Back to School!

I went back to work this week, and I am exhausted! I was quite emotional leaving Greg, but I was so proud of myself for not crying while I was at school. The good thing about me going back to work is that Greg stays home with Noel; I don't have to drop him off at daycare. So he gets some quality dad time. Noel was so great this week. He got up with Greg every time each school night. Of course I still woke up when Greg woke up, but I immediately went back to sleep while Noel went out and fed him.

I have a great class. At least they are great so far.:) Last year I had a few students with some major behavioral issues. This year is not the case. I have a class full of kids you can't help but love. My long-term sub and my instructional assistant did a wonderful job with the kids. My class is into great routines and working hard. It's awesome!

What post about school would be complete without a little kid funny? My friend, Ashley, teaches a 1st/2nd split. She was taking her kids through the lunch line when one of her students asked the lunch lady at the computer, "Can I withdraw money from my account?" The lunch lady replied, "No. Besides you only have 40 cents." I love it! What kid thinks to ask for the money out of his lunch account like it is the bank?!?! Very clever. Sneaky, but clever.

You're amazing for not crying at school! You're probably too busy with everything you have to do as a teacher! You're amazing Amber! I bet it is so much nicer not having to send Greg to a daycare though!! Can't wait to see you guys at Christmas!! (I think I've said that like 30 times... but I'm so excited!)

Funny kids! I'm proud of you Amber!! I bet you're first day was really hard. How fun for Noel to be a stay-at-home dad. And man - how great is it not to feed Greg at night!!!! I'm jealous!

Good job making it through without tears! I'm so happy for you that Noel is able to be home with Greg, that make it so much more bearable! He is so, so cute!
