So it's back to school for me next week. I can't believe how fast the summer has gone. I guess I really only had a month of summer because of summer school and summer rec. Oh well, it was still a fun summer. I am excited about starting school this year. I have fun first day activity planned for my students. Although recent events at my school have put a damper on things, I know this will still be a great year. I am continuing to keep a small class size (only 9 kids) and this will be another year of more girls than boys (6 out of nine). After my first year of 2 girls and 5 boys, I think I deserve it! Hopefully there won't be as much drama as I had last year! I am excited to start my 3rd year of teaching as my principal says this is the year where I've got everything under control (hopefully).
My kids start school on the 11th and I am excited for them as well. Hannah's in 1st grade and Josh will start kindergarten (sniffle, sniffle). Josh is so excited to start school. He just wants to read like his big sister! I hope I don't cry too badly on the first day because I tear up every time I think about it. I will be sure to take pictures and post them later.
