It’s our first day back, for meetings and the open house tonight. The kids arrive a week from today. I have to admit that I’m not as enthusiastic and excited as usual, as I’ve had a terrible summer. But finding these pencil cup holders gave me my first bit of glee in a long while! Aren’t they awesome? Now students have a place to keep their own scissors, a glue stick, and of course a few pencils. They can carry the cups away or reach them from where they sit, too. I added number tags to each that correspond to each seat’s number. The holder parts did have handles but they fell off if you looked at them too hard, so I decided to just remove them now.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this works out as well as I hope it does!
These are the cups I want! Right now, I have plastic cups in bins, but the cups tip over when all six aren’t in there.
We got to see our new apartment today! So excited to move in on Monday.
It’s brand new, and there are a couple of finishes I wouldn’t have chosen (cough weird granite color cough), but the big picture is looking fabulous.
Also, we were the first people to see their apartment…two thumbs up from unnecessarily competitive Kelsey.
At the start of a new school year, take a moment and share this with a teacher.
ignore the rivers of mascara and tears running down my face
I’m not crying. There’s just a stick in my eye.
