Disney, Beginning of School, Exhausted

I’m so sorry I have been such a blog slacker lately. I feel like I have been going none stop for the whole month of August. I can’t believe tomorrow is September already. Part of the problem was I was on vacation the beginning of the month and then went straight to working on my classroom the day after I got home. We went to the happiest place on earth. DISNEY!!! I just love Disney World and would go every year if I could. Disney if even where my husband and I got engaged. Here are a few pics from my trip.

Epoct and the Hubster on Toy Story Mania. My vote for best ride.

When we got back I went straight to work unpacking my new room. I didn’t realize how much stuff I had until I went to unpack it and put it away. I meant to take before and after photos of my room but of course I forgot. I did take pictures of the bulletin board I made last minute at the end of our Hallway.

I know it needs more but after I had these up I was just done. I wish I could take credit for the rocket ship and aliens but my husband made them all. The day before our meet the teacher night our board still hadn’t been done and I panicked and begged him to make me anything space related.  I’m lucky he’s so creative.

I don’t know why but every year I forget how my little firsties come in still kindergarteners at the beginning of the year. It’s so exhausting retraining them for first grade. This week was our first full week of school and boy am I tired. One of my sweeties raised their hand towards the end of day Friday and wanted to know if we could take a nap. A nap sounded like a great idea but I sadly had to tell him no. Its rough going from half day K to full day but they are being troopers.  I have a great group this year and I have a feeling we are going to have a great year!

Nap? I'd love a nap too! We haven't done naps here in... I actually don't know! While you are trying to train your firsties, I'm trying to train my kinder kiddos! Whew! It's all exhausting.
Your blog is adorable and I L-O-V-E the name! I'm your newest follower.
