I have to remind myself that the first couple of weeks of school are like death. They're awful, dreadful, and I wouldn't want anyone to have to live through it. But why oh why do I keep doing it?! The only thing I can think of is the love I feel for most of those kids that have moved on. They have all touched my heart in some way or another and I want them to succeed. It's so hard to start with a new set of children every year, but I knew if I had the same kids for years, those feelings would fade, I'd have a hard time remembering, and I'd lose my ability to learn and teach. It's a good thing, really. It's just *so* flipping hard to remember these kids have no idea what I want from them. We must persevere!
Anyway, with a demanding work schedule, I don't have near the amount of time to play on the computer as I did over the summer. I go through withdrawals!! I miss my games. I miss blogging. Ah well, it'll come back, right?
Also? I have *NO* idea how I did this last year with a newborn...I must been in a shock of denial. oh. my. gosh.
Produce this week! (The butterball - yellow potatoes are from last week- it was left out last week accidentally, so those were extra) - spinach, celery, carrots, 2 peppers, strawberries, cherry tomatoes (which we ate most of on the way home), more potatoes (by the way, pesto WITH mashed potatoes is like heaven), squash, and some heirloom tomatoes YUM, YUM, YUM!!
She got super messy eating a banana so this was her interim outfit before bathtime. I love those legs!

They played on the playground while I did some work today, this was my little break :)
