Teacher Outing!

Happy December to you all!  I want to start off by saying that I am ready for the beginning of 2012 to get here!  This first part of the school year has been exciting, crazy, busy, exhausting, etc.  If you are already a follower then you know that I started fourth grade this year, after teaching four years of second grade.  I have learned so much thus far from my students and my coworkers.  I have made some amazing new friends, who I am proud to call my fourth grade team.  I have so many exciting things to update you all on but I will spread it out over my next couple of posts.
Just last week I was able to spend time with some of my new fabulous friends outside of school.  I don't want to say they are "new" friends per say, but now that I spend everyday with them in our school building (upper grades are in a different building), I have gotten to know them a lot better and I have loved every second of it.  Not only have I made these amazing friendships but I have learned a lot about myself in the past five months working together.
My co-workers and I went to a Mixed Media Class at the Wine Palette here in N.C.  We wanted to stretch ourselves and do something outside of the box.  We all claim we are not artistic but, I think secretly we all really wanted to do some amazing art pieces.  A parents at our school was hosting the event and we went to support her and of course to have fun!
Here are a couple of photos from the event...

The event was planned from 7-9 and I didn't get home until 10:30ish.  We had a blast enjoying wine, snacks, and each others company.  I am thrilled beyond belief that I have gotten to know such amazing people in just a couple short months.  I am looking forward to many other outings with these ladies and getting to know them even better as the school year rolls on.
