School, School, School, School, School
That's all there is everywhere I turn!!!!!! I keep running into these parents in the store who look at their children running wild and say " I can't wait for school to start, only 1 more week." I just reply, "Oh, me neither, I'm a teacher." HAHA I really can wait, but in a way I am getting ready for the big day. I don't know if it is really because I have no choice, or I am ready to see my new little group of rug rats and to get started on all the wonderful things that we will learn together this year. I have many wonderful ideas and I am always excited to start the new year with a fresh bunch of elementary minds. I made it to school for one whole day this past week and I accomplished most of what I went there for. I set up all of the desks and put my bulletin board up in the hall and got my "mind" and desk ready. I still have a lot of things to do next week and all the while that I am in those STUPID inservice meetings, I will be thinking of everything I could be doing in my classroom!! Anyway, ready or not, HERE I COME!!!
Now to add a sad note. Walking down the school supply aisle at the local Wally World, that I hate, I'm having very mixed emotions. No one at my house will be needing any of this junk for public school anymore, man is that a relief, or is it?, my little Holly bug will just be going back to college and learning all the neat tricks to cosmetology, so that she can go out and make all of us beautiful!!! I'm just hoping she does not chop her hair off again at the beginning of class. Just kidding , isn't she beautiful!!
So back to those feelings, you know, the sad ones when your youngest child is getting ready to leave the nest and the extremely happy ones, those of great accomplishment when your youngest child graduates from high school. OMG, these are really weird feelings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Life is so amazing.
