Tuesdays.  Tuesdays are kind of weird. You're not totally depressed because it is Monday, but you're kinda sorta not totally into the week yet.  They're kinda blah.  But, the good blah. The no drama in the week yet blah.

This Tuesday, I find myself being really inspired.  Too tired and in summer mode to actually do anything, but totally awake enough to think about what I'll do next week. I want to take a week to go through all of my pins pinned in "need for classroom" and actually do some of them!

We got the e-mail that we can get in our classrooms on August 5th.  Thats soon friends...really soon. Now I don't HAVE to be there until August 19th, but who really waits until they HAVE to report to report? I think I'm going to make myself wait until the week of the 12th.  Thats about as risky and rebellious as I get.

In other news, my Dad made his contribution to my classroom already this year!  I have been dying for a dry erase board/easel that will also hold chart paper and prop my big books up...we have limited chalkboard space and a Smartboard doesn't cut it for me when I'm elbow deep in the scariest thing about first grade (short /e/) and we're blending our little hearts out. So, after church on Sunday Dad and I went to Staples and easeled me up!

Enjoy your Tuesday friends!  These two sure are...

Karen, I'll have pics up as soon as it's out of the box! I don't go in the school to set up until Aug 15th.
