And then it was May...


Where did all that time go since my last post?

I have been officially back at work since March 11 and wishing I could be at home with my babies but glad to be back with my kiddos in the classroom at the same time. I did miss them for the most part. It was an interesting transition back into the classroom because my students decided they needed to "test" me and see what they could get away with. They have since learned that the answer is not much and that I haven't changed a bit (except for the missing baby belly!). They really, really want to meet The Boy but I told them they were too germ infested for now. I am planning on introducing them at the end of the school year.

We just started testing and so the last couple of weeks have been a crazy whirlwind of review and such. (It was also fun trying to figure out what my sub covered and what she didn't. She is an excellent sub and did an amazing job but I wouldn't voluntarily miss the middle of the school year again!)

So now I'm getting back on the Currently train with Farley @ Oh Boy Fourth Grade

My bucket list is pretty easy - at least I hope so! I love being in the pool and I live in So Cal so there's really no good reason not to be at the beach! I am praying my baby boy sleeps better soon because I am seriously sleep deprived! My DD never had any trouble sleeping so it's new territory that my almost 5 month old is still waking up every three hours! 

In class we just started our unit on Ancient Rome and I have a mega awesome project I do every year that encompasses the entire Roman world with very little effort from me. The kids love it and it keeps them on their toes until the end of the year since they often think they're d-o-n-e when testing is over! Watch for the next post for more info!

I could definitely use a good night's rest too! The end of the year testing (& the kids in general) wipe me out!

That reminds me. I need to clean out my pool..... :)

Congrats on the baby boy. My youngest is 19 so I'm listening to silence too (only because I muted Duck Dynast for a minute!).

Can't wait to hear about your Roman project. My history is US history, but I bet I can use in some way. :)
