Well I have survived.

I have made it through the first 3 days and open house!

I have a great class! I definitely have a few challenges but I have to say it is SO SO much easier than last year!

Celebrations today:
Little "Blue" used kleenex 5 times!!!! This is HUGE progress. He has been using either his finger or his tongue-Totally disgusting!

Little "Magenta" was NICE to other students-had some bullying issues the first two days.

oh and Little Mr. "Green" is loving talking to me. He gets a lot of speech therapy. It took me 2 days to figure out what kind of pet he had. It's a Lizard-but when he says it lizard it sounds like "Little" We celebrated for sure when I figured that one out!

This is already shaping up to be a great year. Some of the other staff members were talking to my mom (who also works in my building) and were saying that they felt bad because my class was really loaded. Made me feel good because I was thinking I had it pretty easy:)

Kindergarten last year taught me so much!

Hope your year is going great too! I promise I will post pictures of what we have been up to soon.

Happy (almost) Friday!

Currently September already?!

I sort of can't believe it is already September! But then again I am ready for it. Tomorrow I start school! Can't wait to meet the rest of my little darlings and get the year off to a great start.

Here is my September currently.
1) My new teacher chair came from Ikea and I LOVE it! I love the color and how comfortable it is! Yesterday as I sat in my classroom and stressed a bit I was loving it even more.
2) I am so so happy that I made the choice to live at the beach and stuck to it. I now have my dream job and I live in a place where other people come for vacation. Can't get much better than that!
3) I bought cowboy boots a few weeks ago. I still absolutely love them. Super comfortable and super cute. Love 'em.

Have a fabulous Labor Day! And for those of you who start school tomorrow like I do have a great first day!

Hoping I'm not too exhausted to post tomorrow.

First day jitters two days early and a question

I am already getting the jitters about the first day! And we don't start until Tuesday! I am sitting in my's ready to go... But I am still nervous! I know it will all be fine but my nerves seem to disagree.

Super sweet story for you. Got an email from the parent of one of my kinders last year. She said "A had a great first day! But then she got tears in her eyes when she told me you were not teaching there anymore."
Of course this made me cry!

Question: our school is looking to get a new laminator... What one does your school have? Does it work well? Any information on other laminators?
Ours went belly up last week and left everyone in a pickle. So any information would be great!

Time to go enjoy my last two days of summer! And hey the sun is actually out!!!
