Shew! Another week flew by.
Where do I begin? 
1. Bus duty adds an extra hour to the school day. In the gym.

2. Our district has grade levels meet for Teacher Academy, a whirlwind (using a timer- 2 minutes for this, 90 seconds for that) of new things to add to an already overwhelming schedule.

3. Planning for a sub because of Jury Duty. My class is especially challenging this year, but they are learning how things roll in our room.
Me: I didn't get Grand Jury.
Retired Kindergarten teacher sub: Good! She had quite a morning.

4. Sneak peek!
Thought the background would be too busy but I'm loving it! Two blocks down, ten to go.

5. Last night, we stood at our post to direct runners and walkers during our Midnight Glow Run 5K to benefit Special Olympics. Hawaiian shirts and all. Colton threw caution to the wind and held a light-up balloon despite his Latex allergy :)
The big question: 
Why do four day Holiday weeks seem so much longer than regular five day weeks?

When I was teaching (i retired a year and a half ago) we always used to say, "There's nothing like a Tuesday that feels like a Monday!" Those weeks can be tough! Love how your blocks are coming together!

I agree - the short weeks are the worst! Maybe because they try to fit 5 days work into those 4 days of school? Looks like you had a great time at the run.

In spite of all that busy stuff, your blocks turned out so cute. The dotted squares are a nice contrast background. Good going!
