And that's a wrap....

And it's a wrap!  My 17th year of teaching has come to an end.  I always get a bit sad to see the littles go.  However, I am looking foward to a lot of this....

I love to read and I never get the chance during the school year.  I bought these books last week and I have read all but one already!

I am also looking forward to spending my summer with this love...

This is Bentley.  He is a 1 1/2 year old beagle that we rescued from a shelter.  He has quite a story.  Bentley came from Kentucky where he was a Canine Companion.  He was in prison, raised by a prison inmate who taught him all his basic commands (sit, stay, down, heel, etc.).  After he "graduated" he was released to a shelter here in MA and that's how he came to us.  He is such a love and such a cuddle bug.  He suffers from a bit lot of separation anxiety from me so this summer we are going to work on me being able to leave the room without him and then progress to me leaving the house without whining, whimpering, and howling.  Poor little guy.

  I also plan on working more on this blog and creating and selling more on Teachers Pay Teachers.  I'm hoping to get an interactive math notebook set up by the end of the week (if Bentley lets me).  

What are your summer plans?  I love to hear from you so please do share!


  1. Hi Julie,
    What a sweet story! It sounds like all he needs is love! Thanks for sharing. Karen

    1. Awwwww thanks, Karen. Sometimes I'm not sure who has rescued who. :)

  2. Hey there, Julie! I saw that you left a comment on my blog about Sell-It Saturday! We are still up and running. I was just on vacation this past week and neglected to schedule a blog post while I was away! Rest assured it will return this weekend. By the way - as I went to reply to you, I noticed that you are a noreply blogger which means that people cannot email you to reply to your comments. Make sure you google the term to learn how to fix it!
