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!
