We went back to school today. No "teacher work days" for us -- just a straight up return with students.
It made for a sleepy morning -- both for me, and for my students.
It was cold today, too -- I used my new "Chile-proof" jacket during recess duty, and was glad to have it. I am still a little sad that it's not an Omni-Heat Electric -- but who has $750 to spend on an electric jacket? (If you want to gift me with one, I won't refuse your gift....I'd love to have an electric, self-heating, battery operated jacket....).
My second group of students were rowdy, as usual -- no leftover vacation sleepiness by the time they got to me.
It was hard to come home from the beach yesterday afternoon, but I suppose it had to be done. It was great to spend the end of 2011, and the very beginning of 2012, relaxing with sweet hubby and a group of friends. Being at the beach is one of my favorite things.
I'm looking forward to only three more days of school this week, and then looking forward to the long weekend....We have three short school weeks in a row. Strange, but I think I'm happy about it.
