I am a big time blogging bum.

I have not blogged for real in what seems like forever. I just don't seem to have ANY extra time. I'm going crazy.

So much has happened!
First: I only have 12.5 more days. I am very jealous of all of you who are done this week. My kids brains have checked out already for sure and I'm very close to losing my mind.

Second: I got class pets. Yes I did. We are now the proud owner of two hermit crabs. The students named them Poptart and Spiderman. I may have rigged their voting after they came up with the list of names. I just couldn't have crabs named Money and Crystal-call me whatever you would like I couldn't deal with that.

Third: I learned that the BEST way to get my students to be still and quiet is to tell them to lay on their stomachs in a circle and put the crabs in the middle. If the kids move or get loud the crabs don't come out. Works like a charm every time! I love it!

Fourth: The words "end of the year checklist" are terrible. They include stress, loss of sleep and many extra hours.

Fifth: I got student 25. ugh. That is TOO many! 

I have been keeping up on blogs just not writing. I read them on my phone now-FANTASTIC! But it's harder to write posts on there.

I hope to have some news to share with you all in the next month. But for now I just have to make you wait-mostly because I don't really have the information yet. All  I can say is that my fingers and toes are crossed.

In packing up my stuff (which I started today) I am VERY excited to try a new method of organization. I just hope it works for me.

Enjoy these last days of school. I have a feeling that on that last day my car ride home will make it necessary for me to wear sunglasses the rest of the day.

Have a great 3 day weekend all of you who are still in school!

I agree, end of the year checklists are no fun!! Love the idea of using the hermit crabs to keep your kids quiet!

So true that 25 is WAY too many! Luckily you don't have much longer. I am your newest follower thanks to Laura at Kinder Kraziness.
