School Time!

Every August I start getting excited for back to school time! Then I remember that I'm not going back to school! I really miss the first weeks of teaching school; new kids, new supplies, and new clothes! I still have crazy strong urges to buy stacks of folders when they go on sale for $0.10 and those great kid scissors! I also need new cute pencils and cool erasers for my prize box. I miss the smell of rubber cement and Sharpies! I need to write names on folders and notebooks and label everything! At least C-man is starting preschool in about a week! ..Alas..if only teachers could choose their own hours huh?

The beginning of the year is pretty fun, but... you get to stay home with 2 cute boys. I would choose that over teaching almost any day. :)

I'm glad you've joined the now and started blogging. Tell Bruce it's cool to blog. We've got to get together sometime soon.

Well its official, school started! I can always send you a package of stuff to label and correct if you really are missing it!

Hi, Valerie~ your little family is so cute! You haven't changed one bit- I wish I could say the same!

I am like that too! I always want to buy new school supplies and I am not even a teacher! I just have to settle for walking down the isle looking at all the pretty new pencils, folders, erasers, notebooks...

I hear you - school beginning is so fun. I bet you just loved teaching school to those little ones. I went into Sierra's class each week to help and it always made my day. It made me want to be an elementary school teacher!

Oh, if only we could choose our own hours. I would so totally choose the graveyard shift of first grade. . .
