Anyways, if you can continue reading despite the anticipated drool dripping down your mouth- I would like to announce the winner of the SCAATAP giveaway. Congratulations...
I will be emailing you to get all of your details!
Also, it has been a busy week... as you can tell from the lack of posting. I think Summer Fever has hit the school and we officially have nine weeks left. Hard to believe! In the meantime, here is my "currently"....
1) I have been leaving work really late (although I guess I always do this...). Landsharks, our running club for K-6 has started and so I will be coaching 4th, 5th, and 6th graders every Tuesday and Thursday. I love this program because it teaches that, "every finisher is a winner". It is such a breath of fresh air in our competitive society AND such a boost for kids. Sometimes I have a hard time leaving work, even after coaching for an hour. I always have things to do. Not that this is bad thing! Husband is very good at keeping me accountable...he is the best self-care partner a lady could have.
2) The Scholastic Book Fair was at our library this week and I received a copy of this awesome book called Manners Mash-Up: A Goofy Guide to Good Behavior. It is a compilation of various artists illustrating the manners for every situation.. in the cafeteria, on a field trip, in the classroom, etc. The artwork is enchanting and inspiring. I can't wait to use it for small groups and at the beginning of the year!
3) I moved my office around AGAIN. My co-workers gave me a hard time for this as it is the third time this year. I have to tell you that I am very pleased with my new arrangement. I now have a somewhat visible boundary to separate my desk from the therapeutic area. It actually seems like I have more room! With this new arrangement, I have so many ideas to spruce up the place. Don't worry, when I am done I will be giving a virtual tour!
4) I have been in the long and somewhat frustrating process of receiving my Initial Special Services License. After some weird mistakes (theirs, not mine!) I have finally been approved. Yay!!
Next on the agenda- my LPC..eeek!
I hope that all of you have an amazing weekend!
