Okay so I apologize for being MIA the last two months. I was able to get into the brand-new building the first week of August and I don't think I have taken a break since. August was full of unpacking and decorating...and then unpacking more. I LOVE my new school and my new room. My theme this year isn't really a theme. It is just polka-dot and chevron decor, but I love it.
I met my 29 fifth graders on September 3rd. The first day of school was also the day my dad went into the hospital. He was really sick for a few weeks. They ended up amputating his leg. It was a long 4 weeks and he finally got home the first week of October. He is doing great and very mobile already. October so far has been spending 3-4 nights a week visiting/helping him.
I promise to post pics of my new classroom later this week.
I am REALLY excited to be participating in my first-ever SLANT box exchange. I received my matches today and am already stalking their blogs! For more information (and to join in next month) check out: http://lessonswithcoffee.blogspot.com/p/the-slant-box.html
