Back to School

Well, I made it through my first week.  My district's nice enough to usually start on a Wednesday or Thursday {one year we started on a Monday --- yikes, that was a looooong week!} -- and better than that, they give us a half day the first day, so we have the afternoon to go out to lunch for the last time in forever, change names for those little sweeties who want to be called something else, put up supplies we got, plan the next day, visit with colleagues, and more.

This was my happy for my first day:

My hubby got to go to College Town to visit College Girl, so this was my consolation prize. Well, it is a very nice prize. And if you look closely, you'll see pencils. One of my new little friends {a girl, of course} noticed them first.

And to match my very limited Superhero theme, my new little friends made these for the door:

Yes, I made the night sky scene on the bottom. Pretty much loving it -- except when I kicked the door stop and kicked it, too.

The superheros turned out cute, and some of them added little capes that my hubby designed and some decided not to. I was going to show the Incredibles clip where the designer tells about how bad capes are ---- but my laptop that goes with my Smartboard was MIA. I love how one of my friend's superhero is flying. At least, I hope that's what he's doing!

At the end of the workday part of our first day, I had a doctor's appointment, and then I went shopping, because a teacher never has all the things she needs:

That's right -- necessities include duck tape, beads, command hooks, labels and eyeliner and eye shadow! Didn't you know that?

And finally.... you know that thing on FB about how you can go by school and see teacher cars in the parking lot and know they are working outside their contract time? I don't work at school that much {except if I need to be going through stuff} -- but this is all the stuff I worked on Saturday at my house that my hubby carted back up to school for me.

Oh, I'll admit --- I loved most of it. 

Happy Monday to you! Whether you're back at it, or just thinking about it!

  2. What great flowers! Hope you had a wonderful week and get to enjoy the sun today.

  3. I've started on a Wednesday or Thursday for as long as I can remember, but this year I'm starting on Monday. I must admit it sounds like an awful long week already. Beautiful flowers by the way!
