School’s back in session and yesterday was the first day back for my little high school darlings. This year, I’ve got four Journalism I classes and two combo classes of Journalism II and III students — the yearbook/newspaper crew. The JI babies (mostly freshmen but some sophomores, juniors and seniors thrown in for good measure) are wide-eyed at the moment and not sure what they’ve gotten themselves into. My JII and III kiddos are returns from last year (yay, I didn’t scare them *all* off!) and they’re excited to get going.
When I finally made it home, I collapsed into a heap on my couch and took a nap. Getting back on schedule is brutal!
Because my brain has been scrubbed, wrung dry and hung out in the sun (or rain, as that’s all we’ve been getting in South Carolina), I’m gonna have to stand my poor Speed Date up today. I’m sure he’ll survive. Maybe he’ll even be kind enough to meet back up next week. Me, I’ll be back on track Monday (or Friday, if tomorrow goes really well and I don’t need a nap-y!). This weekend’s plans involve a nap, writing lesson plans for the week and writing enough reviews/posts to cover the next week (more, if I don’t take too many naps!).
For all of you who work in education, are sending off a wee’un to school this fall or are just happy to see all those big yellow busses carting the noisemakers off to get an edumacation, I hope you have a fantastic school year!
