Tomorrow is my 1st offical day back! District meetings + working in my room + it being Friday = a relatively easy start back to school. Today, on my last official day of summer vacation... instead of dealing with all the minutia that is scattered on my tables, I shopped and decorated my bulletin board! It's amazing how an hour and a half of border, hot glue guns, straw, and faux flowers can awaken you from all the little things that get piled on in the end.
Here's what I created for our western themed back to school event...
While at the teacher store, I happened upon these retro-looking Carson Dellosa star crowns. I didn't have any birthday crowns. (Oops, I forgot to order them!) Thus, I found these on clearance and love how they remind me of when I was in kindergarten! Has anyone else seen these?
I will write "Happy Birthday, _______!" in the big star on the front. I usually use the birthday cake ones, but with it being only $5.50 on clearance for 30 crowns, I couldn't pass up the deal!
Also, I have a question... is anyone else OBSESSED with these?
Wish me luck as I attempt to wake up at 6:30 AM for the first time in two and a half months! There will be Starbucks in my hand and a smile on my face... I'm sure of it!
