Where did summer go?

I can't believe how fast summer has gone. When I made this blog, I thought I was always going to be on top of it. Life is so crazy though that the time flies. During the summer, Tyson and I have been to vegas twice. Once for the Kenny Chesney concert, and once with Tyson's family. I also went to California with my family for my cousin's wedding. I forgot how much I enjoyed the beach. It was so fun jumping in the waves. While I was in California, Tyson sent me this video of Jeter.

School is starting up soon and I still feel like there is so much to get done for my first grade classroom. It has been fun decorating my classroom and meeting with my team to plan the year. My mom did remind me the other day of something. She said, "remember, they are only first graders. You could have four or five crying all at once the first day!" I didn't experience that last year with my fourth graders. This year will probably be quite an experience. I am so excited though and can't wait to meet my class.
I am always on the internet trying to find ideas for first grade. I came across these cute crayons that you can make for the students to take home and eat. They are just pretzels dipped in chocolate and wrapped in paper. They are so cute.

In all, things are going great and I really want to try to post more often! We'll see how it goes when I start first grade! Wish me luck!


  1. Cute video of your dog. That's so funny. And those crayons are super cute! I don't know if your school has a policy about how all treats have to be store bought or not, but I thought I'd mention it just in case before you go to all the work and then the kids' parents are all weirded out by a home made treat...even if they are adorable! Have fun!

  2. Oh my gosh those crayons are so cute! You will be such a cute 1st grade teacher!!! good luck!

  3. I love those crayons!!! I hope you makes some and tell me if it was easy or not. I am guessing it is white chocolate right? Good luck with the new class. How fun!! I think first grade was one of my favorite grades while in elementary. You seriously will make such a cute teacher!
