I also found a new supply store. I have sort of been disappointed with my teacher store here at home. I went today looking for frog stuff and I came out empty-handed and frustrated. All I found were bits and pieces of frog stuff and nothing that looked like a full set. I could find full sets of fuzzy monsters and even owls that everyone is fawning over but no FROGS. Now don't get me wrong I love owls... but when I am looking for something specific and all I find are owls, it can be very frustrating. Many times during my time in the store I questioned my theme like "should I be doing owls instead?" But then I had to stop myself and say NO!! I have to go against the grain and stick to what I like such as my blue and green FROG theme. But I bet you want to hear about that teacher supply store and not about my frustrations. It is called MPM School Supplies and the prices seem pretty discounted. I have been in the market for a new pocket chart and besides the Target Dollar spot charts (which are too small) I have found them to be about $25 and up. But here at MPM I found a standard chart discounted at $17.36. Yippee!! I may have new charts this year after all. So go check them out if you are in the market for new supplies like we all are every year.

I know I should be enjoy these last few days of my summer break but I am freaking out because I haven't found anything to put up in my room yet. I haven't finished my crate seats... I didn't have the right staples to fit into my staple gun:-( But I will finish!! I have to finish or I won't have enough seating in my room. So much to do. But some of my teammates will be venturing to the Lakeshore outlet in MD on Saturday and maybe hitting IKEA on the way back IF we haven't spent all our money in the Lakeshore store.
