It has been a few weeks since I have said that-
Let me rephrase- it has been a few weeks since I have "typed" that!!
Let's start with the obvious folks-
WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO MY BLOG!?!?!?
Isn't she BEE-U-TA-FUL!?!?!
It isn't actually a "what" happened- it's a "who" happened
Lauren from The First Grade Diaries !
I will tell you the story-
(like you thought I wouldn't)
Once upon a time, there was a Squirrel. This nutty little Squirrel decided that she REALLY liked a particular clipart that
she had seen in a Hibernation Unit by The First Grade Diaries.
The Squirrel couldn't stop thinking about this clip art.
She loved it.
It loved her.
She could just feel it.
They were meant to be.
So the Squirrel took a chance and emailed the creator of this cutey little squirrel and asked what
Lauren thought about maybe taking that squirrel, giving her a bow, some lipstick, and a hot little dress.
She even went as far as asking what Lauren thought about a makeover for the whole blog.
I am not going to insult your intelligence by having you guess what Lauren said...
ok, she said YES!!!
And here she is ....
(Miss Squirrel, not Lauren)
But you can find Lauren by checking her out here:
I promise if don't already know her you will fall in love!
And now THIS squirrel is going to live happily ever after!!!
(And will forever be loving Lauren!!!)
So much has been going on-
I have been trying to wrap my head around this year so far.
We are full implementation of CCSS for Math and ELA-
I don't consider myself to be a seasoned teacher in the least bit. This is only year seven for me.
WHY THE HECK do I feel like a first year teacher?!?!?
CCSS is supposed to be narrow, but deep.
I get it.
But give us a little folks-
could they have made it a little broader on the ol' standard there??
I have "I CAN" statements scrolling at the bottom of all my dreams now!!!!
Trying to think of ALL the things that a firstie needs to know before I can say
"CHECK! SHE KNOWS THAT!" is insane-
I feel like I'm on a plane with no parachute,
a dive with no tank,
a climb with no gear,
you get the picture-
and for the record, I have never done any of those things- so I guess I should have said
a movie with no popcorn
a bath with no bubbles
a nap with no blankie.....
I know I can do it- (because of my wonderful bloggy support team)!
Did I tell you that I almost passed out the other day??
This is why:
I was ATTACKED BY A GIANT CAT!!!
WHO THE HECK LET THIS GUY INTO THE BUILDING?!?!?
Frame of reference? Look at the very large plant to the left!!
I went to the office and had them call a custodian!
They said "why don't you just step on it?"
I said "because this thing is big enough to eat small birds!!!"
I did not stick around to see where he was taken and if he made it out in one piece-
I am a lover of nature (in pictures- not in person)
You'll love this one-
WHO THE HECK drives the Shrek- mobile???
ME! Look at the shadow of my van....hee hee:)
And it wouldn't be a WTH Wednesday unless we checked on how folks are arriving at my nutty
little slice of cyberspace:)
We all know that you can "Put your socks and shoes in front" to get here- we don't know why,
but you can.
If you ever get lost- you may always follow the old standby- "put your hand in your sock"
(there's those darn "I CAN" statements in there too!)
Alright, I need to get to work:)
be sure to admire my beautiful self at the end of this post in the signature....
and then scroll up and grab that GAW-Geous (I'm from the South)
button that Lauren made for me, too!!!!
Have a great Thursday!!!
