It's that time of year!

I have been MIA! I've wanted to update this blog but the start of a new school year has, yet again, consumed me. I have been at school working on organizing, rearranging, planning and getting ready for another wonderful set of babies to come to my class and learn this year. I'm so excited about this coming year but I still miss my last year's group! They were the sweetest group of kiddos! I have started a blog over at www.mrshutchins.com to keep parents informed and talk about projects or other things we are working on. This is my first year to have a class blog and I am very excited about it. I hope it gets a lot of use out of it! I met my kiddos last night at Meet the Teacher and they were dolls! It is going to be a great year. *I still need to back track and post about a few more things from the summer so I will be doing that soon. But for now, I wanted to share with you pictures from my classroom (that are also, of course, on my class blog!) You may see a few things overlap here and there but I will be back over here again soon, after things slow down a bit! :)

This first picture is my favorite! Hubs took it with his phone using an app he downloaded that takes panoramic pictures. You can click the image to view it larger and see my entire classroom!

Here's the view from the front door. *So many baskets to hold supplies from Meet the Teacher Night!


Their little desks...

My front wall. I had a welcome message and to do list displayed on my screen.

This is the back wall. I have a chore chart on the bookshelf. Bucket fillers on the wall. And Celebrity Star Wall of Fame (Student of the Week) with celebrities on the window sill. I can't wait to do this with my kids! Behind the curtain is where they turn in papers and our Math Tubs are stored there also.

My class library (love) and trash baskets that we are going to use to hold our glue and then collect all of those small scraps of paper from our TLC art projects!

I will be working hard again this weekend and then school starts on Monday! Here's to another great year! :)

Anniversary Dinner

A little late but hubs and I did go out to dinner for our anniversary. We didn't do gifts or cards or anything this year. Just good ole' fashion dinner and conversation. It was the best. We went to chili's and used a coupon for a free molten chocolate cake. Yummmm. Anyway, you know I had to snap a couple of shots before we left. So, here ya go!...I love this guy...

Oh and look-y here...I carried hubs!

*That used to be easier to do...Weak-Sauce.
