the four of us snuck away a few weeks ago.
we went TROUT fishing!
I wasn't just overjoyed with the idea...and it turned out to be AWESOME!
we had the best time just being us. in our normal, weird, type of stuff that makes us who we are.

Well, the school year has begun.  We have survived.  Some days barely.  Here is my newly designed classroom.  Same old room, same old stuff, just arranged a little differently.  I have always dreamed of having tables, but scared of losing the idea of having desks if needed.  I just turned the desk openings to the middle and then bought crates to store their things at the end of the 'table' section.  Each group has a 'manager' and they are the only ones that handle the items for that week.  Not a lot of walking around or knocking into each other.  It has turned out great so far!
