I don't know about you but it is sooooooooo stinking HOT here!!! It literally takes lots of energy just to walk to your car and not break out into a sweat!!! I have gotten to spend a few of these sweltering days at the pool this week! Woohoo!! Sorry no pictures of me in a bathing suit on the blog ever hahaha!!

I am apart of a facebook group called Simply Kinder! It a great group of kinder teachers! Well Jennifer from Simply kinders asked us if we would like to participate in a back to school gift exchange.  She matched us all up and we would buy a few of our favorite things for our partner teacher and send it to them! I got mine this week! My box was loaded with fabulous things! I really wanted those dice, pointers and first day chalkboard from Target but couldn't find them on the ....way to many times I went!  I also LOVE this laminator!! My other one is several years old and I needed to replace it:) Donna Conway rocks at gift exchange!! Thank you again!!

 I spent several days at school again this week! I am still in denial that I start back in 9 days!!! I'm ready but not ready at the same time HA! I love all things Pete the cat and so I decided to use this as my welcome back board. I still need to add the shoes with my kiddos names on them to finish up but I love it!!

  1. I'm jealous of your giant dice! I could only find one at our Target!

  2. Wow, you got some fabulous goodies from your partner teacher. That's a great idea. It has been very hot here in Richmond for the past week or so and it is finally cooling off somewhat. Notice I didn't mention anything about school starting in a week. :-) Let's savor the days... Have a great next week!

    1. I blew up my Pete the cat clipart on my promethean board and traced him:) I used my new KG fonts to make the letters for the title! I love Pete and always do a big Pete the cat unit with my kinders at the beginning of the year! I credit Pinterest with the idea!!

  9. LOVE your Pete the Cat board!!! Amazing! Also, I totally cracked up with your picture of the Earth, Alabama, and the Sun...TRUTH. Hahaha!! It is better than cold but the struggle to not sweat is real! :) -Kristen

  10. Your Pete the Cat board looks great!!! It has been humid here! I told my family it actually felt cooler in Vegas because there is not really any humidity there. Your teacher exchange gift looks great! I love my laminator! I bought one this past school and love it! Hope you have a great weekend and are able to stay cool!!
