Back to school recap

We made it through the 1st week of a new school year and I'm happy to report it was a pretty great week.  Minus the car line for pick up the 1st day of school, everything went according to plan.  Kids went to bed on time, lunches were packed ahead of time, and we were out the door when we needed to be.  Looks like teachers aren't going load on the homework too thick this year which make this mama happy.
As for me... what a difference a year makes.  Last year at this time, I was doing everything I could just to stay a float in the waters of first year teaching.  My motto was "one day at a time".  This year, I know what needs to get done and when it needs to be done... I've actually been able to plan a few days ahead.  My class sizes are much bigger this year and I've got 5 biology classes instead of 3, but so far I'm really enjoying it.  The first week was pretty exhausting... thank goodness for the 3-day Labor Day holiday weekend to recoup.
I will add that I think Wes is glad we are back in a routine.  Now we are all getting up early, like he has to do all year long.  Looking forward to a great school year.... how many days until Christmas vacation?
