Yah, so it's been awhile. I guess I really did take a "summer break", LOL. So busy this summer and just enjoying my little girl so much. But now back to work..

I have to say, as much as I LOVE having 2 months off in the summer, having that long break and trying to get motivated to go back to work after that is really hard. I was DREADING going back to work this week and leaving Sophie. I have loved being at home with her so much this summer. She's become my "buddy" and I love just "her and me" time.

Tuesday, my first day back to work. I was DREADING it. But you know, wasn't so bad. Yes, it was 8 hours of listening to some lady talk about herself, but it's so funny how quickly you fit back into your "work mode".
Wednesday, meeting with the whole district, listening to our superintendent talk us up, then put us down. But then spent the rest of the day in my classroom setting up.

I'm starting off this year teaching full time since my teaching partner is still on her maternity leave until mid-October. The thought of teaching full time again, after not doing it for 2.5 years is a bit scary! But I'm also really looking forward to it. The last 2 years just about killed me. I am looking forward to a "Fresh start" and a new group of kids.

So on Wednesday, when the kids come in with their new supplies and with that excitement and nervousness in their steps, I will match those same feelings!
