Another year is under my belt. Wow. This year went by mega fast. My students were a sweet group. I look forward to seeing them in the halls come August.

Just so you know, I will most likely not be posting much throughout the summer. I'm writing this post in the airport. I'm heading off to a beach house for a week. After that, I'm heading home to be with my family for a few weeks. And, I'll be honest, I don't dress up much during the summer. I usually wear the same outfit for about 3 days in a row. Terrible, I know. But, anyway, I'll do the best I can.

Enjoy your long Memorial Day weekend!!!

Today was our 3rd grade program for the parents. The students were darling and did a great job. It hardly feels like the last week of school because it's been so rainy and cool. Not typical "school's out for the summer" weather.

Church. Apparently I like to put my hand on my hip. It was a cool, rainy morning, so I thought I'd wear black. But when I came out of church, it was a lovely spring day. The weather is so fickle.

Even though I wish it were sunny and hot outside, I do like the rainy and cooler spring days because I get to wear some items that are too hot to wear otherwise.

Today, my team and I collaborated. I have the BEST team/coworkers! We get along so well and really enjoy each other. We spent all morning revamping and improving our homework packets; we didn't leave for lunch until 12:25. After lunch, we finished up working on workbooks and other items to be sent down to the district print. I'm so lucky that my principal/district pay for this day to meet as a team. We didn't get to really look over our curriculum scope and sequence to see what changes we wanted to make. I guess we'll have to do that after school one of these day. I also really liked being able to wear jeans.

Church. I'm sad to see the weekend end. Yesterday, my friends and I rode our bikes to lunch. Nice weather + a beach cruiser = wonderful day. It was also one of my best friends' birthday. It was great spending time with her and other close friends.

MY KEYS WERE FOUND!!! A student claimed he found them outside. The story was a bit suspicious, so I kind of confronted him about it. He knows I'm on to him if he did take them. But honestly, 85% of me just cares that I have them back.

I can't find my school keys anywhere. Oh dear. My keys were stolen in January, so I had to get a new set. I don't want to tell my principal that my new set is missing, too. Please pray that I'll find them. Thanks!!

Today was our class talent show. I make all the students participate (piano, dance, throw a football, show a piece of artwork, read an excerpt from a story she wrote, etc.). They all did such a great job.

This blazer is another example of good things come to those that wait. I tried on this blazer back in November. I was a good little girl and waited for it to go on sale. Then I was an even better little girl and waited for it to take a 2nd cut. $30 score. Looking at this picture I realize I should've worn a necklace. Next time.

Today we went on walking field trip along our city's Main Street. The students absolutely loved it! We stopped at city hall, a bank, police station, the park, and the library. The weather has totally been our friend this week. Thank you, Mr. Weatherman.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I've always thought this was a funny holiday, especially since only one state in Mexico celebrates it. Oh well. I never complain about eating Mexican food.

Today I did reading assessments. I have two boys that struggle with reading, but this year we have worked so hard. I just know that they're not going to keep up their reading over the summer. I really wish parents realized how important reading over the summer is.

No outfit shot from yesterday. It was the district 3rd grade track meet, so I wore jeans and a tee. I was so proud of my students. They all tried very hard. Several of them made it to the semis and finals. A couple of them even placed! Our two girls' relay teams took 1st & 2nd. It was so much fun! And we had PERFECT weather.

My outfit inspiration came from Sarah at You, Me & Anthropologie. As I looked at her outfit, I thought, "I have something very similar to every piece she's wearing." That's one thing I really enjoy about fashion blogs. Plus, other people's outfits have saved me a lot of wasted time spent in front of the closet trying to figure out what to wear.

I'm joining Kim's at Anthroholic shopping ban. I have been so good about not shopping these last couple of months, so why not continue it? Plus, it never hurts to put away and save a few more dollars each month.

I know I've worn this skirt 3 times in 2 weeks. I was really eager to wear this outfit. The top is my roommate's. She has never worn it and doesn't how to. I thought I would take on the challenge for her. Now, I don't think that I want to return it.

Today, a few of my students asked me about Osama bin Laden. It made me sad to realize that 3/4 of my class wasn't even born when 9/11 happened. I remember exactly where I was when I heard about it. It was a Tuesday morning. My older sister called and told my family. She was driving to ASU and heard it on the radio, so stopped and used a pay phone to tell us. My parents, younger sister, and I were just sitting down for breakfast. It was around 6:30 am. We turned on channel 12, NBC. We were stunned. Shocked. Speechless. Anyway, I am starting feel a bit like my granny: realizing that a piece of history is being forgotten.

Hope you have a great week!

Did anyone else stay up or wake up for the wedding? I loved it. Loved Kate's dress, timeless and beautiful. Loved when Harry turned around and looked at Kate walking up the aisle and then said something about her looks to William. Loved when William whispered, "You look beautiful" to Kate.
In honor of the wedding, I wore royal blue.
