Since the topic for this week's Heads or Tails is "talk," I am incorporating it into this post.
I want to talk about my kids first. They have grown up so much! Here's a picture of them on the first day of kindergarten.
Here's a picture of them on the first day of seventh grade. Talk about change!
They both had pretty good first days of school. However, getting all the papers signed and supplies together left me feeling like I didn't want to talk to anyone! Frustrating. And I already have to talk to one of my daughter's teachers. She teaches the same subject and same grade level as I do, so this talk might get interesting!
Today at work, I talked... a lot. The principals talked... alot, and the students wanted to talk... a lot. My students seem like great kids, but my administrators seemed like they were flying by the seats of their pants today. So disorganized! Unlike years past that went smoothly. I hope it's not an indication of the rest of the year. I'm exhausted, physically and mentally, and my feet ache. At least I like my classes. THEY are why I teach. The rest of it is just... blah. If all I had to do was teach, rather than the myriad other jobs they give us to do, then I would be a happy camper.
Thanks for listening to me talk about my kids and my day!
