    I go back to work tomorrow. I teach Kindergarten and i can tell you after a day with 5 year olds all i can do is lie on the couch. I love my job, but August 1....really.
    Be sure to post lots of pics to get me motivated by the weekend! Lol

    Since my granddaughter is now a kindergartener, I don't know how you have the energy to last all day with a whole herd of them, let alone just one.

    Bless you the teachers for ye are special!

    School starts a different days. It is a local decision. I find quilting to be relaxing and head for my sewing room when I am stressed or exhausted.

    Have a good year in teaching ladies, and when you can go to your sewing machine and start sewing.

    WOW that is early. They don't start school here until Sept. I hope you can find some "me time" with your busy schedule. Maybe even 30 min a day???

    Yep schools are starting earlier every year. I realize the classrooms are a/c but what about recess and the ride on those buses. I have taught at schools with no a/c but we didn't start until after labor day and even then some days were so hot my hair would be wet with sweat. I don't know who decided to lengthen the school year.
