Well, I got my new hot pink fabric yesterday! Sadly I wasn't able to find a stripe like I wanted, but they did have this gorgeous polka dot so I was happy with that! I also got a rotary cutter (pink for breast cancer awareness) which I need to cut out my triangles for my pennant banner! The sweet cashier at JoAnn's was kind enough to let me use a 40% off coupon that wasn't supposed to be used until Sunday....and my 15% teacher discount! So, I left there tickled PINK with my two pink items! Can't wait to start on that! While I was in town, I ran in the $ Tree and was thrilled to find team caddies and some cute baskets to use for trash when the kiddos are working in their interactive science notebooks. I made some cute labels for the caddies to number them. I'm sharing them if anyone is interested. Just leave me a comment or e-mail me! (I have tried and tried to figure out how to put an image of my labels on here but nothing is working. If you have any advice....please help!) They are super cute and I wanted to show them to you all! I also got my Vista Print order in today. This one was only two items.....there are still a few things I need to order. Here is my banner (which I heart) and a notebook I made for my bills and budget at home! The last picture shows my growing mountain of school stuff! (ook closely and you can see my cat Cruella jumping from the quilt rack to the bed!)I am so ready to get it in my new classroom! I have much more still stored at the high school that I need to move to my new school as well!
I'm tired just thinking about it!
This isn't teaching related, but I had a blast watching my nephew Jake play lacrosse today! He is really good! His middle school age team won 14-10 and Jake scored 4 of those points! If you've never watched lacrosse, it is really fun. I would probably end up in a fight though with people trying to steal the ball from me and hitting me with their stick!!! LOL! Here's a pic of him....he's a cutie under the helmet and pads...:)
Before I go, I want to give a shout-out to a couple of awesome ladies....Kathy from Kathy's Coordinated Class is giving away a $20 gift certificate to TPT....WOW!
