What a day.
The first day of school is a fun one, always filled with jitters and anxiety. I can happily report that no children got lost or injured under my watch today. Let's hope we can keep that up all year.
This morning before leaving the house I made J take a first day of school picture of me. This is for you mom! I was actually inspired to do this when Lianna posted about her first day of school a few weeks ago on her blog.
As far as first day of school fashion goes amongst the 5th grade girls, here's what I gathered is in...lace leggings, colorful and printed knee high socks, and lots of skinny jeans. I doubt I'll fit into their cool club this year. No lacy leggings on these legs.
Among the 5th grade boys, shaggy hair and shouting out all the time seems to be cool. We're gonna have to nip that last one in the bud.
One other thing I want to mention about back to school is how happy I am to be reuniting with my pillow. I sleep so well during the school year. SO WELL. If a marching band were playing in the room, I'd likely sleep through it. Seriously. In the summer I sleep alright, but not a solid deep sleep like I get after a day of teaching. This is probably my favorite part about the year starting up again!
Happy sleeping and teaching!
