It’s spring break!! Today was just about as crazy as you can get for elementary school. Indoor recess + the day before spring break + an assembly + 2 birthday parties + being 8 years old = so much noise and chaos. I’m so dang happy that we made it to the end of this week.

Here’s how I fueled for the day:

Green love. Whirled into yumminess with my new favorite kitchen gadget.

  • ½ banana
  • 1 cup frozen spinach
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup applesauce

Lunch was leftovers, per usual.

Plus a handful of colorful friends…

And now I’m just counting down the minutes (38 to be exact) until I can blow this pop stand and head on home for a weak of rest and relaxation. (I’m at my second job of answering phones in the office after school…obviously being very productive)

However, one little thing has put a damper on my excitement…

This is why I hate springtime – at least in Colorado. It’s our snowiest season. It started this morning around 6am, and hasn’t stopped. This picture was taken out of my classroom window around noon, so I’m sure there is even MORE white stuff out there now.

In the 3rd grade world…

There were two birthday celebrations today – and these treats were dumped on my desk.


I TRY not to be too judgmental and “healthier than thou” when it comes to birthday treats because (1) I obviously love cake and (2) It’s a BIRTHDAY – but really…what could possibly have inspired parents to buy that neon pink cupcake (that stained everyone’s mouth, hands, and desks)?? That cupcake is ridiculous – the frosting was so rubbery and gross. I didn’t taste it, and when the kids asked me why I threw it in the trashcan without my typical one bite, I responded “there is no way that was real food…”
