Today was the last day before Spring Break. Conferences are done, grades are starting fresh, and restless bodies are ready for some fun. This is when my cleaning begins. This is a time for fresh starts and I am jumping at the opportunity. Before leaving work, I sifted through paper and got friendly with the recycling bin. Desks were rearranged and furniture found new places to take root. I love coming back to a prepared classroom with some little changes.
My cleaning itch made it's way home with me too. I moved the boys furniture and gave them each their own personal space. Framed pictures will come next along with personal touches. It was like Christmas for them. Eyes lit up and the exploring began.
"Do I seriously get my own private space? The little ones won't be able to get my planes and Lego's?", was my oldest sons first reply.
"Mama, I have all my favorite toys in here.", burst my youngest.
They share a playroom together and have loved sharing the bunk beds but a change was needed. Sometimes a little rearranging goes a long way. Let the Spring cleaning begin!
