Holiday & Special Days Calendar Cards


Aaaahhh Summer! The time when our teacher brain is supposed to shut off.......NOT!

This is my 3rd week of summer and I have to remind myself these days to relax a little. Although I had an extremely rough school year, and I've been looking forward to summer all year long, now that it's here, I'm actually really anxious to get back into my classroom! Weird huh?! I can't explain it at all!!

I spent the first two weeks of my break moving classrooms. I was extremely frustrated having to clean out not only my exisiting classroom, but the classroom I was moving into as well. The previous teacher resigned mid- year and left a bunch of stuff I had to trash. I must have made three trips to our dumpster! If you follow me on Instagram, I shared a trashbag of brand new hardcover books I found stuffed at the back of her closet.

At that moment I felt like crap. It wasn't so much about the books, it was about how I've been complaining all along while not understanding her struggles. I took it as God saying to me "Here you are whining about doing a little work and look at this nice gift this lady left you." There had to have been over 30 books in that bag. Brand spankin' new! I took a moment to say a prayer for her, and ask for forgiveness for my actions and my tongue. Lesson learned!! #imnotperfect

Anyhow, I finally made the time to sit and finish this calendar cards pack that I started a couple months ago. I wanted to make my own because I became tired of constantly searching for specific cards I needed and what was being sold at my local teacher store just did not fit my needs.


I was really bummed when I realized I left my laminator at school and we are locked out for the summer!! We're actually not allowed back in until two weeks prior to the start of the school year. But I've already printed these bad boys and now I'm just trying to find someone to help me cut them....hahaha!!
