We only had school on Monday and Tuesday, so with so many days off I have lost track of which day it is. I love it when that happens...until I realize that it's almost time to go back haha. Not that I don't want to go back, I miss my kiddos, but I have finally started to turn off my 6am internal alarm clock.
A couple of weeks ago we had 6 schools days where we had inside recess. SIX!! SIX days where the kids had to be INSIDE!!! It was ROUGH!
For Veteran's Day we did a whole unit that we were able to incorporate throughout most of our content areas. This was one of the activities I did with my class (from TPT of course).
I was out sick for two whole days as well!! I hate being absent. It's more of a pain to make sub plans and be away from the classroom, but I was soooooo sick ugh. I felt terrible too because I had a new student come while I was absent and one of my other kiddos moved away unexpectedly while I was absent as well. I still feel like I am recovering from my virus too and its been 2 weeks since it began!
Almost everyday this is how my husband and I have been feeling after work. Anyone else feeling this way? Maybe not so much now since we are all on break...
Thanksgiving was so much fun this year. It was our first Thanksgiving without our families. We decided to do things a little different. We spent the day skiing in Winter Park. It was a beautiful day. 45 degrees, 60 inches of fresh snow, blue skies. I didn't need to wear gloves and I didn't want to wear my jacket but my husband told me I should (he's always looking out for me). I am also not a fan of Thanksgiving food. Really, I only like the mashed potatoes. My husband LOVES Thanksgiving food. He was very very sweet this year and compromised. We had tacos for dinner :) They were ot just regular tacos, they were tacos that his dad makes special. It was fun to do something different and special just us. We definitely missed our families but enjoyed the day skiing.
Today we FINALLY decorated our apartment for Christmas. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I also love decorating. We watched Elf while we decorated (a tradition), then when we were finished decoration we sat on the couch and napped while we finished "watching" Elf.
So now it's time to write my final paper for my grad class and get ready to go back to the kids on Monday. 2 more weeks until winter break. I feel like the below is true, and you might need to scrape me off the ceiling as well. I feel like the next two weeks is going to be CRAZZZZYYYYY! We have a winter music performance, assessments, etc. Thank God my mother in law is flying in to visit my classroom for a day- I have a lot for her to help me with :)
