AWOL but for a good reason!

Hi everyone,

Well, we are finally out of school for the summer!!!  I have been busy the past couple of weeks with the end of school, and the past week, my son has been involved with baseball playoffs.  It all ended Saturday with the Championship game.  Yes, they won!!!  It was a very stressful week for me (nervous Nellie), but it was worth it in the end! 

This is his Championship trophy.  He also got a team trophy, so he is on cloud 9!

Other than baseball and the end of school, I found out that I have to change classrooms again.  I am moving back into the classroom into 2nd grade, but I am already on the 2nd grade hall.  I was a bit overwhelmed when my principal told me I had to move.  We also have Summer School at my school this year, so that made it all a bit more stressful.  I didn't know when I would get my stuff moved, and plan for a whole new curriculum.  She worked hard, listened to me and my worries concerns, and was able to leave my rooms (new and old) available to me during Summer School.  No class will be held in it.  YaY!  Another stresser (I know it is not a word, but work with me) was we leave for the beach the 24th of June, and upon our return on the 1st of July, we  will turn around and go to TN (on the 2nd) to visit my family for 2 weeks (back July 12).  (a lovely 750 mile drive....12 hours or so with a 7 yr old).  Summer school begins July 9, and I was concerned I would not be able to get all my room moved and set up for summer school.  BUT, it has all worked out in the end.  I am busy moving my things this week, and hope to have it all moved by Thursday. 

Changing classrooms the past 3 years, I have purged quite a bit, but I still have 24 years of stuff, and even more stuff now that I blog, find freebies,  and get wonderful things from TPT and Teacher's Notebook!!! 

Okay, I am rambling now!  When life slows a bit, I will be back to making things for freebies and to sell in my TPT store.  Have a wonderful summer, and I will be around in a few weeks!
