Welcome to 1st Grade

Well, it’s back to work!!! We (the teachers) started back to school Monday and the kids start this coming Monday. I’ve been working like a mad woman trying to get everything organized and ready to go on that first day of school.

It is SO hard to believe this summer is over. This has been the best summer I’ve had so far (as a teacher). I got to go on 2 amazing trips, decorate my house (a little), and just relax. I also didn’t have to completely do or redo my classroom this year (Thank the Lord!)

Last night was Meet the Teacher night so I got to see about half my students. Most of them brought their school supplies so I got all that organized today. Right now, I have 19 students…I’m sure that will change come Monday.

Here’s a look at all my hard work so far….
Switching gears....take a look at my beautiful hibiscus!!! I love hibiscus ~ they are my favorite summer flower.

The Wild Man

For the past 2 days I’ve had the privilege of babysitting my youngest nephew Gavin. We have had a fun time together but he has wiped me out!!! Yesterday we went to the park, McDonald’s, Sam’s and Wal-Mart. Today we’ve just played around the house. I’m so blessed to have such wonderful kids in my life.
