So apparently I thought I published this post at the end of June but shocker, I didn't. Here is June in a nutshell! I know, I know...you have been dying to know what I do every waking minute of my boring days. Haha!
A week after school let out I headed to the TOTS for technology conference with a few teachers from school, my principal and vice principal. It was kinda fun to attend a conference without having to present. Though my mind immediately goes to applying to present next year and things the conference needs to be better lol. I did learn some pretty cool technology tips. I'm most excited about trying to "flip my classroom" next year. More on that later.
One night we went to Pleasure Pier. I kept calling it Pleasure Island haha. I kept telling my principal I wanted to go to Pleasure Island. Haha. Hey, she knew what she was getting into when she said I could go. We had a lot of fun. If was great to be among a forward thinking peers, excited about the future of our school.
Oh and I stupidly said I would go on the Ferris wheel. What was I thinking? I love rides and roller coasters but I'm terrified of heights. I wanted to crap my pants. My friends thought it was funny to rock it. I had to keep it rated G because my administrators' daughters were on the ride. I did say a few Dear sweet baby Jesus's. :) You can see by my hair that it was REALLY windy. I now have less friends. Haha. J/K. Maybe.
Next stop, Louisiana. The next week I took my kids and a friend on a super-fast road trip. I promised my kids that we could take a road trip if I got a new car and since I am now sporting Bruce (He’s BATMAN..cue in low voice here), I had to keep my word. Our window of opportunity was limited so when I say super-fast trip, I mean it.
We left Wednesday morning and came back Friday afternoon. I think we drove 800+ miles in those three days. We went on an alligator tour, which was really fun. Then we made our way up to West Monroe to visit the Duck Dynasty business. On our way home, we stopped and visited an alligator farm and got to hold one. Eek! Here are some pics of our adventure.
It was way fun and the kids got their road trip in. Surely I get mom points for that. :) I can't believe has fast this summer is flying. Please, for the love of Pete, slowwwww down! I think I will go into my classroom tomorrow and work. Sigh. Yes, I said it out loud so that makes it a real and true thought. Yikes!
If you are getting ready for school like me, you might appreciate a good deal. I am having a sale in my store for the next two days. Everything is 20% off! Click here to head over there.
Now, that I have officially published a post from JUNE (shaking my head), I will be back this week with more current information. Haha!
Love and virtual hugs
