New Teacher Orientation!!

Oh my has this week been exciting!!! I started new teacher orientation this past Monday and finished today! I have met some really wonderful people in the district and on my campus! Today I met with my mentor teacher and she is just sly of FABULOUS! I'm really in a great district with very helpful and willing teachers, which is EXACTLY where I need to be starting my first year of teaching! I finally go into my room...yes FINALLY!! BUT I couldn't really do too much because it hadn't been cleaned yet. So hopefully tomorrow morning it will get cleaned and i can get some serious work done on it! I arranged my desk and the kids' desk...but i think i will have to change the kids' desk! It's very difficult to arrange 28-30 desk in one room with space to move around! But i do really like the set up i made for my self! The back of my car is full of TEACHER goodies!! I can't wait to unload them in my room! The district gave all new employees a stipend and new teachers in general a stipend to go by supplies! Well i went to the CUTEST store possible!! It had some great things that will look awesome in my to follow!! Next week the real work start with teacher orientation and PLANNING! I can't believe school will start a week from MONDAY! AWWW! Just a titch nervous! It will be great though!

Jared and I and our friend Holly just returned from Arkansas last Sunday. We had a great time skiing, boating, jet skiing, sewing, eating, looking at my parents new house, driving A LOT of driving and a little bit of sleep in there too! We saw Laura, Tom, Clara and little William in Missouri! We had a GREAT time! I will keep saying Little William so he won't grow up on me too fast like Clara has done! that will work, right?!? Well it's my plan for now!

We also enjoyed spending time with my parents and grand parents!! My mom worked very long and hard on my curtains for my room! They are without a doubt the CUTEST at Midway...ok ok i'm a little bias! My sister also made me some great letters for my classroom with her Cricut! I bought some really cute paper at Hobby Lobby and she had some great templates which makes for FABULOUS classroom letters!! I am itching to get them all laminated and hung up! Oh so much to do!!

Well I forgot to mention about Browning....Well Browning made the trip too! It was a memorable trip for him!! On Wednesday...the first day he got to go to the lake...some how he cut open his chest! It was a traumatic day to say the least! I might have slightly panicked...but this is my baby we are talking about...any mother would!!! Well he got stitches, staples, and a drainage tube! My poor baby boy! Well the drainage tube was supposed to stay in till Monday...well that came out a little early..on Friday! Staples come out next Wednesday..hopefully! So he was in a bit of pain for the remainder of the week!! Sorry no pics...too graphic!!!

Ok well after a long 3 days of being a teacher...i'm calling it a night! I think i need a bedtime of 9 maybe 9:30! Pics to follow!!!
