It was a crazy, busy first FULL week back in school. I've got 34 very chatty personalities who bound through my door every morning. They. Wear. Me. Out. I didn't have time to catch my breath let alone take many pictures this week, but here are a few...
I came home to a 70 pound Pottery Barn box on my front porch this week and immediately set to putting together this bookcase. I bought the baskets at the Container Store and have been waiting for over a month for the bookcase to come. So excited!
Alright, that brings me to my errand filled Saturday. This was the highlight. Have you heard about petsintheclassroom.org? If you've been wanting a classroom pet, you have to go check it out. All you have to do is fill out an online application, answer a few questions, choose a classroom pet, and they'll send you a coupon for a free habitat (depending on the type of animal you choose) and a couple of other coupons for a discount on the animal, food, and necessary supplies. I submitted an application for funding last month and received my letter of approval and coupons this week. I'm now the proud owner of a FREE 10 gallon deluxe aquarium ($70 value!) and a yet unnamed betta fish. I'll be setting it up in the classroom on Monday. The kids are going to love it! It's been awhile since I've had anything alive in the room. In the past I've had quite a zoo with rats, bearded dragons, boa constrictors, leopard geckos, a tarantula named Bob, king snakes, and hamsters. I've been wanting another class pet for awhile now and this made the decision easy! Go check out the website.
Okay, that's my week. It's not officially midnight here so this still counts as SATURDAY Snapshots, not Sunday. I'm hopping over to Miss Nelson's to see what everyone else has been up to...in the morning. For now, I'm off to find my pillow!
