Yep...it's that time of year again! Last week was spent setting up my room and making it look all warm and cozy for my little first graders. This week is full of meetings and last minute room prep before meeting the kiddos on Thursday afternoon. I'm actually far enough ahead in getting my room ready that I've been working on lesson plans and making copies for next week. I've never been this far ahead! But I'm really excited for the start of a new school year!
There's something about fresh decorations, sharpened pencils, and newly laminated name tags that I just love! Lame? Perhaps. But I'm ok with it.
Running has been going pretty horribly. By horribly I mean, I just haven't been. I did run once last week. 2 miles. But it was a fast two miles. And a fast two miles is just as hard for me as a slow 6 miles. I also did pretty well with keeping up with T25. This week so far? No bueno. Last night I stayed at school until almost 7 and was exhausted. Today, 6 and then had to go grocery shopping. C'est la vie! Sometimes something has to give and until I get back into the swing of things, I guess that'll have to be it.
Sad to see summer end but ready for the adventure of a new school year. This just might be the make it or break it year for me and teaching....
