Thank god. I'm so done with this year. It's not like my kids are bad (they're sweet, mostly) - it's just all the drama with our school that I'm totally O.V.E.R. I am completely drained of always having to deal with everything. Does anyone else think it's a little terrible that our Principal never told us Happy Teacher Appreciation Week? I'm pretty sure he either (a) hates us or (b) can't be bothered? Kinda a sad feeling, or maybe it's a man thing and he doesn't realize? Anyway. Summer vacation can't come fast enough!
2. C02 Cars
My class finishes its elective year by making C02 cars. I'm usually covered in sawdust from using woodshop tools and I make a lot of cars that are affectionally known as "doorstops." So, it's soooo wonderful when someone is creative enough to make this:
Turkey Leg! Too funny, right?
3. Up-cycling my Ugly Cabinet
I have one of those white plastic organizational crate that probably every teacher has. Mine was a hand-me-down when I moved into my class back in 2006. It's old and kinda trashed. I've debated about just throwing it away, but then I remembered this pin on Pinterest.
I couldn't paper the crate because mine had this weird handle lip thingy. So... I decided to paint the inside instead!
My original. This is ugly.
I had some acrylic paint in cute colors to use!
(almost) Final product! The yellow needs another coat of paint, but I'm quite happy with my little 40 minute in class project!
4. Saturday School
I have to go tomorrow. I absolutely DO NOT WANT TO GO. But I will. Miss OCD Teach will be there suffering too. I have a list that I have 23 kids tomorrow, which is a major improvement over the... 45 I had in April.
5. GO KINGS GO!
Game 6 tonight, baby! I will plant myself on my couch, make my next I Have... Who Has cards and watch my boys.
