I Survived The Zoo!!

Hello lovelies!
So I survived the field trip!
I can't find my camera cord or else I would post a class pic! I will post ASAP! We all looked so cute rockin' purple tie-dye shirts! Ooooh! I found a picture of the shirts as they were drying! They looked good!!
 Yes, I had 30+ shirts drying in my teeny tiny patio in my apartment!!!
 Close up of 2 of the shirts! I <3 them!
I also had to do my nails for the occasion plus I was super really nervous Tuesday night and I couldn't SLEEP!! This is a tape manicure! Never heard of it? GOOGLE IT RIGHT NOW! It is soo easy and super cute! I will do different colors next time and post some pics!! :)
Back to the shirts!!!
Yes, I dyed shirts for my whole class, my 7 chaperones and I!!! I used this awesome FREE pack by Laura Candler!!!

They are so easy to make and they turned out so so so cute! I got plenty of compliments from everyone!
I had asked my whole team if they wanted to do it {ALL 8 OF US} but only me and my neighbor did! I am sooo glad we did because it was so easy to identify my class at the huge zoo! :) I love them and I will make them every year! We will have another field trip in a couple of weeks and I can't wait to wear them again! I will post the directions of how I made them soon along with some class pictures at the zoo!
The weather was awesome! I am so glad we went yesterday because it was all rainy today in AZ! Perfect timing!
Here is a pic of a Kindergarten class on their way to lunch! I was on prep and heard a ton of screams! Then, I see a class of kinders heading to lunch. They were too cute because they still stayed in line!
Yes, that's my view from my classroom door! I love my classroom and its location. Do you see that parking lot with all of the cars??? Yeah, that's the teacher parking lot. I have to walk that far EVERY day! Another reason I love my classroom location is because the walk isn't THAT bad! Last year, my classroom was the furthest from the parking lot! Wooh! What a workout!
Wooh! I will leave you behind with a picture of me and my BESTEST friend in the WHOLE world! I seriously love her so much! I don't know where I would be without her!! :)
Sorry it's blurry but that's us! She is wearing the black dress... Oh So Pretty!

    1. Thank you!
      I am at a very big school! The building adjacent to the parking lot is actually another school! I am at the primary and the other one is the intermediate!
      There are over 700 kiddos in my school alone, K-3!!!
      There are 9 kinder classes, 8 first, 7 second, and 7 third grade classes! We are huge!!
      Thanks for following!

  3. Oh fun! I want to tie dye socks for my volleyball teams!
