I have been blog stalking Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her currently!  She had it up today!  Wheee! Here's what I've been up to:

I mean who isn't listening to the Olympics...mine's going on in the background....I was on pins and needles watching the gymnastics all around last night!

I love being on vacation; I love being with my in-laws even more!  I mean seriously, I get to come to Texas every year for a week and a half and get pampered.  I got to go to the Yacht Club last night!  I can tell you, I definitely don't belong to a Yacht Club at home. Here's a picture from the deck of the club.

Anyway, I'm getting very excited listening to some teachers talk about getting their room ready!  I still have a month to go.  We start very late, after Labor Day late.  I know, some one you guys are probably cursing me, but I bet you get to get out way earlier than I do.

Must have caffeine...if I don't, Mike asks if I've coffee as soon as I start grumbling. Gotta love husbands!

Okay, I know a bunch of people like owls, but this is getting out of hand!  I plan to do an owl theme for my class this year; I'm pretty sure I'll be the only one at me school doing, it so it'll be okay.  If not, it's all good because I didn't go and buy the ready made kind!  I made my own, thank you very much! Check them out!

Then I figured out how to make them in Photoshop , and this is what happened:

I made 25 of them; one for each student (I hope I don't have 25, but just in case).  I'm contemplating selling them in my store.  What do you guys think?

Flair Pens..that's just obvious.

Crate Seats!  I keep seeing them everywhere and I had wanted to do them last year.  I got a bunch of MILK CRATES instead of the file crates.  So my crates do not have that lip to put the seat on!  If anyone can figure out how to make a milk crate into a seat please, pretty please, with a cherry on top, message me!

That's all for now.  Go link up with Farley!
