Teacher Appreciation and one crazy week!

This week was certainly a LONG one, however, I am  soaking up every single moment that I have left with my kiddos!  I had to monitor our state testing (PASS) in a 5th grade classroom  this week so my kids were split up among the other 2nd grade classrooms.  I was SO happy to be back with my students on Friday.  We had our usual "Friday Morning Dance Party" to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" in honor of me going to see Michael Jackson's Cirque du Soleil on Friday night.  Always funny when someone comes down the hallway and looks in my window to see why in the world we have Michael Jackson blaring! 

And two of my sweeties brought this in for me on Friday morning.  Made my day, week... YEAR!  I felt so incredibly special!

They also gave me all of the extra candy.. which my sister and boyfriend have basically attacked!

Alright, I need to run to Target and get sand buckets... Saw them in the dollar section and I had already bought Hope King's Unit:

to give my kids some summer practice on the things we learned this year.
Gotta love the dollar section at Target!!!!!!
Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there!  Maybe someday I will be blessed enough to get to be a mother but until then, I will continue spoiling my 2nd graders! :)
