Thankful Thursday

This has been such a busy week for me. I've been trying to get my classroom organized and ready for kids on the 25th. I always try to go in a week before I'm required to so I can get stuff ready. The week before school starts we have teacher in-service days so that doesn't leave me much time in my room. I should have taken before and after pictures so you could see my progress. My room has come a long way! It was a disaster in the beginning!! Which leads me to all the things I'm thankful for...

My friend Jennifer came up to school on Monday to go with me to pick up a bookshelf we found at a garage sale for $5. When she walked into my room I was just standing there looking around. She felt bad for me so after we picked up the bookshelf, she ended up staying the day. She was a worker for sure. She also came back on Tuesday. I begged her son Zach to come and help us with a couple things and he graciously did that. Her daughter Lindsey also came Monday and Tuesday. She is the sweetest college girl I know! She is getting ready to go back to college and instead of spending her free time doing what she wants, she hung out with us making my bulletin boards look adorable and pitching in wherever needed. I honestly could not have gotten so much done without their help. Our friend David even stopped by to drop off some razor blades....we needed to get all this very ugly contact paper off the filing cabinet. Thanks you guys! You all rock!

This weekend we are going to visit Barry's parents. I went earlier this summer for a night when Linda had a Pampered Chef party for me, but I can't even remember when Barry was there last. This will be his last opportunity to go for a weekend until sometime in November. Football begins for him next week so he will be busy with that every Saturday and most other days as well.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for commenting on my blog! I love to see lurkers come out of hiding! Oh - and definitely at least show pics of your classroom now that it's all nicely done! :)
