Bye, Bye Summer

Well, summer break is officially over for me. I went back to work on Monday. The girls' first day is Monday the 22nd. I am excited about the upcoming year. I will be team teaching with two other ladies. This is something new for us in 1st grade but hopefully it will be less stressful with our curriculum. I am sad to see summer gone for many reasons.
Grilling and smores

I'll miss my baby boy, Raider during the day. Hopefully Nanis will come get him at lunch and keep him until I can pick him up.
I will miss pool parties

Kyli and Kenna with cousins, Ethan and Kate
I will miss pedicures. Although, it is so stinkin hot I'll probably be able to wear flip flops all year long.
I am so very blessed to have a job where I get some time off with my family. Teaching is a very hard job and by the end of the school year my patience is nonexistence. Kids these days are not as well behaved and there is a huge lacking of parent support. Class sizes are too large. I have 22 kids this year. It will be a challenge. I will miss my girls, Raider, hanging by the pool, staying in my tshirt and shorts all day, my lazy days, pony tails, etc. I am thinking though that I am not fit for staying home because I was getting bored and impatient with my girls. I am ready for a new year and all the great things to come! Bye, Bye summer! See you next year!


  1. What a fab summer we had!! It flew by!!!! Good luck this year!!!

  2. I hope your school year is off to a great start! It gets so busy so quick! I'm so glad I'm not in the classroom right now. My daughter's 1st grade classroom has 23... that is just too many, but she is so blessed with an amazing teacher! In my opinion there is not a better job for a Mommy though! :)
