New Blog, New Job, New Everything...

Heyyyyyyy Youuuuuuu Guyyysss!
It's been like forever and a half since I've blogged, right?!?
Don't take it personal...life has been out.of.control.
I know- that's everyone's excuse.
But I'm super excited to be back!
Here's the past few months- bullet style for time's sake.
 
-End of school year madness {INSANE}
-Changed job positions & moved classrooms {OVERWHELMING}
-Bought our first house {EXCITING}
-Taught summer school {FUN}
-Moved {STRESSFUL}
-Renovated half the house {EXHAUSTING}
-Vacationed to Georgia {RELAXING}
-Last minute trip to Colorado {BEAUTIFUL}
 
And there may have been a few glorious pajama days filled with Pinterest and the DVR :)
{THE BEST}
 
See??
Super busy.
I don't lie.
 
So this little slice of internet pie took the back seat.
It's true.
The past few months flew by.
 
I can't believe it's already time to go back to school?!
Where the heck did July go ya'll?
I seriously don't even know.
***
First thing's first- BIG NEWS!!
If you follow my FB page, then you already know that I'm coming out of the classroom this year.
I'm officially an ART TEACHER at my sweet lil school.
I'm over.the.moon!!
It was the hardest dang decision ya'll.
My 2nd grade team and I are thisclose.
I love those ladies and having to move out of our team's portable pod was not easy.
You would've thought I was moving across country! HA!

 
So what does all this mean for The Learning Tree???
Great question.

 
I've kicked off the change with a much needed blog makeover.
Ain't it cute??
I'm 10 kinds of giddy over how it turned out!
Kassie was so patient with all of my questions and tiny revisions.
She was a trooper and I'd recommend her a million times over!
 
She built some fab side tabs where you'll be able to search all my posts by grade level!
As the year goes on, I'll link the posts there to make it easier for ya'll to find what you're looking for.
 
I'll be teaching Kinder through 5th {YIKES} so that means organization will be priority numero uno!
 
I went in to my new room on Monday!
I accomplished a lot...in my opinion. ;)
I  moved a few boxes from one table to another.
Circled the room a couple times.
Scratched my head about room layout.
Thought about unpacking.
Moved a few more boxes. 

...and then decided I need something to show for my few hours of work...

It was all I could do to add a lil order to that world of chaos.
I could go home happy knowing I put something into color order.
 
Starting fresh is daunting ya'll! HA!
 
Anyway...I'll be back to share more as it goes.
Our official start date is next Monday but our week is SLAMMED full of trainings and meetings and presentations and more trainings.
Translation: I'VE GOT TO GET MOVING!
 
Goodbye pajama days.
You've been good to me.
