New Room

After completion of the Early Childhood building, the elementary building is shuffling around now. That shuffle included me, too. So, as the shuffling has been taking place, they have been replacing our old carpet with tiled floors. All was finished and waxed on Thursday, so I began the move. I haved continued to work on it over the past three days!! AHH!! I have put together 4 tall bookshelves, 2 small bookcases, two computer desks, plus moving all of my things in. My back and some unknown places :0 have been hurting every evening! Last night I even took a hot bath, which is very unusual for me!!!! I still have quite a few things to put up on the wall and a bulletin board to finish during the week next week. Thi kids are going to be sooo excited Monday morning!! That is good and bad, if you know what I mean?!
School was canceled unexpectedly Friday due to an aggressive stomach virus that left 62 children absent from Pre-K to 5th grade. As the day progressed, we were still continuing to send more children home vomiting. We managed to AVOID it here at our house, luckily!!!!!

These tall bookshelves seperate my class from the next. Our school is an open-concept school, only partial walls throughout the entire grade 1-5 building.

This is the "Island", my carpet area where we meet every morning and often other times of the day, too. I love this part of my room!!
