Back to School 2014




And we're back in the swing of it.  These are pictures from Monday, when I was headed to my first staff development day and the boys were back to daycare full time.  We walked across the street a little late and everyone was wiggly and Milo wasn't really feeling it.  Right after we snapped these, Ben took Elliott back to change a poopy diaper.  But both boys were so happy to see their teacher, and Ben and I were happy to leave them for a bit.  I forgot how amazing it is to be greeted by toddlers who had a break from you all day.

My students are back at school and already are more crazy and more normal than I'd ever remembered.  I always underestimate the feeling of having 21+ new people looking at you and saying "Okay, make a class of us!" I have good plans and good people around me, and mostly, good kids.  I'm fighting to keep the optimism of August, and I will succeed.  Here's to a Knope school year.
