Well, because of this...
I'm in Chicago for the weekend for the 1st annual Midwest Teacher Blogger Meet Up! I left right after school yesterday, and got in about 8:15ish. I waited for my friend Jameson, and her bestie Kirsten to arrive so we could start getting goody bags ready.
I was so fortunate enough to have U.S. Cellular's Calling All Teachers complete my funding for my 3rd Donor's Choose Project for 6 Hokki Stools. They arrived on Monday and I cannot tell you how much my students and I are in love with them. One boy in particular, who I've been struggling with helping, used one during his spelling test, and he was so FOCUSED on it I couldn't believe it. You better believe I will have him grab one for every stinking test he takes!
I've made the plunge into adding pre-designed templates on my blog design site. I originally never wanted to create pre-designs, because I prided myself in making everything custom. After doing, oh like 30 designs now, I've realized that I have so many ideas for designs, and I can't exactly change MY design every week...well I guess I could, but ya know. SO, I thought, well maybe there are some people who want a design that's cute, but don't necessarily know what they want...maybe this could be for them...and they're only $20. Two of them are available here now!
Okay, I just have to share this picture, because Maxwell decided to pose when I started packing.
Conferences are Thursday and next Tuesday....hmph!
That's all I have to say about that.
