Lovin' Summer and a Freebie :)

Hello friends, I hope you are having a great week :) I spent a few hours at school yesterday for the first time since I turned in my keys. My teaching buddy and I sorted out literally hundreds of big books into categories. We have her collection that she has compiled over 20 years of teaching, plus the leftovers from 5 former reading series, plus random piles that people have dropped off in my room over my first few years of teaching. It was A LOT of books. And up until now they have been just piled into the big book shelves, unorganized and mostly unused because we could never find what we needed. Well NO MORE people. We pulled them all out, sorted them, and reshelved them according to theme and time of year. I was so happy I almost cried hahaha.

After slaving away at school all day yesterday, today was much more relaxed. Slept in late, had a great lunch with a friend, and then an afternoon by the pool with my favorite kiddos. We did these awesome bubble snakes. SO. FUN.



In honor of my perfect summer day, I'm throwing a sale in my store today and tomorrow. I have lots of fun new stuff for back to school:








And there's lots more in my store...head on over and check it out :)

Finally, here's a little fall freebie for you :)

  2. These would all be great for the beginning of the year. I had to organize my big books too. I would forget I had one and so I sorted them by 9 weeks. Man, those are some amazing bubbles!
