Make a Year Monday {School Fever}

I have been at school as much as possibly since the 18th. I really try to restrain myself from going to school until the 2nd week of July because I deserve a break too right, plus we went to the beach and I had shower it just kind of fell that way. 
So now I'm running around like crazy trying to get everything finished in time for parents to come on August 11th! AHH!! PRAY! 
So, this year I will be teaching in the hallway with the fabulous Kindergarten teachers and I could not be more excited. Scared and a little nervous...yes, but excited! I wanted to share a little photos of my room construction from day #1 until I finished up today. I know some of you are going to think oh my...she has a lot to do, but trust me I've gone many days without taking photos. Sorry! 
Believe it or not--this is after I had worked for 6 hours the first day. Reminder---I moved rooms!

Ok looking back on these photos...I have come a LONG way!!

This is actually NOT trash...though it may look like it, this is all my books and pretty much everything that goes on my walls. 
Here is where I am today....
I so wish that I had remembered to take a BEFORE picture....seriously I'm so bad, but ya'll would be so very proud! 

I still have a long way to go, but I'm getting there. Many blessings to those of you who are starting back today or who have already started! I'm thinking about you. 
I also wanted to add something that I found somewhere (cannot remember where) that I am going to give to all of my K teachers and my administrators as a beginning of the year treat! Enjoy!
