Changes are a-comin'!

I have some news... actually LOTS of news...
First up, I'm leaving my school. I'm also changing grades...I'm moving down to FIRST grade! EEK!  That park scares me a little bit, I'm not going to lie. ha! But, also leaving my school scares me. I've called Turner home for 10 years of my 11 years of teaching. It's bittersweet to leave. I will miss a lot of my friends there...people who I've known for the last 10 years.  But I'm so excited to be starting this new chapter of my teaching career. It'll be a whole new world to me.
Don't worry! I'm going to finish my 2nd grade Common Core monthly centers... I'm going to be doing August through December this month. I wouldn't forget my 2nd grade friends!!
Anyway, so I've been doing a lot of purging... and packing....
I've already taken 8 large tubs to a storage unit... and I've packed up ONE of my filing cabinets...


The other filing cabinet will take probably 8-10 boxes because it is SO jammed packed, I can't even get things out of it! lol

I've also been PURGING!! This is only the pile I had after one hour of purging... I have TONS more... I sent an email out to my school telling them to come grab what they wanted... the rest was going to go in the trash! Yep... I'm one of those... I don't have the time or patience to sell things. Just want to be DONE! lol



And here's the OTHER big news!!!!


Come on over to my Splash of Life Blog to read all about our new adventures...time to be a butterfly!!

So exciting! Congrats!! I love purging too, and have been going through so much of my stuff this year to try and eliminate my teacher area, and make more room for the kids!!

Congratulations Jennifer!! Seems like it was just yesterday we were waiting on Baby B. And you were out RUNNING like the day after she came! Ok maybe not a day after...but not long. You will love first grade. I asked to go to second this year, but was told he wanted me to stay in first. Good thing I love first so much. Happy your parents are coming home, everyone needs their momma close.
Happiest of summers to you!

So happy, thrilled and excited for you friend!

I trash stuff all the time, too. "Take it if you want it - otherwise it's going in the trash" is a common motto of mine!

Just packed up my room. Thankfully, I'm not moving up, or down just around. I had to move classrooms. That's super cool cause I like to purge every now and then. Here's to a successful move, transition and arrival of baby "C".
