I survived the first day of school today. I love seeing the familiar faces mixed in with the new. I love when my former students stop by for a hug and to say hello. I love our early childhood team. I love the look of wonder on the children’s faces as they enter their classroom for the first time. I love showing the lessons for how to be at school…lining up, grace and courtesy, how to use the bathroom, how to greet one another…You name it; we present it. I love being able to assure the Moms and Dads that their children will be okay. I love how everything is new and exciting for these 4 and 5 year olds.
Some of my favorites from today…
One little guy insisted on going barefoot. “But, Ms. Katie, I was barefoot all summer.” I had to be the bad guy and inform him that yes, we wear shoes in kindergarten.
When I asked one of my girls to please stop talking at circle time, she informed me that she was, “just trying to have a faaaaabuloussssssss day.”
And as I built the pink tower, cube by cube, one of my boys asked (over and over…and over again), “Now do you kick it over?”
Ahhh, kindergarten. I love you.
I took a 2 hour nap when I got home this afternoon. I must have been whooped, judging by the amount of drool on my pillow. Just being honest.
I cannot wait for Parenthood, Modern Family, and the New Girl. Love, love, love those shows…
I love this post on one of the blogs I read. It made me bawl.
“Our family is not what I could have ever pictured but it’s perfect beyond anything I could have imagined. I don’t know what yours will look like, friends, but I have to, have to, have to believe that it will be perfect. Perfect for you.”
Going to bed shortly…I forgot how soon 6 am comes.
