Today was a very long day. After a full day of teaching (I am a full time second grade teacher) I finished the final preparations on my classroom, ran home to let the dog out and change my clothes, then went back to school for the annual Open House.
I love meeting the parents and siblings of my new students. I'm also excited to see and catch up with the people I already know. I have been at my school for many (31) years and often have siblings or children of former students so mostly it's a big reunion. I also love the fact that former students and parents come to visit me even if they do not have a child in my room this year!!!
When I finally made it home, I was exausted. I had a bite to eat and looked through a couple of quilt magazines but couldn't muster the energy to work on a project.
Tomorrow is another day!
