Nothing like the office calling you to tell you that you have a very large delivery in the office. I don’t think I quite realized what 331 books would actually look like. It too me, eight students, and three other teachers to haul the 14 boxes to my classroom. I am beyond grateful to be able to share the 2nd and 3rd books from The Heroes of Olympus and Kane Chronicles series. Thank you First Book for making this happen!

I love days off from school and being able to paint :)


My principal sent me this text today that she got from one of my former student’s mother.

Matt Smith today at New Orleans Comicon.

That is totally my picture! My husband painted it as an anniversary gift to me and so I would have something cool and original for Matt to sign on Saturday. :) http://mrsharpole.tumblr.com/post/76028289455/my-husband-spent-many-many-days-painting-this-as

My husband spent many, many days painting this as an anniversary gift and Matt Smith signed it today. :)


So this just happened…my face definitely matched what I was feeling on the inside….majorly freaking out! BUT I just met Matt Smith! :)


So I decided to do a little painting during this snow day! I’m thinking about getting Matt Smith to sign it next week when I meet him at Comic Con! :)


FINALLY created my outside bulletin board! 2014 Resolutions on one side and the Academic Victors from my district on the other side!


There are not enough words to express my excitement!!! This definitely made it easy to go back to school today! :)
