First, I have to thank everyone who has stopped by my blog! I am truly humbled and grateful. I am hoping that my excitement about the entire Operation Smile auction will carry me through today, my first day of the new school year. Yep, that's right! School starts today for faculty and staff, with students starting Friday. I have a lot to do to be ready for Open House Thursday night and for the start of school. (I teach 5th grade full time.) Though I hate that we're being mandated three furlough days, I'm thankful that our school system is not making us take them now (like the Governor wanted) when there is so, so much to do. (We're losing an inservice before Thanksgiving and 2 more days- snow days if we have them/postplanning if we do not.)
On another thankful note, Close To My Heart is offering a special thank you to customers from Aug. 3-17 on all orders of $100 or more! If you click on the photo, you should be able to read the text. If you can't, LMK and I'll be happy to tell you all about it. You can also find out more at my CTMH website.
