It's That Time of Year....

The first day of school!! So exciting, nerve wracking and fun all rolled into one crazy day. The big boys started First grade a couple weeks ago and we decided to put them in separate classes. I think this was definitely a great decision. They get along, they have their OWN space and they are happy to see each other at the end of the school day. Here is a photo from their first day:

Here is Luke:

Here is Tyler:

They have been having a great time and learning a lot! They really like their teachers and they have been doing really good in class! I am a proud mama!!

I like to do a little teacher is the newest version of the "Teachers Survival Kit":
Here is the poem:

Almonds when your class is making you feel a little nutty

Band-Aids for when things get a little rough

Chewing gum to help you stick to it

Crayons to color your day bright and cheerful

Eraser to remind you everyone makes mistakes

Lifesavers for when you’ve had one of those days

Paperclips to hold it all together

Pencil to “write your wrongs”

Rubber band to remind you to be flexible

Shiny penny to remind you that each will shine in his or her

own special way

Starburst to give you a “burst” of energy when you need it

Tissues to wipe away the tears…yours and theirs

Toothpick to help you “pick” out the good qualities in

others and yourself.

Happy Stamping,
