I went yesterday to JoAnn's to get the fabric for my curtain and bulletin board for my Dog Theme Classroom. Even in high school, I like a theme. I have to be in that room for HOURS a day, and well, I really want it to be a happy place.

I got this fabric for my bulletin board behind my desk. I'll add a black and white polka dot ribbon and a black and white paw print ribbon to make a French Memo Board look.

 This is the fabric that will be my classroom curtain this year. My classroom is red, black, and turquoise. I'm pretty excited about it.

My other bulletin board will be black with a turquoise border. I still have to get the turquoise border. I will have an "instagram" section for school pictures throughout the year. The other will be something dog/pathway related. I haven't decided yet. I'm thinking....

I have to go back in two weeks--I'm going July 31st so that I can have August 1st off. Then I'll have a three day weekend before school starts. The kids will be back on August 7th. Eek!

So life. Yeah, that gets in the way of what I want to do sometimes.

Mark and I are still clicking along. He's in school now and not working. He's got a 3.8 GPA. Go him!

We now have 3 dogs instead of one...Boris is 8; Lucy is 5; and Angus is 2. We're busy! :)

I will start my 21st year of teaching in August. How did that happen so quickly?

The saddest part of my time away is that my very best friend, my Nana, died on January 28th. Losing her has been the most difficult thing in my life. I miss her every day. Every.single. day.
