...but just barely!
No, that's not totally true! I had my first day of school yesterday and I survived. But I was EXHAUSTED by the time it was over. Today went a lot more smoothly. I didn't have to check the schedule every second, I remembered some of the students names, I wasn't completely wiped out by the end of the day.
It is tough to be a teacher! I have been at school for the past week and a half every day for school or training, then I come home and work on lesson plans (oh, and let's be honest, some Olympic watching!).
I am teaching 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students--that's a lot of names to remember! My students are (for the most part) sweet. I can already tell I am going to have some students that will be a little bit of a handful. But I have my eye on them and we will nip that in the bud pretty quickly!

Check out Jack's new kicks! Couldn't you just eat him up in them?
We have gotten a good amount of stuff done around the house lately. Today we got our dining room chairs in. When I find a chance to breathe, I will post pics...I LOVE them!
