summer is FLYING by in a chevron daze!

I cant believe how fast this summer is flying by!! I'm excited to meet my new kiddos but I'd like summer to slow down- just a little!
I have been so busy spending every minute with my nephew while he was here that I have had no time to blog or anything else!

Heres a few cute fun things we made for the fourth!
Yumm!! I found these marshmallows from Walmart and thought they would be so cute in a vase. Wellll of course I could only find a huge vase around the house so luckily we had crunch bars and then added some candy to the top! He had more fun eating it than making it ;)
I found this drink recipe on Pinterest (of course) and it was so easy! We called it a "fire cracker". It has cranberry juice at the bottom (I used cranapple), Sobe pina colada, and then blue gatoraid!! We also made some "adult" ones that were pretty tasty as well!

so for my lack of school motivation I did send out newsletters and my adorable postcards last week!
I sent them a little blurb about how excited I was to see them, how to get ready for the first day of school, supply list, and dates to know. Chevron had to be included...obsession?

I have already posted about this but y'all I am SO excited about my "teacher tool box" thanks to the pinterest gods.

again...chevron issues??? This is going to work great since I dont have a desk in my little bitty classroom.
I have spent hundreds on classroom supplies..havent we all? My excuse..its all on sale!! You never know when those 200+ glue sticks will come in handy.
In the midst of a Hobby Lobby trip I did find some burlap material. I knew just what I would do to it thanks to The Bubbly Blonde teacher.
A sign for my writing center! Mine is nowhere near perfect. I didnt measure/draw/think or anything! I free handed the pencils (which you can tell since they are completely different sizes). After that I painted them and hot glued them to the line. I wanted a stress free project and somehow a ruler just makes me a little OCD! I am going to use the glitter clothespins to allow my kiddos to hang their writing while in the center! Fun, fun, fun!
I then spent a few days at Edisto Beach with my amazing first grade team, seriously they are the best. We did some serious planning.
see...cant you tell? {Again, chevron issues!!}
But really does discussing pinterest finds and spelling strategies while having your toes in the sand count as planning??

To top of my last little vaca to the beach I come home to find out that I won my first giveaway from the amazing Meet Miss Parker, seriously go follow her.

comon' its fate right? chevron!

I hope I'll be able to get into my room tomorrow so that my house does not look like the middle of walmart! Hopefully, it wont be on chevron overload when I leave!
