I think that teachers experience something similar to nesting as summer begins to wind down. This nesting sensation has hit me hard and I'm ready to get my classroom organized, my classroom management plan improved, my plans set up and start teaching third graders!

I spent a good bit of time this afternoon on pinterest (because how else do teacher's get ideas these days?!?) and stumbled across the most helpful blog. I think I downloaded and printed almost every one of her freebies this afternoon.

I have so many fantastic ideas running through my head... Now I just have to get in the classroom and hash them out.

Despite being ready to get back in the classroom, I'm trying to make the most of the last few weeks of summer with my kids. We've visited family in New Orleans, we're heading to Alabama to spend a few days in the country with more family.  And we've been spending every moment that isn't raining at the pool or the beach! If you hate that you're missing out on all that excitement, you can tag along via Instagram. ;)

Yesterday was one of those days where we managed to squeeze in an hour or so of rain-free beach time, then we got cleaned up and went to Sweet Frog for frozen yogurt. There's not a thing in the world that makes my kids happier than frozen yogurt, topped with an odd assortment of strawberries, gummy worms, m&ms and fluffy whip.

Yikes! All this talk of setting up it really THAT close to the end of summer already?!

I need to get cracking on that too!

Love the use of the chambray/denim top, I love tying mine like that over dresses!

The closer we get to August, the more it feels like summer is slipping away!

I'm not nesting, I'm in total denial. We do home visits in my district to our home room kids and I need to call to set up times today, totally dragging my feet. I love my job.....I'm just not ready to go back.

So cute! I love the pop of color with your sandals.

Our summer seems to be flying by so fast and it doesn't feel like we have done anything. School starts in less than a month already, boo!

Inge Jane said...

I definitely feel the same way about getting back into my classroom. Unfortunately our district doesnt even let us start coming back into the buildings until 2 weeks before school starts. So I'm on pinterest a lot too =)
