It's hard to believe that our summer is already over. We did pretty much exactly what I said we would...with the exception of going to the beach (which I'm super sad about!) It's ok though. We did get to do lots of swimming, puppy training, playing, taking trips to the library, eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (thanks to being on a tight budget), and best of all I got to spend a lot of time with my kiddos. So, all in all I'd say it was a win :)
I'm surprisingly ready to start school though. It will be good to change up our routine a bit. Liam will be splitting his time between Papa and daycare and we're excited for him. I think being around other kids will be fun for him and he will learn so much. He'll actually have the same teacher that Anne did at this age.
For the past two weeks I've spent as much time as possible working in my classroom and planning for this year. I am praying that it will be my best yet. I've got some really great 6th graders coming up that are smart, funny, and exciting to teach. (They were my 5th graders last year, so I already know them well.) And I'm hearing really good things about the 5th grade as well. So, I'm excited.
Not promising to keep cobwebs off this space over the next months...but I'm hoping to be back sooner than later!
I hope all of you back to schoolers have wonderful first days!!!
