Last week was a crazy week and I'm not too hopeful for next week. We planned a field trip for our first graders on Monday to a place called Mainstay Farm. They will get to see a real working farm, make their own scarecrow, and play in a huge treehouse! But we didn't know if we would actually be able to go until Friday. Our district came out with new rules for field trips and gave them out last week. We already had everything in line with permission slips and money. Then we found out we had to email someone else in the district to get their approval. It all worked out in the end though and I hope the kids have a blast.
Next week will be crazy too! We have the field trip on Monday, then I am out Thursday and Friday for a conference. I am going to a literacy conference that I will be presenting at during one of the breakout sessions. My friend was originally suppose to present, but found out she had to be somewhere else so she asked me if I wanted the opportunity. I was so excited to get the chance to present and put this on my resume. But I am also terrified because I have never presented in front of this many people before. Hopefully everything goes smooth!
