For my family and I, the first day of school is always like New Year’s Day. In fact we anxiously await, the first day of school, buy new clothes, new school supplies, and celebrate the start of a New School Year!
For me it’s literally the start of a new year, even more so than January 1st! It’s a fresh start for me as a teacher, and also for my kids and student’s. I have butterflies in my stomach, I’m nervous, I’m excited, yet happy…
The days that lead up to the first day, we close our last year (as a family) and talk about summer favorites, our new goals, our new expectations, and family expectations. We talk about our excitements, and if we are going to try anything new or different, then bam, we hit the new school year running and our HAPPY NEW YEAR begins!
I don’t know about you, but for me the months of August and September are busy, exhausting, crazy, and definitely a new beginning! For the first six weeks, my life is literally consumed with the new school year, no joke! If you are reading this blog post, I bet you feel the same way! For this reason, I’m having a #backtoschool and #laborday 2015 giveaway Beginning tonight till Monday 9/7 at Midnight (mountain Standard time)! Hard work pays off and Teachers definitely deserve the rest!
