For the past 2 weeks, I have come home each day and flipped a number on my school coundown (I'm now down to 51 days!)... This has become something that I REALLY look forward to... Yes, it reminds me that summer is almost here and I will once again have the time to do all the things I enjoy... But more than that, it reminds me that I've made it this far... I started at 176 days and am now down to 51... I feel accomplished, I feel productive... And for those of you who know me well, you know that those two words probably describe me and what I strive for best.
So now I've made another countdown (51 is still a lot of days, I needed a quicker ending point)... The countdown shown below is counting the days until Spring Break (yay!!!)... I used my super cute new font from Lettering Delights, PC Garden... I think I might actually take this one to school... I know my kids are all counting down the days, too... I had several students walk into my classroom today and say "Ms. Deslatte, I counted the days we have left until Spring Br--" and I very enthusiastically interupt them and say "15!"... But now the day is over and we have only 14 days until Spring Break... Happy crafting, all!
