This time last year

One of the things I love about blogging is I can go back to see what I was thinking at any given time of the year.  I decided to go back and see how I felt this time last year.  This is what I found:

Ok. Let s start with preschool. Today is the 7th day and I think maybe I need to see if Wal-Mart or Mickey D's has openings. I am exhausted.   It is really tough getting 13 brand-new preschoolers to get in a routine and be social (In a nice way) with friends.   I mean, we have went through about three trees worth of toilet paper, a gallon of glue already, and the sand… where is it going? Do they eat it?  Thankfully I love my job! There are just days that it is like trying to tack jello to a wall.

The really wonderful thing about that post is- this year I have 11 of those children RETURNING so we are all already friends.  Two more of my new children are siblings!  I predict this year to be one of our best yet.  Is it time yet??!?!?!?!?!

I am always exhausted when I leave each day at the beginning of the school year. I was so lucky last year - I had my "easiest" year yet. 12 of my 2's will be moving up to my 3's class, so I will only have 4 new children. If those 4 are as easy as the 12 that are returning, I know it will be a good year with my 3's class. I'm not sure about my 2's class yet, since I only know 1 of the children. Yep, I am sleeping really late these days so I can be very well-rested in a month! LOL

Hi Debbie,
It sounds like you are going to have a great year. I took my class up last year. It was great but even more work when at the end we had all figured out exactly how to get on each other's nerves.
