back to school

It is that time of year (at least the teachers are heading back) and it always comes with such mixed emotions...you'll miss the ease of summer, but your excited for your new group of kiddos. This week can definitely be one of the more difficult ones because it is full of trainings and setting up, but once the kids get there, it really reminds you why you do what you do. It is weird how right now my back to school mindset includes deciding what I want to bring in my lunches (to satisfy some preggers cravings and still be healthy), looking at curriculum and what we are going to teach this year, and picking cute borders and name plates for my classroom. I know with baby Unthank on the way that it will fly by and before I know it back to school will be backpacks, lunch boxes, new clothes and shoes, and gearing up for a whole new side of back to school. Even though I know that is 5 years away, it is still exciting that this baby will bring so many new experiences into our lives (like no more lazy Saturday mornings, but lots more giggles and kisses). So as I was sitting in staff training today, I was just thinking how quick time flies and how many wonderful and exciting things will change in the years to come. 

Hope everyone (teachers and mommas) are getting ready for back to school. I hope this is a wonderful year!
