June 30th

After finally sleeping in today, I went through all the bags of stuff I brought home.  This is taking up 3/4 of my queen sized bed!  My husband should be happy.  I brought him home a new wardrobe of t-shirts and got my kids the flash drives they need for next year.

Today I walked around the exhibitor hall and talked to companies I have in my school.  I found some great free resources also.  It was fun running into booths like these.  It's a shame I missed Curious George.

At the conference I met up with a few friends from Fablevision.  Peter and Paul Reynolds, the founders and owners of the company, are the nicest guys you can ever meet.  I met up with them and their crew at the lounge, where we talked.  It was just great to see them again.

We took Traci to her first soccer game.  She wasn't feeling well at first but felt better after the intermission.  We went up to the Capt. Morgan's Deck to get a better view of the game.  The Union won 3-1 against Chivas!!

Giving a big cheesy smile last night at the retirement dinner.  It was a great time.  I am surprised our new principal didn't run out of the place screaming at how crazy we were. I guess that's a good sign.

Last day of school!!! I have so much stuff stored that I can't fit anything else. I guess the mice will have to find a different hiding place.

This was the cake Jonathan ordered for dessert.  We think it was larger than him or weighed more than him.

Happy father's day to my hubby and to all the other dads out there.  This is a picture of my father and I.  This is the only picture that I could find in my albums.  I will have to raid my mom's pictures to find a better one.

It is my mom's 75th birthday, so the kids and I got her back for the 40 pigs on my lawn 2 years ago.  We went to Acme and bought her roses and cards.  The kids decorated a big cookie that we brought to the pool.  The kids and I took 150 happy birthday papers and taped them all over her apartment.  We then took her to PF Changs for dinner.

Graduation Day for my 8th graders!  Joella, Abby and Laura are my only students that maintained an A all year.  I am so proud of all the award metals they received today.  I wish them all the best in high school and beyond.  I just wish I looked better in this picture.

Today we got out early again because of the heat.  I went to the hair dresser early and got a new do.  I am loving it.  It's a very easy summer style.

July 8th

Today we got out early from school because of the heat. I have air conditioning in my classroom, but the hallway was like a sauna.  I crammed so many kids into my lab to get them out of the heat.  When I got to my car this is the temperature that was registering.

Tonight was the last night of Girl Scouts. One of the parents bought me a Dunkin Donuts cup and gift card.  I love DD!  I am going to miss my girls as this year is my last as a Brownie leader.

I'm finally finished my school's yearbook.  I love Mixbook. It's the only company that lets me create a 30 page soft book for under $20.  They also give discounts the more you order.

After brushing our dog there was enough fur to make a few sweaters for chihuahuas. My husband decided to take of the excess hair with the vacuum. Saki was fine and just didn't like the noise.
