New Baby!!

I have mentioned my best friend Diana several times now on this blog. She's a big deal in my life. I don't know what I would do without her. So it was a really big deal when she finally had her THIRD baby girl early Sunday morning! I was so blessed to be a part of that experience for her! She texted me right before 2am to tell me that she thought she was in labor & that I needed to come to their house. We all immediately left for the hospital right after I got there & she had the baby at 4am!

She wanted to have a natural birth like I did with Isis and she did it!! I'm telling you, she is a warrior and it was absolutely amazing because it was the first time I've ever been in the room for a birth that wasn't my own. I must say, women are amazing. I don't care how you give birth or by what means the baby ends up here, women are still just flat out amazing and to say any different would be crazy.

I am so proud of her and so excited for this new stage in her life and the life of her family! Three girls!! What fun!!

Diana & Penelope Iris!
We'll call her Penny!

My Classroom

Ah, friends. It's time. School starts on Wednesday. I have worked all summer preparing my room, going to trainings to prepare my mind, studying up again on classroom procedures, assessments, engagement activities, morning meeting, reading workshop, the new common core standards, etc. It's been quite a ride! As many of you following along know, I went back to school to be a teacher and am now about to start my very first year in my own 4th grade classroom! What a fun time! I am nervous and anxious, but I also feel very prepared and just ready for this journey! We had open house tonight and I met most of my students and their parents and I just believe it is going to be a wonderful year! Here are some pics of my classroom!

Empty classroom, ready to be given that special touch!

Phase one of the setup - arrange the desks, do the bulletin board & bring in the book boxes!
