Day 1

The First Day of School... words that bring fear/relief/worry/anxiety/elation/optimism/etc.....

I have been the student on the FDoS 17 times. I have now been the teacher on the FDoS 11 times. I still get nervous~ what's up with that???

BigGirl did GREAT today~ I was so proud of her. She got right out of bed at 6:30 with no complaints, got dressed, did her OWN hair (?!), ate breakfast (with help- she is The Slowest Eater Alive), and was ready to go at 7:15. Mondays are usually my only day at the different school, and B will be taking her, but I dropped her off on my way today. She did let me walk her up the hall, but I just hugged and left and she was fine. One of her bff's from last year is in her class and they discovered that they had both brought Clorox wipes and High School Musical Kleenex, so she was dandy after that!! I headed off to my other school with only a small tear!!

I got lots accomplished today, so I was pretty proud of me too. Got my freaking ridiculously difficult schedule figured out and emailed to the lead teacher, paperwork prepared to be sent home by classroom teachers, parent meeting planned, and spreadsheets updated. Tomorrow thru Friday I'm at my base (aka: favorite) school doing the same thing!


BigGirl's report on her day~ it was great. Teacher~ nice. Teacher assistant~ great. The best part~ not having to miss out on any playtime because she did not get in trouble. AMEN!! She did say that she talked a lot, but apparently not too much!


You know those *watch me grow* pictures that you're supposed to do every year on the child's birthday (like in your wedding gown or daddy's football jersey or something). Here's our version on the bench in front of school every FDoS. Here's Kindergarten vs. 1st grade:




The bench already looks a little smaller...

1 day down, 179 to go til summer!!!

Glad everything went so well on your first day of school!! Big Girl looks so cute on that bench. That's a really good idea. I should do that too!
