First day....

Today is the first day of school for TEACHERS and KIDS!  Today I am not going back to work...Last week I didn't have to work in my classroom while all my friends did.  People keep asking me if I am SAD?  Hum let me see.....

1) I get to enjoy this smiling face every single day.

2) I get to see Miss H learn new things every moment of every day.

3) I get to love and kiss on her any second I want.

Do I need to answer that question?  I am pretty sure you can see I am NOT sad about my missing the FIRST day of school.  I am sad all my friends are going back to work.  I mean who else will we do lunch with now?  I am sad to miss the social aspect of talking with my teacher friends and such, but we will see them at choir practice.

I'm pretty sure Chris isn't sad either as I have not ONCE hit a back to school sale.  You see office supplies are one of my favorite things along with Sharpies.  I have not once thought about going to a sale and buying any of them.  He couldn't be happier since every year has consisted of me asking him to come help get the right color or number of folders each year.

However, I am excited for all my friends to begin their school year.  I know it will be wonderful, as I have sat and listened to all the rosters as you prepare.  You guys will do an amazing job and touch many lives this year.  Good luck and let us know if you need any extra hands.  We are always willing to come help out!

We are totally in the same boat!! I am also staying home this year, after 3 years of teaching. I saved a lot of money not having to buy back to school things, as I always want every type of organizational tote and box in existance. :) And while Im not missing being there b/c of the school aspect, I do miss my friends I worked with!! Hopefully we'll stay in contact though. :)
