Excitement is in the air...

Or at least around me and any other newish teacher, it is. It's that time of year when we start spending more time in our classrooms and start getting all kinds of excited about the upcoming school year! Or, if you wish summer lasted just a bit longer, then I guess it's that time of year when you are trying to deny that school starts in a few weeks and the only thing in the air around you is the sound of your sobs as you come to grips with the end of summer.

Okay, all that being said to say that I've been spending the week in my classroom . . . with my kids. And you know what? They've actually been quite the little helpers. Yep, they've distributed textbooks, held open doors and just generally entertained anyone who was in a 300-yard radius of their lovely voices.  And my classroom is shaping up, if I must say so myself.

Thanks to Third Grade Thoughts, I have a behavior management plan that I think will be successful, 7 habits of happy kids that I plan to implement on Day One, some excellent classroom rules, formative assessment bookmarks... Yeah, pretty much, this teacher and her cute blog are going to make me successful this year. ;)

Now while I've been busy hanging up posters, printing signs, distributing textbooks and organizing my classroom... this is what I wore. Or something similar. No fancy pants going on over here these days...

When my hair starts to get to this length, I think it looks so much better at an angle. Maybe I should just walk around looking down at my feet until it grows enough that I can cut it like this.

Cute mismatched socks: Target

I have to spend a bit more time at the school tomorrow morning, but I plan to spend the entire afternoon and all day on Friday simply enjoying my last few days of summer break. While I'm incredibly excited to begin my second year teaching, I also want to soak up these special days with my babies!

Linking up today with The Pleated Poppy, Transatlantic Blonde, Rolled Up Pretty, Wardrobe Wednesday, Because Shanna Said So, Mix & Match Fashion, and Three-fer Thursday with Perfectly Coutured and Everyday Fashion and Finance. Go check 'em out for all kinds of inspiration. =)
