Did I tell you guys about the petition they started? Towards the end of school year, 100+ kids got together and started a petition for me to move up as a 7th grade teacher. It was very, very sweet. I got numerous emails over the summer asking if I was planning on becoming a 7th grade teacher for the 2015-16 school year, and I had to tell them no. When I saw the kids once school started, one of them said, “BUT WE STARTED A PETITION! THIS WAS A DONE DEAL!” I had to explain that that’s not how a petition works. His response? “Ugh. I hate the government.” Hahahahaha
I taught 7th grade two years ago, and woooooo! Seventh graders ain’t no joke, ya’ll! They are the middle children of middle school. Sixth graders are the babies, while 8th graders are the older children. Sixth graders still love you a little tiny bit, and many 8th graders are slightly more mature. Seventh grade? Jesus be a fence of protection! I’m still suffering from 7th grade PTSD! ;0)

I’m wearing a dress a bought from Amazon last week, a clutch purse I bought from the Alameda Flea right before my wedding three years ago, and some suuuuuper old black sandals (similar below).
