Goodbye August

Hi Blog world! It's been awhile.  In the last two weeks, I've been busy meeting, greeting and training my 30 kindergarten students, celebrating Miss P's actual 8th birthday and sending her off to third grade. The top right corner photo is her newly decorated writer's notebook.  Upper Grader!

The school year started with the usual drama. Miss P was switched to a new class just before the first day, and even into week two, the kindergarteners were shuffled between classrooms and schools to make sure each room had 30, and an even distribution of girls and boys. Sheesh! Luckily, I have darling families, and I finally feel like I've got a grip on things.

P's birthday included a trip to her favorite - Build-a-Bear - dinner with family, and a busy weekend of hitting friends' birthday parties. August is a birthday bonanza month around here! Tomorrow is Ed's grandma's birthday. 

Otherwise, I've been spending my precious downtime devouring Gone Girl. Have you read it?  

It's Friday afternoon and as Paige's playdate wears down, I'm looking forward to a weekend that includes some fun and relaxation! I hope you have a good one too...

and I thought I was busy! I can't imagine teaching on top of raising my own kids. Lovin' the pictures :)
