can you help me put my socks on?

I've got 8 weeks to go and then....newborn time! We're just pluggin along and awaiting baby #2...I'll be sure to keep you all posted when it gets closer :)

Our desks have been jam packed for the last couple of years. We have been using Math in Focus for 2 years now, which includes 2 books per student (a workbook and textbook), and we switched from Storytown to Reading Wonders this year, which includes a whopping 3 books per student! And because I'm not about to waste any of my own cabinet/cupboard/shelf space to store things like this, we had to figure out a way to fit it all in a desk. So...this well help keep the desk fairy happy!

I made these visual direction cards to help list the steps after giving them verbally. I HATE repeating myself #teacherproblems and love being able to point to the board anytime. You can find these here. 

Every so often, I get an email from Shutterfly with a special code for FREE stuff! I just have to pay shipping (about $5) and that's it! I ordered some thank you cards to use this year :)

Cheeks popped in with my mom the same day we had school photos being taken. So...of course he got his taken since he's not camera shy AT ALL :) He flirted with the camera lady the whole time haha!



  1. Congratulations on Baby #2!!! SO exciting! Cheeks picture is PRECIOUS! I just wanted to stop by and say hi! :)

  2. Oh my gosh it should be Cheek's picture. duh!!! ;)

  3. Congrats on baby #2! I have 2 littles as well but my girl is the oldest and my boy the far! Mine are 3 and a half years apart. How far apart will yours be? Cheek's picture is adorable! How fun for him! Your clipart is adorable. I know exactly what you mean about the clean desk struggle. My last 5 years of teaching I was in a portable which meant limited storage space. I had picture cues up as well for what a clean desk looks like. Then I had to have clean desk helpers to help my poor littles who tried, but just needed a little extra support. Better from a friend, than me. :) Happy Friday!
