Back To School...

Well, summer is officially over.
I headed over to my classroom today to start getting things in order for the new school year. This first week before school begins is kinda bittersweet. It's always a bit of a downer to see summer come to an end, but at the same time, it's nice to get back to work and on a regular schedule...the start of a new year is always filled with energy and excitement and it's fun to be a part of that.

I thought I'd show a pic of the quilt I made years ago that hangs in my classroom.
I love it.
I just hung it up today to symbolically ring in the new year.

Also I found these and think they are the greatest back to school snack.

I kinda want to make them for my kiddos. But being that I teach junior high school, I not only have like 180 kiddos, but also they are SOOO COOL and would probably not find edible crayons to be as cute as I do.

I remember loving the classroom when it was quiet and full of promise. And clean. And organized. And then the kids would arrive and ruin it all! Ha! I hope your year is wonderful. Or at least not terrible.
