Catch Up: Part 1

I'm going to try and catch you up this week on what has been happening in my crazy and busy life. It is finally calming down...kind of. Today, starts the first day of my summer job, which I LOVE! I'm a nanny again to the same sweet girls I was a nanny for last summer. We had a blast last summer and I can't wait to spend another fun summer with them.

First, I want to tell you about our last week of school. I went on a Field Trip with the 3rd graders to a place called Imagination Station. It's an awesome place that is full of fun science things for kids. They loved it and I had so much fun there too. I remember going there on a field trip when I was in 4th grade. They have this thing called "The Crooked House". You go in and the house is so crooked your body looks like it's at an angle because it's tilted so much you almost fall. I actually fell in the crooked house and cut my knee when I was in 4th grade. I've hated that thing ever since, so I let my students go in, but I passed on that. Ha!

We also had Field Day for the students. It looked like so much fun I wanted to join. I ended up doing the three legged race with a girl who didn't have a partner. It was a blast!

The last day of school was bittersweet because I knew the fifth graders wouldn't be at our school anymore, but I knew all of the students were excited for summer vacation.

I had to show my school spirit and wear blue and gold on the last day of school!!

Striped Dress from Target for $29.99.
Yellow Belt from Amazon for $7.75.
White Sandals from TJ Maxx similar to these for $7.66.

Here are my gifts to the students! I have quite a few students and this seemed like a cheap, but still cute idea!

Wally was so sweet and got me roses and a card to congratulate me on finishing my first year of teaching. He's a keeper!!

I hope you all enjoyed the last day of school with your students!! I also hope you are enjoying the start of your summer!!

  4. The end of the year is so bittersweet! It's full of fun activities and summer is right around the corner, but there's a lot of goodbyes. It's always hard for me to say goodbye to my 8th graders too! Love your school spirit dress =)
