New school year... New GRADE! Ah!

Well, its official.
Next year I will be moving on up...
4th grade here I come!

I still see myself as a relatively *new* teacher,
but its been nice to have been in the same grade for three years.
I am EXCITED and a little nervous to move to a new grade.
So much new stuff to learn! 
But also... so much new stuff I can create! 

Have you moved to a new grade?
Let me know how it was! Any tips?

Also, let me know your favorite 4th grade blogs!

Excited and ready for the "Adventures of Ms. Smith.... in 4th grade!"
I'll be back soon with some decor ideas and resources I have been working on!

Sweet Summertime...

Wow... it has been over a month since I last blogged.
I love blogging, but I have really been enjoying my summer.
We got out the last week in May 
and I have been on full force summer mode since then.
Today.. for the first time since school got out... I worked on school stuff.
"Summer mode" has been fun but it's time to get back in school prep mode action!

What have I been doing? 

I spent a few days relaxing on the beach right after school got out!

 Then I headed on a 10 day mission trip! 
God's creation is absolutely stunning. 
Thankful for the opportunity to explore his creation
and to share his word.

Unfortunately the adventures are basically over for the summer. 
Now it's time to prep and plan for next year... 
let the countdown to August begin!

What adventures have you gotten yourself into?
I'd love to hear! =)
