Because I have extra time?

No, not at all these days! But, I did find a fun way to releive stress. Most of you have already posted your photos from this site, so I thought I would join in. If you need a laugh, here are two of my faves:

What a week! I never realized how tiring preparing to teach can be. My classroom is now in order, I have met all of my adorable three-year-olds and my lessons are planned for week one. I am ready to go. I have been giving Benjamin the "preschool prep talk" as in....don't forget to go to the bathroom, share, eat all of your lunch, be a sweet boy and try not to obsess over the sweeper vac in the corner of your classroom.
We start school Tuesday morning and I am sure I will have lots of pics to share. David took the morning off and we have planned some special things for the boys before they leave for preschool that morning, including reading The Kissing Hand (thanks for the tip, Lori!).
I love all of my new teacher friends. Sometimes I wish this were even three days a week because so far I am really enjoying it! I have loved getting up and getting ready in the morning (as in hair and make-up...quite the luxury for a stay-at-home-mom). I have loved backing out of the drive-way before eight to join the hustle and bustle of morning life outside of my house. I have even loved coming home every night and collapsing from sheer exhaustion and then doing it all again the next day. This week of inservice has been a blast...bring on preschool!

I have enjoyed getting back into work again too, even if it is only 2 days a week.

I love the pictures, I need to get on that website and post my pictures.

Great pics! I really need to find a good pic of me to do that with!

I'm glad you are loving work! I hope that it's a fantastic year for you and your boys!

You look amazing in the 80's! :)
I am glad that you are enjoying your new adventure. I missed reading the Kissing Hand to my little Kindergarteners this year. It is such a sweet story. Hope all of you have a great first day!
