Back to School, working out, and all the stress that goes with it


Summer is over! And it's so sad. 

I've been unbelievably busy this week. Teachers started back to school and we've been busily preparing for the kids to return on Monday. As you are well aware, there's a lot to do to prepare for the first day of school. Tons of just logistical stuff - modes of transportation, school to home communication platform, contact information updates, carpool tags, bus cards, scheduling, website updating, professional developing, trainings, and the lists goes on and on even before lesson planning! 

Thankfully, at my school, the leadership team takes the responsibility of many of these things off the teachers' plates. 

But it makes for messy offices ad multi-tasking 😂😂😂 Here I am in the middle of Safe Schools online training as well as checking my email and eating a snack. 

I also made login cards this week to give out to the students. They use their Clever badge to log in to Chromebooks which makes logging in much faster for the littles. 

You can grab this template HERE. 

I use Autocrat, a Google Sheets Add on to help me merge all the tagged information on the cards. You can read all about how to do this on my blog at this LINK! It is SUCH a time saver. Once you have everything in the spreadsheet, it's so simple to merge them to all the cards. I don't currently have a tutorial for the <<Clever Badge>> image since it's a little more involved but I'm working on it. 

The rest of the week was more of the same - working on a computer doing something that needed to be done. But here's a quick rundown of behind the scenes! 

I started the week with meal prepping. 

Lilo was underfoot at all times, as she always is. 

It was Chip's birthday! He turned 11 years young. Here he is mad at me because I wanted to take a picture before he ate his cookie cake, that I made and decorated! 

It was also my friend Annabel's dog's birthday, Milly, so I made her a cookie cake, too! 
I took video of how I made these cookies for the doggos, and I'll be making an Instagram Reel soon! 

I started 80 Day Obsession (for some unknown reason) on Monday and it's been a killer. I wake up at 5:15 to workout, and I've been doing it!! Today was Day 6 and it was Cardio Flow and I swear I thought I wasn't going to make it through the whole zoo. But I did! Ready for that rest day tomorrow. 

Ready for Week 2 and the First Day of School! Have a great weekend!
