I love sitting out on the patio of our new apartment. This morning I saw a fox come out of the brush while I was drinking my coffee. We have seen a family of turkeys in the past. It is funny how you can live off a major state route and see this kind of wildlife!
I just found out on Thursday that my grant proposal to the Dollar General Literacy Foundation was accepted! The Basic Skills program at my school will be getting its own set of leveled readers! We were approved for $3,000!
We start school this week! I am both excited and nervous. It is funny how you can still get those first day jitters year after year. Each year is so different that you never know what to expect!
To go along with that last one, who doesn't want to have a great school year?! Here is hoping for a productive, meaningful year of learning and growth!
One of the hardest parts of going back to school is getting back on schedule. No more staying up late and sleeping in. The first week is always the hardest. I tried to slowly ease myself back in last week. I hope that helps. Thank goodness for coffee.
Oops! Didn't read the directions on this one. Oh well! Artistic freedom, right? I had such an awesome summer this year. I was blessed to be able to take many trips. I went to Las Vegas as a tag-along during my boyfriend's business trip. (No, it wasn't during the TPT conference. :-/ ) Then, I got to go on a cruise to the Caribbean with my boyfriend's family. We went to the Grand Cayman Islands, Belize, Roatan, and Cozumel. It was amazing. Then, my sister got married. I made a couple of trips back to my home in Ohio for the wedding, shower, and bachelorette. It was a busy summer to say the least!
Now, I can't wait to find out what everyone else has been up to! Happy back to school everyone!
