School Marm

This is the scene this morning.

I've got my schoolmarm hat on and I am currently trying to get all the agenda's, maps, and weekly assignments into folders for the first nine weeks of school. Plus, I need to get my "brain" (aka, the binder that keeps me organized on a semester to semester basis) put together.

I was planning on doing some of this work this week and a lot more of it next week, but I made a slight miscalculation in my schedule.

Turns out that The Mister has the ENTIRE week off next week (LOVE that!) Which means I will not even want to think about homeschooling. Hanging out with him is one of my favorite things.

So, I'm cramming.

Its just as well.

I injured my (other) knee while running yesterday and I'm paying today for not listening to my PT's advice. Since I'm sitting here, icing bilateral (doesn't that make me sound smart) knees, I might as well work.

Since I'm short on time I gonna leave you with some links of other posts I enjoyed reading this week...but first, I have to mention the fun dinner I had last night.

I'll won't tell you about the margarita special or how I accidently walked into the men's bathroom....I'll just tell you that the company was wonderful and the food was fantastic. Oh and the entertainment was awesome!

Moving on....

The following Link is from a in-real-life friend of mine who recently moved to Belgium. I thought this post about the convenient packaging of beverages was interestingly humorous. It smacks of what could be a modern-day Anne of Green Gables Raspberry Cordial mistake in the that I might make!

On a different note, I am gonna find a reason to make some of these cookies. I think they are so pretty.

I'm also planning on making one, or a dozen, of these (with added monogram) for some new girl-babies. Pictures to come.

Happy Friday!

Too bad our classrooms aren't right next door to each other, because I am doing THE SAME THING today! The kids are thrilled that they get to watch all of the tv they want while I am holed up in the classroom. (They better enjoy it while they can) :)

I'm having the 'planning party ' too...sure wish we lived next door so we could enjoy the much needed coffee break together.

This is my fourth planning day this week..and today I get to plan, while dealing with a very bad headache. Should be interesting!

On a happier sweet baby number 3 will be baptized on Sunday. So excited!

Miss you madly and looking forward to a chat. What day does LVCG Academy commence school for the new year? You are waaaay more organized than i was the(one and only)year I home schooled. I know our circumstances were different, but I can tell you fo sho, I wasn't gathering my brain until probably around late Aug or something. And then I was closing my eyes and gritting my teeth and hoping I could do it. ;)

You are such an amazing mom and teacher, and your kids are products of this. Give them and the Mister, and the bun a squeeze for me.

Hooray for next week. Because I REALLY need to get out of this one.

I need to pop a squat at my desk and get busy on this school year. I keep procrastinating and procrastinating my weeks away, and before I know it, it will be time for the first day of school and I'm not going to have anything done. UGH.

Enjoy the week with The Mister. I love hanging with the husband on his off days, too!!
