It's hard to believe that summer vacation is over for me! I have spent the last several weeks getting ready for school and have been at school every night this week until about 11 p.m. making sure things were ready.
I went back on Monday. We had workshops all day. We have a new system called Infinite Campus that I was trained on this summer. 2 other girls and I had to train our co-workers how to use it during our workshop day. I HATE speaking in front of people. Thank goodness one of my co-workers did all the speaking. She did great. I got home and was getting my son ready for football practice. I looked at my youngest son. His eye was swollen! I seriously thought it had to be a joke. Goop was dripping from them. They were watery. I ended up calling the doctor. I had to bring him in. He had pink eye!!! "Seriously?!?" was all I could think. He wasn't sick ALL summer long and the first day I am back he gets sick! I couldn't stay home because I had way too much to do. Luckily my mom watched the boys on Tuesday.
Tonight was our Open House. I found out about an hour before it that I had a new name on my list. Thank goodness I checked my email or I would have been caught off guard with her. I was able to get everything ready for her. I absolutely LOVE my class. They seem like the sweetest group of kiddos ever!!! If today was any indication of our year...it is going to be fantastic! Every single one of these kids were so sweet. I can't wait to spend the rest of the year with them.
I got everything in my room ready about an hour before our Open House started. I was sweating as I was running around trying to finish everything! I did it! I work best this way too...right up until the end. I got more done in the last hour than I did all day! I am going to share some pictures that I took. I still have to work on my desk area....but...I am happy with the way my room turned out. I have NEVER had a theme or color them. This year because of all you and your cute blogs and great ideas, I decided I'd try one.
I am happy with the way it looks right now! It feels homey!
After our Open House I got to see the last half of my son's first football game. It was fun watching him play against another city. It was hotter than blazed...close to 100 heat index. Many of the school in Minneapolis are closed tomorrow and Friday due to the heat. We are breaking records here and many of their schools are not air conditioned. Yuck!
I hope you are all enjoying your first weeks with your kiddos. :)
