Changes in Life

Change is something we all have to face every now and then. I have some new changes on the blog and in life! What do you think of the new blog look? I have been wanting a new design for a few months now but I decided to bite the bullet and actually do something about it. I love the banner because I am huge quatrefoil lover! 

I still want to do a few minor changes, but so far I like it. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice on how do make the Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest Icons? I have some of they are all spaced a part and I am looking for them all to be side by side and easy to find. I would really like to find a somewhat cheap way to make them, if not free! So please let me know about that! :)

As far as life changes.. I start back to school with all teachers today. I have been on contract for a week already, but I have been working in my room putting up bulletin boards and working on the class's syllabuses. Here in Alabama we had a new law passed that school could not start until August 20th because they wanted people to still travel to Alabama to visit the beach and other venues. I must say I enjoyed the longer summer, although I did attend a lot of meetings. The only down side is that we lost a lot of our holidays and teacher work days because we are still getting out of school May 24th. I will miss sleeping in and going shopping, but I will be glad to get back in the routine and get everything going again. 
A few of the thing in my classroom.
I guess you can tell the themes are owls and chevron!
I just know that fall means football!! That is a whole other post in itself! 
I hopefully will get in the groove of posting. I will be going back to school to finish my certification, so I know it will be a busy first semester. Stay tuned to see my new nephew, pics of Polo and all the traveling I did this summer! 

Today I linked up with Melissa at the GFC Blog Hop so if you are visiting I am glad you stopped by! Make sure to follow and leave a comment and I will do the same on your blog!
