Back to School

Well, my lack of blogging these past few weeks can only mean one thing: school is back in session.  I've set up the classroom, attended the new teacher meetings, planned some lessons, and welcomed the little 6th graders to middle school.  The first day was like trying to herd 200+ cats as they made it to their lockers and tried (and tried...and tried) to open them.  I could barely step out my classroom door during passing period before at least three wide-eyed kids would be asking for help.  The best part would be when you'd watch them try multiple times, then see them look up at the locker number, and proceed to move over to the next locker that was actually theirs.  They really are good kids.  They ask the funniest questions and want to please you so much.  Despite all the change and being back in the "just be a day ahead of them" stage, I'm really loving it.  And you wanna know a really great thing?? Sixth graders eat first lunch, which makes Miss Sauder very happy :)

Before the busyness of life set in, I made a trip to KC to see Jana and the crew.

Cade loves playing "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

My sweet Grandmama and Papa had a plant delivered to my new classroom!
All in all it's been a great start to the 2013-2014 school year!  And some exciting news--I will be completely finished with my master's degree as of this Sunday! Woo hoo!!

Good bye summer....until we meet again.
