It's beginning to look a lot like...

 Back to School?!?!

It's been a LONG while bloggy buddies!!!  I haven't totally left you all...I've been doing an OK job of keeping up w/you all by stalking your blogs.  Many of you have been BUSY!!!!  Thank you for all of the ideas and freebies.  Would you believe that I have tried to post something FIVE times?!?!  I have had FIVE drafts.  I considered posting them, but deleted them instead. 

Anywho...I can't believe it is that time of year already!!!  I went to the local Wal-Mart yesterday and to my dismay there were Back to School "signs" everywhere I turned!  (No, this was not my first trip to WM, but the first time I let my cart enter the school supply aisle.)  I guess it's time to start preparing myself (and the boys) for school mode...we have soooo enjoyed sleeping in, going to the pool, creek or river, ballgames, and lounging! Just living up the carefree SUMMER lifestyle! :)  I hate to see it end.

Next week (Monday and Tuesday) I will be going to the Missouri Conference for Kindergarten Teachers in Osage Beach, MO.  It's not Vegas, but usually gets me thinking BACK TO SCHOOL!  I'm excited about aquiring lots of new ideas and just getting away w/my two awesome teaching buddies.  I'm sure we'll have a great time...we always do! ;)

I have nothing of my own to share w/you, but found a Back to School Scavenger Hunt that I will be giving my Kindergarten Love Muffins at Open House. 
Stop by Little Warriors and pick one up for yourself...it's a FREEBIE!  Make sure you tell Mrs. Mense THANK YOU!!!


  1. Good luck at your conference next week! It's hard to believe that back to school time is right around the corner!

  2. I just saw a comment you made back in 2010 about using 5 gallon buckets as seats. Do you have a picture of them or directions? They seem like they would be sturdier than crates and taller for my 4th graders. Thanks so much for any help you can give!

  3. I do use 5 gallon buckets. I'm currently in the process of recovering my cushions. When I finish I will definitely post a picture.

  4. Hi! I just found your blog and am now a follower. I am giving you an award. Please hop over to my blog to pick it up. I'd love for you to become a follower as well, if you would like.

  6. I love these! I'm going to cut off the bottom and use them for our visits to kindergarten this week. Thanks!
