Normally, by this time, I am ready to go back to work. I have always loved my summer time at home with my children, but this year has been the best. I have loved every minute of it. In the past, I would start to get excited about planning a new year with my first graders. This year, I don't seem to have that excitement. I really do love teaching, but I have discovered that I love being at home more. I am hoping that when I spend a little more time in my room, that my "love for a new school year" will return.
Charlie and Annie went with me to school to help set up my classroom. I am not sure that they helped very much. In fact, they MAY have made a bigger mess!
At least they played good together. I think I will have to find a sitter for them when I go back.
