A new school year has started! I was dragging my heals before the first day...not wanting the summer days to end. But something happens on that first day when all those fresh faces walk into the classroom...they are so eager, so excited, and often, so nervous!
As a teacher, we spend more of a child's waking hours with them than their parents - hopefully - if they're going to bed at a decent hour! We get so close to those little people...so protective of them.
But now my routine is changed...it has to be more structured so I can get everything done. I do have one major rebellion on my hands, however. HE does not like this new change of routine. HE has gone to HIDING in the morning when he knows it's about time for me to leave.
