After a wonderful summer off, today was the first day back to school. Quite honestly, I was dreading it. The butterflies in my stomach were eating me alive, but I feel so much better now that it is over. The kids all had a good day and like their teachers. They will have to get used to new schedules and changes from last year, but that is bound to happen every year.
(Just in case you were wondering, Catheryn never wears matching socks…)
My day went well, too. They did away with the LIbrary Aide position, so this year I am a Teacher’s Aide. I still have lunchroom and recess duty, but I will also be doing bulletin boards and teacher requests. I, too, have changes and a new schedule to get used to, but it should be a pretty good year.
I’m just happy to be rid of those butterflies!
