This was me when I was told I would get to move back to Kindergarten.
Since I am now definitely on Team Kindergarten I also got to discuss the new theme for next year. The Transitional-First grade teacher is going in with us on a "Where The Wild Things Are" theme for our classrooms - including plywood cutouts of the characters and trees to line the hallway! Now I just have to be sweet to my husband so he'll agree to make us some neat stuff! He's very creative and likes to use his airbrush, so hopefully I won't have to bribe him with too much - a couple Oreo Blasts maybe lol!
By the way, my classroom was cleared, my records put up and lesson plan book turned in by 4pm! That is an amazing first for me - usually I am still standing in the middle of a mess while everyone else is driving away for the summer! Not sure how I did it, but I actually got everything packed and cleaned with time to spare this year. Maybe I'm learning!
Now I just have to unload my car and start organizing everything I brought home with me. On Saturday. I told my husband that I was sorry, but tomorrow is going to be my Lazy Day - pajamas, TV, computer games, and Hazelnut coffee. I'll tackle the housekeeping and teacher-stuff-organizing starting on Saturday thank you very much - I need a day off first!
Speaking of time off, I can't wait to start creating some new stuff for Kindergarten! I'm going to be working on Nursery rhymes at first, and of course "Where The Wild Things Are". But I need a plan for after that. Any suggestions?
Oh! And just because I've lost a lot of sleep over this, I made an award for someone. You see, when I heard she hadn't been given an award for the amazing bubble blowing that she did, it really hurt my heart. Golly gee willikers, it's unfair! When someone puts in that kind of time and dedication to a craft, there should be some type of recognition! Since her school didn't see fit to reward her, I decided to create an award for her. Thus, without further ado, I hereby present Miss Squirrels with the "Most Amazing Bubble Blower Award" :

There, all is right with the world once more! Alright, I'm off to get a headstart on my Lazy Day by lounging in bed and catching up on all the shows I wasn't able to watch this crazy week. If you're not out for the summer yet, hang in there!
