Time...ISN'T on my side!!

Does anyone else feel the anxiety building over the beginning of a new school year? I LOVE the beginning of school, but it seems that there are SO many projects I want to do, yet I blink and time is gone. I have 19 days left before the first official teacher's day back and we have a whole week to work in our classrooms attend professional developments. :( We are blessed in our county to be able to leave everything in our classrooms and go in anytime we want over the Summer. I have finished the cosmetic part of my room, now it's just picking up and putting down and planning, planning, planning. I WILL FINISH!!!

On a lighter note, I have linked up with Covered in Glitter and Glue for the Back to School Blogger Exchange where I have been on a shopping spree for my mystery blog partner. I am so excited about this link up and can't wait to send my package. I wish we could implant a camera in the box to snap a picture of the blog partner's face when they open their goodies. I was so excited about what I purchased for my blog partner, I purchased some of the same stuff for my own classroom (insert embarrassed face here).

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday. :)


  1. Hi~ I just wanted to let you know that I was your Blogger Exchange buddy and I just sent your package today. I was told that it would arrive on Friday or Saturday. I hope that you enjoy it because I had tons of fun hunting for little treasures for you. :) Have a great year!

    Ps...Michaels had a ton of cute owl things that I found after I had sent the box. Of course that would happen! :(
