Back to Work

After a long and lazy summer, I've headed back to work to teach third grade.  I went back on Tuesday and Wednesday for some meetings, but the kids come today.  I'm always so excited and nervous to meet my new class.  It's so strange and awkward at the beginning as we get to know each other, but by the end of the year we're like family.

And I have to say, that although I love summer, sleeping in, lounging by the pool, staying up late, eating dinner outside, and whatnot, I'm ready for it to be over.  I'm ready to go back to work and Isabella is ready to start school (today is her first day too squeeeeee!!!!).  I thrive as a working mom.  Some women were meant to stay home...they're natural at it.

Not me and for the first time in a long time, I don't feel the slightest bit guilty saying that.

The first week of school is the time I miss teaching the most. There's just so much positive energy and excitement and enthusiasm. I hope it goes well and you have a great class!
