Today was my first day of school. I am EXHAUSTED!! They are so little!! In my district we have half day Kindergarten, so this is their first experience with being in school all day. I've decided teaching first grade is kind of like having a baby...it's painful the first weeks...but so completely rewarding in the end that I forget how hard those first weeks were and do it again the next year:) I have a really sweet group of little ones this year. I laughed all day at their cute stories. I think the best thing about being a first grade teacher is that they bring you love notes on the very first day. Yep, I'm tired tonight...but, I have the best job in the world!!!

how to make these soft and comfy, no sew pillows!!!
My husband is the love of my life and my best friend. I am the mother of five amazing kids, and just added an equally amazing son-in-law to the mix. Summertime at the lake with my family, a good book, and a diet coke make me smile. I have taught first grade for 10 years! Children are my favorite size of people. I relish the magic that occurs each day in a first grade classroom and believe that teachers who love teaching, inspire students to love learning!
