So... I'm sure you all thought, "Huh. August started... Where's Dawn??"
Or, maybe, you didn't give two shin diggities about where I've been.
Either way, I got straight back into my classroom August 1st.
After the year that I had last year, I can honestly say, getting back to work hasn't exactly made me jump for joy.
But, I had no choice.
My brother is getting married ...and I only had last week to get things sorted out, and put back together so I would feel (at least) semi-excited a new school year was starting.
I did all my normal stuff:
-put down name tags
-make open house packets
But I just couldn't shake off the feeling of the badness that occurred in my room last year.
So... despite the fact that I didn't have time... I redid all of my bulletin boards. I made new labels for my book boxes.... I gave my room a face lift it so desperately needed!!
I sighed as I walked out... cause I know I have a good group of kiddos coming my way... and now I actually feel ready for them to join me.
(Come back and see me tomorrow... I'll show you what else I have been up to. ;)
