so tired

today after school the principal stopped me to ask me if i was okay!
i said "yeah i'm fine."
she says "you just look really tired"
to which i replied, "i'll be this way all year"

J got married!! so excited and i was so glad that i could go and be there! it was a long day but amazing picture perfect. J was gorgeous, classy, elegant!! and so in love not the mushy make me sick kind of love, but a deep eternal kind of love that is developed through years of friendship, trial, support and so much more!

10 Years

not to dwell on the negative to much but still pay tribute to a good friend and great example i wanted to say how much Tera is missed by so many and that her life has had a tremendous impact on my life as well as so many others!! we should never take one moment for granted or forget the impact of one life and that we are all here to help each other!
No man is an Island!
Love you Tera!!

first day of school!!

kindergarten started this week on Thursday! it was a late start in the week but all is well because i was really only there one day. my morning class all looked at me like i was nutty! which is true i am. my afternoon class it was just the opposite i was looking at them like they were nutty! i've never had a first day quite like this and hope i never do again. i know i shouldn't judge on the first day because well it's only the beginning but it made me want to teach first grade so bad! i'll keep you posted as my kindergartners learn how to sit, listen, tie shoes, snap/button pants, wipe noses, sit criss-cross, raise their hands, write their names, and eventually read!

It's going to be a great year!!!


i'm not quite sure how to start for days i really didn't feel that i had anything of significance to post now i have so many thing some happy, some sad, some crazy, some sobering but it feels wrong to put them all in the same post! hmm okay so on that note the first in several post about my past week!

one week left

so school starts back in one week! it's crazy too me i'm trying talk myself into being excited i'm sure it will come if i keep trying. summer went way too fast but i guess i should be glad that i had a summer most other occupations don't get 2 1/2 months to play! lucky me. we still don't have a kindergarten/preschool teacher here. which is a little frustrating but i guess i just better put a smile on and everything will turn out okay!!
