Work and No Time

I have been working an insane amount of hours trying to prepare for those little 2nd graders and their parents. My job is full time this year and wow, it is hard getting acclimated to a new school and learning the new curriculum, procedures, etc. The school is highly regarded and the principal has very high expectations of everyone, which is a little pressure but somehow I will survive, right? Today was the first day of school and the kiddos are so cute and clueless! They were so quiet and looked so scared this morning.
I have been so busy that I feel like I have no life right now and am exhausted. At least I have something to keep me busy! I had thought I was going to stay at home when we moved to CO but decided that I shouldn't be a stay at home mom to Molly. That does sound good at the moment though because I miss the freedom I have in the summer. Maybe someday...

My first day with the preschoolers was Monday and by the end of the day I felt like I had been whisked around by a tornado. Yesterday was a little more calm. :)

I'm glad to hear your first day went well Melissa. I don't know about Molly, but I know Dozer would love a stay at home doggy mommy. He thinks I should work from home if I just can't stay home. :) Happy new school year!

It is so hard to get back into the swing of things. I have taken a nap 3 days in the past week when I got home from school. It does help being busy....

What a blessing to have such a well behaved class! 2nd grade is my favorite grade to teach (well Kindergarten is fun too : ) There aren't enough good teachers out there. Those kids are blessed to have you!

Good luck with your first week at school! Hope you are finding ways to relax and have a laugh. Can't imagine how hard this has been on you.
