    Well, the summer is unofficially over! I'm back into the classorom today for the first time since the end of June. While I'm looking forward to seeing some of my colleagues, and setting up everything so that my room looks all "shiny and new", I can't quite believe that the summer is over! My "To Do" list is pretty much exactly the same as it was at the beginning of summer--I didn't do much other than laze around and read.

    To everyone else heading back today, have a great day!

    I have been back in my room for almost a month now- teaching for two weeks. It is my dh's first day of classes (college). I am hoping he has a good semester (makes things around my house easier).

    Also, Happy Birthday!

    I start new teacher orientation today. I'm excited for that though, because hopefully I'll get answers to my millions of questions!! My room is all set up and ready to go. So after orientation, all I have to do is plan for the first couple days then relax until I REALLY have to go back! Good luck today!

    I like that quote Aliceacc. I started back officially on the 15th. Kids came last Wednesday. Not quite in full swing yet, but we're getting there quickly. And yes, summer went by way too fast for me as well.

    Thanks for the good wishes, everyone! It was nice to see some friends and realize that the furniture in my classroom will work the way I imagined it. It's so nice to see the bright, shiny floors! I made it a short day today--came home to see my kids and found no one home; they've both gone out with friends.

    No dinner out, I'm afraid. My daughter has a 6:30 soccer game, my son may or may not be home for dinner, and my husband has gone away with friends for a few days. I did stop and buy myself a yummy "Chocolate Extreme" birthday cake, though.

    Happy, Happy Birthday!!!

    I remember as a kid, school would start way after my birthday. Now, it usually starts on or around my birthday. Oh well. Hope you have a great year!!

    Got that right (about the beer!)--I've got a couple chilling in the fridge for after work tonight--want to leave your 100+ temps and join me? Although, we do have the humidity!

    As far a "celebrating" birthdays--only the very young or very old do that. When you're squarely in the middle--you get by. (Although my 16 year old son did sing "Happy Birthday" to me last night:D

    Happy Belated Birthday!!!!!!!!!

    My students start tomorrow. ACK!!! I want another week. It would be nice to start after the long weekend. When was your last day of school Mrs. C? It seems like you just got out and now your are starting again. Are you school years longer than ours?

    Just got my laptop up and running in my classroom, so had to check in here to be sure everything is working properly:eek:. Our students' last day was June 29th (that was a Thursday, right?) and we worked the next day. We have 9 weeks off for summer vacation.

    YUCK you have a short summer. We go to school 176 days here. So I guess we end up with oh wait about 9 weeks off hahaha.
    My last day was a week before yours. And the kids start this Wednesday.

    Singing Happy Birthday was a tradition with my family we would sing it over the phone at 6:00 AM
    it is 87° this morning, today's forecast 110° but by 5:00 PM there should be a new working A/C unit on the roof :)
