Showering Baby Harper!

I am SO lucky that Harper is going to be raised in a community that loves and cares for her.  Andrew and I feel so blessed!

A few weeks ago, our Sunday School class threw a shower for us, and I wanted to share photos with you.  We had so much fun together...it's so obvious they know me well!! Glitter gold stars to guess baby's arrival date? Precious!






Just last weekend, my best friend and her mom threw a BEAUTIFUL baby shower for sweet Harper in their home.  I was overwhelmed with all the love. :)












I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many amazing people.  Harper is going to truly know the definition of love, and I just am so excited for her to meet her tribe. :)

Nursery Reveal!

Well, if it was up to me, I would have had Harper's nursery done WEEKS ago, but considering we just moved in to our new house a month ago...I guess it's okay that we just finished this weekend.  

She can officially come now, because her room is ready!! (I know, I know...she won't even sleep there for a while, but whatever.  The OCD person in me needed this...)

Take a peek!  I'm seriously in love with how everything turned out!







{Andrew's aunt found the rocker at a thrift store, and repainted/recovered it for us}

{The garland in the corner was made by some wonderful friends for baby showers.  I couldn't not add them to the room.}


{I made the mobile with TONS of help from my friends, and we purchased the mobile arm}

First Week of School!

Well, it's officially the second full week of school! I wasn't able to snap as many pictures as I wanted last week, but it was GREAT!  My kiddos are already working so hard to get in a routine, and learn the ways of kindergarten. :)



We worked on ABC Ya! playing some letter and number games...


We even practiced retelling stories to our partners...


It was such a great week!!


Now, to have a great second full week of school! 

Are you back at school yet? What are some of your favorite back to school activities?

Meet and Greet - Classroom Tour

Today is the day! I get to meet my new friends today!  I've worked hard the past week and a half to get my room ready for year number three.  I cannot wait to meet my students, but I'd be lying if I said it doesn't make me a little nervous.  I mean, how are the parents going to react when they find out I'm pregnant?  What are they going to say/do?  I am super organized and prepared, so I'll just tell them that...and hope that that makes them feel better!

Here's what my classroom looks like TODAY:











Now, I'm all set for our first day of school tomorrow!

Back to the Classroom!

Pre-planning begins today, which means I've been in my classroom all last week getting everything set up!  We are asked to take everything off the walls...and take all of our personal stuff home for the summer.  I cheated just a little bit, and tried to stuff as much as I could in my cabinets...and I was given the okay by facilities to leave my alphabet/numbers on the wall (thank goodness), so this set up has been pretty easy this year!

{I'm cheating...this photo is from last year. My bulletin boards are done already...}

Of course, there are little things here and there that I'm changing, because I can't not.  I'm so excited for the new year...but super nervous about maternity leave come September!

Are you back in your classroom yet?  Have you been laminating like a mad-man like me?
