. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Countdown has began

April 21, 2013

Countdown has began

skirt, shirt and shoes: old navy

In the last weeks I have said all of these things at least once in my classroom . . . 

Let me check your pencil sharpener for ants.  

You may not bring those ants home, please empty your pencil sharpener in the trash. 

We just talked about this last week.  You may not be firing people from your club.  

You may not even have a special club.  

Please stop crawling underneath your desk. 

It shouldn't take you 15 minutes to pick your pencil up off the floor again.  

and no I am not planning on naming my baby Zorro.
 
As another Monday rolls around, let's just say it is time for summer and the countdown is on! 31 school days to go!

Haha love this! Are you sure you don't want to name the baby Zorro?

Hima said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

This is so funny! I can't wait for school to be out either! Are you sure Zorro wouldn't be an awesome name though? ;)

Casey said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Is it sad that I have said many versions of these to my 8th graders??? I prefer to do my countdowns by Mondays: we have 8 left :)

You know I understand girl!! Almost summer! Although you know you will miss their little voices when you are relaxing by the pool or reading a book in silence. Haha.

Zorro Vale has a certain ring to it! :) Soooooo your outfit just reminded me of how you made me obsessed w/ that skirt last summer and how I spent a whole week checking out like 4 different Old Navy's until I finally found it. Geez, now I am wondering if I even fit in it!?

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I count in days too. I, actually, only have 5 left. But for everyone else, it's only 23. That's insane to me. It feels like this year JUST started!

Erin De Young said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Jamie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

31 days?!?! Man, am I envious. We go until June 19th, and all of your sayings sound a lot like mine coupled with, "You cannot make up a game where you throw balls at people's faces!".
