Gettin' Ready

Thanks to Kacey at Doodlebug Teaching, I made these great birthday treats. Super cute and easy to make. Every year I give the kiddies a birthday bracelet from the magazine Really Good Stuff but I forgot to order them for this year and as soon as I saw these I got busy and here they are.

So this is where I've been the last several days. I called this my last hurrah before going back to school. I went with a wonderful friend of mine. After seeing so many pics from all the teachers who also just came back from their kindergarten blog meet up in Vegas I was so glad I was going. They look like they had an awesome time. It was really hot out there but if we weren't at the pool we were inside seeing shows (The Jersey Boys were wonderful and Terry Fator was just amazing!), eating, and of course gambling. What a great place to go to for a short visit and squeeze alot in.  Now back to getting reading for school, which starts on the 21st for the kiddies. By the way, our school has always had a half of day on the first day, 11:30 dismissal. Now I guess the state changed requirements and says we can't count a half day on the first day as a whole day so now we have the kiddies until 1:00. It's going to be a long first day with these kiddies and me, especially if the heat is on. If you have any suggestions for keeping their attention the last hour or so of school I would greatly appreciate it. I do have some ideas but can always use more.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Thanks for the sweet comment. It was good to take a little vacation and what better place to go. I added a link to my bulletin boards. Thanks for the Linky party.
