I've been feeling so sad this week that I haven't been able to sit down and devote any time to blogging and updating about what has been going on in our life recently. As I've been transitioning into my new life as a preschool teacher I've found less and less time to actually sit down at my computer and do more than just read through a few facebook notifications. My hope is that once things settle down a bit and the newness wears off I'll be able to come back to my normal routine! In the mean time, I'm exhausted, and it's all I have in me to just lay in bed and watch some Olympics before I drift off haha.
Tonight I just wanted to write a little note of thanks for all of you who wished me luck on my first day of school today! It really meant a lot to get through a hectic day and be able to read all the sweet things from friends and family. You guys are really the best! It's going to be such an awesome year... lots more responsibility, and a much greater challenge than I've gotten to have with other jobs, but it's exactly what I wanted and needed. I'm excited about the team I have behind me, and the kiddos that I have in my class are just too cute to handle... can't wait to share them all with you!
In the mean time, here is a photo of some of the decorating work that I did in the classroom over this past week... it was a long, tedious process but getting to see how excited all the kids were for their new room made it all worth it! Again, thank you friends for all your kind words!
On another note... how in the WORLD did August get here so fast?! May, June and July have literally flown by!
