I think I can, I think YOU can!

Summer.  It's SO close!  There have been some milestone events occurring in the past few weeks including the birth of my precious nephew!  {Mr. Magoo as he has been appropriately nicknamed.}
I am so super proud of my sister.  She is already the best mom and has agreed to send me a new picture every day.  :)  I can't wait to go back and spend more time with them after school gets out!!!
But don't let me get ahead of myself...

Our team {the residents of K-Town} always celebrate the end of the year with a team dinner.  This one was especially special since it'll be my last dinner with these ladies.  I've been with most of them for 6 years and that's going to be a hard bond to break!
They gave me some awesome going away gifts including a new {hilarious} egg hatching kit complete with a "manual egg turner" and some glittery eggs...although they couldn't tell for sure if they were fertilized.  I guess I'll find out in 21 days if I have sparkly chickens walking around!
The signed frame is a treasure and will go with me to sit on my new desk in my new classroom at my new school.
And the gold star is to hang on my door for my new teammates to see "so they know that you're fabulous."  Do they know me or what?!  So sweet.
Plus, my neighbor Erika made me these adorable cupcakes.  Ah!!  I had to eat 2 that night...can't leave a stiletto without it's pair!  ;)
Less fun and more time consuming than that, though, is the fact that I've been packing up my whole life {totally feels like it, right?!} to empty out my classroom.  Staying 2-3 hours after dismissal isn't the most fun way to spend these gorgeous afternoons but I know it has to be done...and the stopping point seems nonexistent!  3 carloads & a couple dozen boxes later and I'm about done , getting closer, making a dent.

It's no wonder I get home and crash.
{don't you want to just kiss those little lips?!}

But...I have 2 more days and I can make it.  You can make it too!  Just hang in there and be sure to get your daily laughs.  Hopefully this will get you started as you try to figure out what in the world you're going to do in those last few hours...

    1. Sharon, yay! We'll be kinder buddies! :) The cupcakes seem pretty simple, just adding graham crackers & decorations. Here's a tutorial: Good luck with them!
