So, I feel like such a slacker on here lately. I've been lurking daily and trying to post a lot but work is kicking my butt! I have had all kinds of staff development this week preparing me for the first day of school, which is Monday. Yesterday I was on my feet most of the day and by the time I was done with Meet the Teacher my feet were SO swollen. I just wasn't expecting to feel this slowed down already, I guess. Today I finished in my classroom and stayed seated as much as possible. I am going to spend the weekend resting and saving up my energy for next week. Right now the thought of wrangling 22+ five-year-olds scares me a little, but I'm sure I will survive.
Today when I got to work two of my co-workers gave me a gift and it was a pair of baby Converse sneakers! They are Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!! to match our theme They got me the smallest size they had and she won't be able to wear them for a while but I love them. Here is a pic:
