Wii Party in the Classroom (My teaching partner and I sell ourselves at this "thing" to earn money for the school. I bring my Wii and we have pizza and snacks AFTER SCHOOL with some kiddos. It is fun, but it's still something I have to cross off the list every year.) I just took a bubble bath to recover.
Friday: Although it's not here yet, it ALMOST is! Can you say HUNGER GAMES?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At 4:45??????????!!!!!!!!!! Already got my ticket!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I won't go into the weekend, but it's busy too.
I'm hanging in there, though. What with my TWO WEEK SPRING BREAK coming -- what what!!
So, anyway, remember how I told you that we were having some very special guests come to our school because we are up for a HUGE AWARD?
I had to change my four bulletin boards from winter to spring. It took awhile, but I did it.
Here they are for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy. I'm going to go get a Cadbury mini egg while you look. (By the way, I took these with my new 4S phone. I'm not impressed. Do I need to do something with the settings or something?)
We wrote cinquain poems about weather.
This is that small board above our cubbies. No student work is displayed.
I know. Shoot me.
We wrote about Spring.
We wrote about weather. I think. I can't remember. But I love these ducks.
I want to bring them home with me.
I was a wreck when the V.I.P.'s visited. So was my principal. It was a BIG DEAL. The district even gave us money for new landscaping and painting in preparation. I know. Where'd that money come from? My supply closet? My purse?
The special visitors came through my classroom in the morning. There was a lot of knocking leading up to that point. Even a phone call or two. We were in a tizzy.
The classroom visit went well. My kids were great.
Later that day, I had to have a sub because the special people interviewed the Leadership Team. No pressure.
"No pressure." That's what my principal said.
I alternated between foaming at the mouth, and saying too much to sitting there like a bump on a log. and not saying anything. Folks, it wasn't pretty.
We'll know in mid-April if we get the big award. The big shebang.
In the meantime, I have a lot of blogs to catch up on. As well as TV.
I don't miss Ben, but I do miss Talk About It Tuesday. My friend (hi Christina!!) wants me to have Wine About It Wednesday. And we can talk about the O.C. Housewives . . . anyone? Is it too late?
Here's the Writing Paper from all three bulletin boards if you want to grab them. :)Cinquainpptx
