Why Hello Summer!

Man, it has been a crazy couple of weeks. Did anyone else hear that beautiful noise yesterday around 2:30.  That was the angels singing.  The school year is over. (Well I still have 3 workdays of cleaning, paperwork and prof. development.  I'm trying to ignore that fact though.)

I'm hoping that now I can get caught up on my 1000+ blog posts on Google Reader, spend some time by the pool and just relax!


I was going to post pictures from what we have been up to in my class over the past two weeks, but I realized I took hardly any.  The ones I did take are on my camera at school.  I'm not lying, the end of this year was c-razy. 

We partied, we gamed, we created, we played, we ate.  Lots of fun. 

I am really going to miss my class, it was truly a great year. So many great things happened.  I was Teacher of the Year. I started blogging.  Pinterest and blogging changed my entire teaching style.  This is the first year I felt truly comfortable in the classroom!


On to other things...

Today, my little brother graduated from high school! It's crazy! It makes me feel old...

I'm pretty sure we could pass for twins. 

Well, you guys know how I like to celebrate...
Everything is on sale until Wednesday! 

Plus, why not have a giveaway too?  I just love some rafflecopter! One person will win $25 worth of items from my shop. Two people will win $10!  It will end Wednesday!

Be sure to check out my Pinterest Inspired Linky party too!  Thanks to those that have already linked up!

Mark asked me, "Do you want to go out?"

That was a no. I'm exhausted.  I'm going to spend my evening catching up on some of my favorite blogs. Have a great weekend! :)

  8. My sister is graduating from high school next Sunday... and it does make you feel old! I can remember when she was so tiny, and it's hard to believe that she'll be going off to college in the fall!

  29. I'll be teaching all summer, but since my year officially ended on May 7th, it's not such a bad gig! The best part is that I get to teach teachers, and I learn just as much from them as they do from me. So, I'm looking forward to their end of school as much as they are, because that's when the fun begins!

    I also have a Utah trip planned at my parent's summer cabin.

  35. I would love to tell you that I have amazing summer plans, but to be honest, I will be working on a lot of school projects and scrapbooking when I'm not enjoying every last minute with my little one. I'll be blogging about the projects I finish.
