Spring has sprung!

I just LOVE spring. And if you have been reading my blog you know that I also LOVE flowers. Well, I thought I would share what I have been enjoying every day since about Sunday. My azalea bushes. You should have seen them when we bought the house....they were WAY taller than the windows. I butchered trimmed them and the last couple of years, they have just been gorgeous.

Here is the latest picture of our "grass" men. I think it is so cool to see how much they grow over night. The kids absolutely love it!!

(if you notice in the background, I can not turn down ANY art work from my students. So this is were it all gets displayed.)

See my little helper (to the right) trying to get in on the picture. She was all trying to pose while I was taking the picture. lol

It was a pretty good day. First, it was the last day of testing. Second, I got to pick the colors of my new classroom! I don't know why, but this was SOOO exciting for me. I even got to help pick out the tile flooring. =) And on top of ALL of that I got to spend the evening with my 3 favorite dogs. They love getting out of the fence and being able to play in the front yard.

So here is to the simple joys of life! =)
