first day of school!

Today was the first day of school!

I can’t even describe to you how exciting today was.  First of all, I actually slept last night.  It may have been the glass of wine I had before bed that helped me drowsily fall into my slumber, but either way, I slept soundly.  And then when I got up and I was rushing around this morning, even though my clothes were all laid out, my lunch was maid, and my coffee was already cold-brewed.

Getting to school, I was so nervous.  I had a lot of things to get done before the kids arrived, and not a lot of time to get it done.  I had butterflies, but at the same time I was totally wired.  I was singing in the hallway, and waiting at the door; I shook every kid’s hand as they walked in.  I was really excited.

The kids this year seem really nice.  Definitely a rowdy bunch, but I can’t wait to work with them this year.  I sense a lot of personality and charisma in this group.  I also think that this year is going to bring a lot of learning for me.  I feel very lucky and very fortunate for that.

J promised to take a picture of me this morning, for my first day of school, but he went back to bed before he could fulfill his promise.  So, I have no first day picture for you.  But, I wore a great navy blue dress with nude heels.  If I couldn’t wear my Charger gear, I at least wanted to wear my Charger blue!

So, to all my fellow teachers out there, I hope you all had a great first day.  And if you haven’t started yet, I hope your coming first day is amazing.  I hope your year is filled with happiness, joy, and amazing kids.  I hope you have great learning opportunities, passion in your classroom and practice, and hope for the future!  Happy first day of school, everyone!
