Since I didn't find out until school was already out that I got my new job, most of the stuff in my classroom ended up in my garage. It was a MESS, you could hardly walk around in there. I forgot to take a picture, but believe me, it wasn't a pretty sight. At first I was just going to take the boxes up to my new room when I can get into the school, but then I realized that some of those boxes have 1st grade stuff. So I started the unpleasant and very mess making task of going through all of the boxes.
I'm not finished, but this is after I sort of cleaned up! HA As you can see, I've got a lot to do!
These are first grade things I am giving to some homeschooling friends.
These are the homeschooling backpacks I made up to loan out to friends.
I signed my contract this week!
I've been working on some things for school. Our theme for the beginning of the year is "Our Future's So Bright". Here is a peek at my Monday Made It for next week. Hopefully it will turn out the way I am envisioning it will!
I'm not going to be able to do much with my color scheme other than paint, but I did get some sheers for the six windows. I then tired to get a color that was several shades lighter for the walls and the red is for two cabinets. Here's what I have tentatively picked out for my room colors. I can't get into the room until July 30 so there's plenty of time for me to changed my mind! LOL
We are still having a mouse problem!!! Don't worry, I have no pictures for this one. I think it is partly due to the city converting a foresty type field close to my house to a dog park. The neighbor next door said they are having problems too. I don't like seeing a mouse in the house, but I have an even bigger problem with a dead mouse in the house. I can't even bring myself to look at it! I have had to pay my daughter to take them out to the trash. (I know it's crazy, but I really just can't do it!) We tried some of those glue traps...disgusting. I had to pay her $10 instead of $5 because the mouse was still alive. We had to have the neighbor take care of one because Delaney said it was barely stuck on the trap and she was afraid it would come off when she picked it up, plus she said it had beady red eyes (I don't know, because I refused to look at it). Anyway, the other day I left her at home for just a little bit so I could return my laptop to my old district. she called me and said I needed to come and pick her up. She wanted something to eat so she got the box of Slim Jims down and found a dead mouse in it! So now we are going to scour the house and look for any little hole where they might be coming into the house. I have also set out the trays with poison in the house, garage and attic. I've watched so many HGTV shows that I am worried that they have been up in the attic chewing on all of the electrical wiring.
