Tomorrow begins day 1

Tomorrow will be the first day I work in my classroom this summer.  I am a little stressed that I only have 2 weeks to do everything, but I have enjoyed my summer and spending time with my husband and children.  My goal for tomorrow is to get all of the furniture arranged.  I've been struggling with this part all summer.  Using a wonderful (FREE) program called Sweet Home 3D, I've virtually moved the furniture around about 80 different times.  I've finally settled on this arrangement: 

The area at the top will be the library area and the other carpet area will be our meeting area.  We'll see if it actually stays this way once We start moving stuff around.  I'll post pictures soon.  

It's supposed to be 99 degrees tomorrow with a heat index of around 110.  Here's praying I don't melt!

Many of my fellow teachers have been entering the blogging world, so I decided to give it a try as well.  I have spent hours putting this thing together and I think it's finally ready.  I went back and forth trying to decide if I wanted to start a classroom blog to use with my students and their parents or a blog to share with fellow teachers.  Then, after hours of work on this blog, I discovered  It is just what I was looking for to use with my kiddos. So, instead of wasting the work I had already put into designing this blog, I decided I might as well just do both! Here goes....!
