My oh my it's hard to believe that 2015 is here and Christmas break is nearly over already!

Over the break some big changes happened in my classroom! This is my first time teaching Kindergarten and although I have 2 awesome mentor teachers helping me along it has definitely been a live-and-learn experience for me! I wanted to make some changes to my room, and I figured now was my chance!

 I apologize in advance for the not-so-great quality of some of these pictures, I'm working on getting better!

We "graduated" from tables to our very own "big kid" desks! I have some kiddos who just need their own space to do their thing, and we had enough desks to make it happen. Woot!

I am also the owner of brand- new set of cubbies made specifically for me by our schools "Dram Team" So I moved some things around to make room for them!

I also plan on making some changes to my take-home folder system, but that's another post! 
 I'm excited to get back to school and back into our regular routines!

Did you make any changes to your classroom over break? Is there anything you wish you would have done differently from the beginning? Share your thoughts and ideas in the comments below!

A First Time for Everything- Currently January

Hello Lovely Readers! 

As they say there's a first time for everything! Today I'm doing something new and linking up with Oh Boy 4th Grade's Currently Linky Party!

 I am super excited to join all the fun that this Linky Party brings! So without further adieu...

** Listening**
My Hubby is playing Halo on the Xbox. This is how we spend our "lazy days." He plays games, I cruise around the teacher blogger world, while maybe definitely catching up on my favorite shows!


I'm loving having all this time off for Christmas break! I've spent a lot of time just hanging out with my hubby and relaxing. Of course we've also have some days where we've run around like chickens with our heads cut off! It seems all our friends/family always decide to host their holiday parties on the same days, and we try our hardest to go to them all! I'm ready to get back to school and my regular routine! 


I really should have gone up to school today and gotten everything for next week finalized, but I didn't! I'll pay for my lazy day next week when I'm rushing to make copies! Eeek! 

** Wanting**

This year I have been so incredibly blessed to have 3 beautiful babies born into my life.  Unfortunately, life sometimes gets in the way, and I don't get as many chances to snuggle with them as I would like! I miss their squishy faces! I need to visit with one of them soon and get my "baby fix"!

** Needing**

 I really do need to put our Christmas tree away. It's just a tiny little thing, but the tub it belongs in is in the back of a closet cluttered up with junk I really just don't want to tackle!

** Yes, Maybe, I Wish**

In 2015 I will definitely work on becoming more organized in my home and my school life!

Maybe 2015 is the year I we will be blessed with a baby of our own! I'm hoping 2015 is our year, but only God knows his plan for us, and until our time comes I'm trying to be patient!

I wish I could open my own thrift store. It's no secret I love getting a good deal, and am not ashamed of buying second-hand! If I could open my own store, I would cater to the plus-size- I want to be fashionable but I'm not a millionaire-  market

And that's it! Here's to my very first currently and an awesome start to 2015!

Happy New Year!
