School is back in session


The beginning of a school year is just so exhausting!!! I don't think a lot of people realize how much work the first week of kindergarten is. The children come to school so excited and ready to "play" and the poor kids need to practice waiting: waiting for everyone to check for notes, waiting to see who is buying lunch, waiting to find out who brought peanutbutter (we have allergies in our school), waiting to learn routines and schedules, waiting to take a turn to talk, waiting for a turn with a favorite toy. All they really want to do is play with their friends. We spend the first week slowly introducing rules and routines.

We also have a lot to do to get ready for these little guys. I felt like a walking zombie these past two weeks. I don't seem to have much of a break for the next couple of weeks either.

take care,
Dawn

Hang in there, my friend. You are such a blessing to so many children.

I'm thinking about you.
