I'm still here.

Oh hey! Remember me? 
I'm Elyse.  I used to blog here, but then the end of the school year got crazy busy and my one week blog break turned into a two week blog break.  I have been feeling like sleeping is more important than blogging, so instead of getting up early to blog, I sleep for an extra hour.
I'm ok with that decision.
There are 6 six days of school left (after today). 
Where did the time go people!?!
I'm not sure what I am more excited about, summer or the last week of school where we get to ORGANIZE ALL THE THINGS.  It's seriously my favorite part of the year.
But I'm also dreaming about a summer of pools, cocktails, and painting.  Words do not explain my excitement. 
My body has actually developed a rash from excitement.  A distress signal if you will.
But really it's probably just poison ivy...all over me.  So itchy.
I think that's enough manic thoughts for one post. 
Have a great weekend!
I'll be back in full force soon!

I almost killed a family of baby bunnies.

I'm a little late today, but I'm linking up with some lovely ladies for a weekend recap!
Dateless in Dallas
This happened Thursday but it's just too funny not to share!  My first graders were using chalk pastel for the first time, so naturally they had it all over their hands and arms.  This darling sneezed into her hands and got it all over her face.  So funny!
This weekend was pretty uneventful, but the weather was wonderful!  Friday night we sat around the fire-pit and enjoyed the evening!

Saturday we did lots of work around the house.  I was raking some leaves out of our front landscaping when a baby bunny jumped out.  *Cue loud shriek*  Luckily before I started raking again I noticed the pile of leaves was kind of moving, so I raked it gently, instead of with full force like the first time I raked a bunny.  Out jumped three more baby bunnies.  *Cue loud shriek again*  I'm sure my neighbors (who were also working in their front yard) thought I was crazy. 

The bunnies made me so sad!  They were so cute and scared, and they didn't know where to go since I had destroyed their home!
Sunday it was sunny and 83, so I met my mom at the pool.  First pool day of the "summer"!

I came home to find one of my bunny friends still sitting on our porch.  Looking lost.  I was dying on the inside from all of the cute-ness.  I just wanted to pick it up!  I chopped up some carrots and spinach and put it near him so he would have something to nibble on, but he did not accept my offering.  I also tried to pet him.  He didn't like that very much either. 

Told you my weekend was exciting! 
I have a super busy week this week, so you may not be hearing much from me!
How was your weekend?
