I AM BACK! I am still here!

Saturday, August 11, 2018

Just wanted to let my spark friends (especially the Teddy Bears) that I am still here and trying to get back to some routine. Since the beginning of July but specifically the last few weeks have been very busy for me.

First my MIL's surgery and I was spending all of my time with her. Then my oldest son comes to visit to say goodbye to his brother and spend some time with us and finally we had to fly to California to drop off my youngest son as he starts his next chapter in life. emoticon

Finally I come back home and right away I return to work setting up my classroom, meetings and so much to do before the first day of school. emoticon emoticon emoticon Well that day arrived and on August 8th I met my new recruits ...I mean students emoticon I am teaching 2nd graders and they were all so eager and happy to start. I must say that I had a great first week but I was so completely worn out by Friday that I just came home and practically passed out on the couch. They are still so needy at this age that it wears you out but I do love it!!!

So due to all of this I have not been as active on the team but I hope to fall back into the routine at some point and continue to participate on the challenge and with all my friends!

So I will be trying to stop by and check what I have been missing these last few weeks!!
Special thanks to Pat (INSIGHT62) who as really stepped up and helped me out!! Thanks to Cathy (Cate), Kathy (Pace), MaryAlice and Peggy (Grandp). emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love those first few grades! They are so eager. My older grandson just finished 2nd and is starting 3rd in a few weeks. With babysitting just 2 boys that wipes me out, I can only imagine a whole classroom of that energy.

    Teaching is a vocation that is not for me! I love reading books with teachers in them!

    That is good news that your classroom is filled with good kids. I can't imagine what it's like to teach that age group. A mixture of wanting to pull your hair out mixed with a room filled with little smiles and eager minds. You'll get settled into your routine soon enough. What is amazing is you've been faced with so much stress this summer and yet your scale holds steady at your maintenance weight. That says a lot about you. What a success you are!!! You are a good example for the Teddy Bears, so you've contributed in more ways than you know.
