New School Year

Monday is going to bring a lot of new changes for our family.  Jack starts kindergarten, Ryan will be in second, and I will be a full time second grade teacher.  I haven't taught full time in six years.  I'm sure we'll have some adjusting to do, but we're also really excited for this year.  Jack was so happy to find out that he was in the "froggy" classroom and Ryan is thrilled that he is with his same teacher from last year, along with his friend Jaxon.  Thankfully Phil's job is the same so he can help the rest of us hold down the fort.  

Part of becoming a full time teacher again meant I had to move to a new classroom.  I had a lot of fun decorating my new room, but I sure missed my teaching partner!  It's a lot more work to do everything by yourself.  I wanted my surroundings to make me feel happy in my new home away from home as well as be inviting for my students.  I'm really happy with how my room looks and am excited to start a new year.
