Two Little Ladybugs...


...because tomorrow is my two month LID anniversary. I'm blogging about it today because with this being the first week of school, I was afraid I might forget all about it once I get back to work.

Two months have passed easily. Going back to work and starting another master's class next month will surely help to pass the time.

I'm thinking I might implement a visual way to keep track of the months I've waited in my classroom. I could add a ladybug to a spot on the wall for each month that has passed. I think my students would like that, too. I'll let you know what I come up with. Looks like I'll be going to the teacher supply store today. They usually have bug themed cut outs for bulletin boards...

    Congrats on the 2 month anniversary! I'm almost at 3 and it seems to have flown by. Let's hope the rest of the wait goes quickly as well.... but I doubt it will.

    Great idea! The kids WILL love that. You should do some graphing and polls with them in the spring. :)
    Have a terrific first day tomorrow! I'll pray for you if you pray for me!

    I love the idea of having your school kids share in your wait. Great idea. Congrats on having two months knocked out.

    Thanks for your kind words on my blog. I agree, nurses & teachers do have a lot in common. Funny, I majored in Elem Ed when I went to college (many moons ago) - ended up Liberal Arts though.

    Congrats on passing two months. It is fun to look back and realize that some time has gone by and you even that much closer to finding Jillian!

    The classroom looks great. Hope you have some great students and a good school year ahead!

    You have such a cool job! I always thought I'd be a teacher when I was younger, but instead I process and monitor contracts all day long...don't know what the heck happened!

    I love your ladybug tracking idea. Should be fun for you and the kids! Gee, I wonder how that would go over here in my cubicle. ;)

    What a great idea. I am trying to come up with a way of counting with my own kids. That may work here as well.

    Happy 2 months!! I am kicking around the idea of letting my sudents in on the adoption, but I'm still not sure when I will actually do it. I like the ladybug countdown idea...I may have to borrow it if that's okay!:)
    Best of luck today on your first day back!
