I can’t even begin to explain just how fast this summer flew by. I’m not sure if it was because of the wedding, because of our honeymoon, because of our wedding preparations, because of building a house, or a combination of them all, but the bottom line is that this summer was everything but a relaxing vacation. I can’t complain though, because this summer resulted in Kevin and I tying the knot which was by far the happiest day of my life thus far. Gosh do I love that man! The last three weeks of my summer vacation were spent at the elementary school getting my classroom ready for my brand new second graders. After many hours of cleaning, laminating, cutting out everything that was laminated, rearranging, cutting out letters, and decorating, my classroom is finally ready for the 2010 – 2011 school year. Here are a few pictures of my classroom. I love how it turned out! Mrs. Rush is ready for her first year with second graders and her first year as…Mrs. Rush!
