Crunch Time

For many of you fellow blogger friends, I know you feel the same way when it gets closer and closer for school to start. AHHH!! I cannot believe school is starting in two weeks!! Yikes! This summer has flown by and I am so happy with how it went. I would say I travelled much more this summer than I have any other summer while teaching. It is not typical to spend a few weeks in China!! However, I call myself a slacker this summer because I hardly went into school and did things over the break. Years prior I was in there almost every week. It feels good to take a good long break and enjoy my vacation.

After returning back from Utah this past week, I thought it might be good to go into school and see what needs to be done. Well come to find out I have been a HUGE slacker. All the classrooms down my hall and where I looked, look almost done!! Yikes that is when I knew it was time for me to kick my butt in gear.

I love going back to school! Like others of you I am sure you feel the same as teachers. You get to start over each year with a new set of everything. It is a great change. I am excited to start next year. I think I have a great group this year with only 22 kiddos. That won't last long! I am continuing my Ellsworth Campsite throughout my classroom which I just love. I have done some cute things with the theme. I will have to get some pictures up soon! Good luck to my other teacher friends both in Arizona and Utah. Your crunch time is getting closer!

Good luck with this year. Everything will come together and be great. I know you and everything you do is fabulous. There are a lot of things I miss about teaching, but the stress is not. :P

Tell me about it. I have been so busy and sick with morning sickness and other things this summer that I haven't been out to the school yet!!! All my desks and everything are still on the tile!! I am feeling the stress too!!!

I just got the keys to my classroom and am going there to work for the 1st time today! I am also scared about teaching a new grade!! But we will all pull through... we always do!
