Spring Break already?!?

Did Spring Break start today and nobody told me??? I checked my calendar and my Spring Break officially begins Thursday at 2:30 p.m. When I picked up my class this morning from the playground, I was surprised to see just a few kids. I thought they still must be coming off the I waited. A few minutes later, only 19 kids in line, out of a total of 32. Too good to be true right? A few latecomers came and I was up to 24 and that's where it stayed...for the rest of the day. It was amazing what I could do with that small group. The noise level was at an all time low. We got so much done. Gosh, how I miss 20 - 1! But, I do have to say, all my naughties were there on time, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. They must have THE BEST immune systems in the universe to have not missed ONE. SINGLE. DAY. YET. 

I'm looking forward to this week to be over so I can enjoy some time off from the crazy days of school. I'm out of the classroom tomorrow for my 4th day of Common Core training. I've gotten pulled out of my classroom once a week for the past month to take part in it. It's been a mixed blessing. I have had a student teacher since the end of January, who will be with me until the end of the school year. So I am planning and preparing for her 2 week take over which will happen right after Spring Break. I'm trying to plan what I will do with myself when I am out the classroom for those 2 weeks. I'm the type of girl who makes HUGE plans and has great expectations of all the millions of things I will get accomplished...but then about 3 things actually get done. Haha! We'll see! I'll let you know what actually happens. :)

For all of you on Spring Break, keep enjoying it! And leave some FUN left for me!! Only 3 more days! Woohoo!

2 Truths & a Lie Revealed

This was a fun Linky Party! I have to admit that I had a really hard time figuring out some of the truths and lies that I read on other blogs. 

So here's the answer to mine...#3 was the lie! It wasn't my mom that I taught next door to but my sister, Christa! We had a lot of fun and I learned so much from the experience. She moved to a new city and school about 5 years ago. If you haven't checked out her blog, Sweet Life of Second Grade, stop on by and say HI!

Let's Get Aquainted Linky Party!

What better way to get back into the blogging spirit than to take part in a linky party! Yay!! So Latoya's theme this week is "2 truths and a lie". Love it! Even though I'm probably the WORST liar EVER...I'm jumpin' in on this! haha!

So, here goes...
1. I met my husband when we were 9 years old. We used to dare   
    each other to do flips off the high dive.

2. I teach at the same school with my best friend, who also lived  
    across the street from me growing up.

3. Before my mom retired from teaching, I taught 2nd grade with 
    her in the room right next door!

Leave a comment below if you know my lie. My answer will come in my next post. (I promise it won't be 2 months from now!) Don't forget to link up so we can get to know you too! :)
