New Floor+First Day=EXCITEMENT!!!

In two days this classroom will be filled with 
a new group of friends, a lot of giggles, and year of learning!  It's been a long, hot week getting it back in tip-top shape.  I LOVE my new floor!  If you remember, there used to be a dark green {smelly} carpet.  Last summer the lower level of the school flooded and the flooring finally had to be replaced.  It's brighter and smells fresh!

I'm ready for the new and exciting school year!!!
