Where oh where did summer go!? I feel like it was just yesterday when I posted my first photo of the summer (9 weeks ago to be exact). My summer break has been such a wonderful time… I traveled all over to visit family and friends, I went to Asia for the first time, I was reunited with my sister after being apart for a year (she was living in Asia), I started planning my wedding, and I spent some nice time working on Rhyme & Reason. Overall, it was fabulous but flew by too quickly!
I’m super duper über excited to share that I’m moving from teaching Second Grade to teaching Kindergarten this year. Today is my first day on the new job, holy smokes. My kiddos will start next week so I’ve got a full week of prep, planning, and meetings ahead of me. I’m so excited to meet my 22 new little friends in a few days because I think it’s going to be a wonderful year. I’m very ready for the challenge of teaching a new grade level and a new age group. Let’s face it, Kindergartners are so darn cute! I don’t feel anxious today but I know I will next Sunday night and Monday when my students start. Teachers get scared for the first day of school too!
Thank you so much for following along with me this summer. It means the world to me! Cheers to a wonderful 2016-2017 school year (my last school year as Miss Attaway before my students go through the doozey of trying to switch to calling me Mrs. Eversole, eeek!)!
