Happy Halloween

I had a little bit of a break-through during this crazy week of mine....

In between all of the Pumpkin Walk planning/putting together, the Student Council Leadership Retreat, and the various Halloween festivities that come with elementary school....

I discovered.....

I like my class.... I like working with kids.

This is something that I typically wouldn't question--but after a rough start and a long few months with certain students, it's starting to come together this school year.

Who would have thought that it would take such a crazy week?

Team-Building Activity during the Student Council Retreat

The Retreat included these type of activities and a fabulous guest speaker who motivated the kids and helped me out a TON! (You rock Wendy!)

Check out these AWESOME pumpkins that were entered into the Pumpkin Walk...
We had over 250 participants!

Pumpkins.....Having to dress up....Pumpkins.....Parade for Parents.....Hyper 5th graders.....
More Pumpkins.....Class Party.....
Needless to say, I'm looking forward to November.


These photos from the week are being posted while I wait to pick up my car from the shop.

and battery.

There's always next week, right?
