First Day of School

My feet are killing me. I need to wear sneakers to school everyday. My class is nice...I think we'll get along very nicely. I did have one student tell me that he thought it "sucked" that I was making him write on the first day of school. I'm sorry?? I'm not allowed to ask you to write me a letter on the first day of school? I'm in charge do what I say!

I've been away from my blog for a while....I've been so busy getting ready for school. I spent the whole day in my classroom on Friday getting ready for today, it was worth it. Today did go very smoothly, thanks to all my planning. I actually over-planned and ran out of time at the end of the day. Tomorrow is more of the same, getting to know you games and maybe a math lesson. I'm going to pass out books and lay down the law on some things.

In family news...Dougie LOVES his new baby sitter. He can't wait to get out of the car in the morning to play with "the kids" and yesterday he cried when I picked him up! Ummm...isn't is supposed to be the other way around? Isn't he supposed to cry when I leave in the morning?? Oh well, I'm just happy he likes his sitter, it's very hard leaving him everyday, but this year is going to go by fast, so I'm not TOO worried about it.

Time to head to bed...I'm exhausted! I wish I could stay up to watch the RNC, I really want to see Palin talk (Let's see what she says about Obama tonight! Bring it!) , but I neeeeeed my sleep. I'll read about it tomorrow.

Night, Night!
