1. The winner of the Lock Laces Giveaway is Jennifer Harling. Thanks to all that participated.
2. I cannot believe it is already August 1st. That means less than a month for school to start. I am sort of ready to go back to school. I like new things so I am excited about the new students, principal and assistant principal, writing materials, and three additional 1st grade teachers. The first day of school is August 26. The students’ first day is August 28th. Hopefully I can go set up my classroom on August 19. It usually takes me 2-3 days depending on how early I go and how late I stay. My goal is 2 days.
3. It looks like I’ve been “miscounting” on my goal to run a half marathon in each state. Yikes! I thought it was 21 states but in reality it’s 19 because I ran a full marathon in CT and LA. The plan is to run the ING Hartford Half Marathon in October of this year and the Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans in February 2014.
