Grandma's Plant

This is a hibiscus plant Grandma Mahaltic had at her house. I brought it to my house and didn't think it would bloom. We'll look at it now! She'd be proud!

I forgot to post these pictures of Scott and I in Kerrville a couple weeks ago. This is when Honey was still an only child :)

Little Helper

Sky insist on helping me when I'm on the computer...

My Classroom

Here's my classroom before all 29 of my kids come!
I had to move the desk so they don't look like the picture anymore.

And of course, I LOVE this little poster and had to get it!

This week has been CRAZY busy and i feel like there is never enough time in the day. I have been overwhelmed by soo much information! Teaching is not just teaching, there is SO much paperwork and procedures that it's CRAZY!!
I've got my first lesson plans due and Meet the Teacher Friday! I am by NO means ready! Please say a little prayer for me! I am over in my classroom and feeling the stress. The max students you should have is 22 and I've got 27! Hopefully we can get another 3rd grade teacher.

We've Adopted!

We've adopted another Jack Russell Pup! It's actually a trial run to see how Honey and her get along but everything has been going really good so far! Her name is Skylar, and sometimes we call her Sky. She's a sweet baby and only has 3 legs!

Honey has been a little jealous but I think she's getting better. We've only had one little fight between the two and Sky has ran off from us two times so we're hoping that gets better.
We'll see what happens but here are a few pictures!

I think they really look alike. Above is Sky, below is Honey!

Today was my first official day for Tomball ISD. We have mandatory training meetings all week which amounts to lots boring meetings. Next week we'll be at our home campus more but I still have so much to do in my classroom. Not sure what I'm supposed to have/do in my classroom but I need more so I'm not posting pictures yet. I'm feeling the pressure and just nervous about the kids starting because I feel like I have no idea what to do!

This past weekend Scott and I went to Kerrville. We haven't been there all summer and I figured it would be my last Friday off so we left on Friday and were back Sunday. It was a short but relaxing trip. Oh how I miss the hill country.
I took pictures but haven't downloaded them yet. Honey was a little warrior princess and chased a huge herd of Axis deer. It was so cute seeing her with all the deer (there was maybe 100!). I think one even kicked her because she came back with a sore in her ear! Don't worry, she didn't even care!

Paint the Wall Red

In my bedroom, there was an accent wall painted red. I really don't mind accent walls and I decided to keep it but I needed to do a little re-vamping. It was an "orangy" red and I wanted a darker softer red. So, I did some repainting and I think it looks great. Thank goodness it was already red so it only needed one coat of the new red. Anyone that has painted with "red" knows that it is NO fun!

Once I get the room totally decorated I'll post more pics, but here's some of the red wall.

BEFORE: (you can see to the left of the picture where I practiced with my new red)
AFTER: (there is a difference and I like it)

My Classroom

So I was able to go to my classroom this week to get organized and start decorating. This is the blank pallet I walked into on Wednesday. So sad...

Just wait and see what it will become. You'll see what all the "buzz" is about!
