Number 1Time to clean and edit. I am a fairly organized person. I also have a ton, I mean a ton of teaching resources in my class (hard copies). However, I have noticed over the past couple of years that I go to those shelves fewer and fewer times each week. I am using 20% of my books 80% of the time. More and more of my resources are stored on my computer or can be found online. So I decided to open up some valuable real estate and bring some of those under used books home. I cleared off half of a bookshelf. I'm happy to be starting next year with some free surfaces.

Number 2Last day of pre k. My sweet daughter's last day of pre k was Wednesday. I'm so thankful that my school was out of session and I was able to bring her and pick her up on her last two days of preschool. I guess the countdown to kindergarten is officially on. I'm trying not to think about it.
Number 3Summer to-do lists. Are there any of us not making them right now? Every summer I plan all sorts of projects. I get to some and others are left undone. I usually feel a bit guilty for what is left undone.
Fast forward to sometime this fall, I ran across this quotation:
I'm going to keep this in mind, especially as my over ambitious summer plans take shape.
I even had this quote stamped into a cool fortune cookie necklace I found on etsy, just as a little reminder.
The search for aviator sunglasses. Over the past few weeks I have been trying to find a pair of aviator shades for this summer. I ordered my first pair of Ray-Bans. They were too big. I ordered my second pair of Ray-Bans they were too small. (Just kidding, they actually had these little rubber pieces that kept getting stuck in my hair and pulling it). I ordered my third pair, which are Kate Spade and they are just right. Thanks zappos for free shipping and free returns. I think I'm finally set.
Vacation. Our little family is just about to leave for our vacation. We are going to the Bahamas. This spring has been unusually cold and rainy. I am looking forward to some warm sunny weather. I'm hoping to break in my new shades.
I'm sure I'll post a few pics on Instagram. If you are interested you can find me @schoolisahappyplace.
Thanks so much for reading. I'm off to pack.
Have a fabulous weekend.
