Monday was a teacher inservice day and my two older kids had their open house!
Kira was patient and mainly we just walked Ben through his different classes and talked to his SPED teacher. Kira is mainly with one teacher in 6th grade, so she hung out there with her friends from the Staff social last week! I love how fast she makes friends!
Tuesday was a workday and our Open House. I had Ben and Kira with me, so I could bring them to Cross Country practice. After practice I raced home, changed shoes and grabbed everyone, to head to our Open House. My classroom isn't even close to up to par, but it will work for this first few weeks!
I'm slowly getting things up on my bare walls!
Wednesday was the first day of school! My two preschoolers had Doctor's appointments, so Josh didn't get to start right away. At my lunch, I went to see how things were going. I got a Totino's pizza from our amazing secretary, because Josh has a staph infection on his face and can't be in school. He was screaming and yelling about this injustice. He really wants to be at school! He'll actually get to start tomorrow (Monday). Poor kiddo! Ben forgot to stay at school for cross country practice and came to our school. Surprise! No practice for him! Kira was worried, so she had the secretary call and I was able to tell her it was okay and I had him! Silly Ben!
Technically not his first day.
They wait at our school to catch the bus to their school!
Then we had church. Great times!
Thursday went much more smoothly!
Friday went well! My students are great! I love this school! Everyone works together really well!
The amazing lady that I took over for (she's a Reading Specialist now) let us come out to her place and pick yummy cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and squash! There were even a few blackberries! So nice! Our kids had a blast!
Saturday we didn't go to Olathe, since my parents are in Idaho! I was actually able to get most of the boxes out of Living room and Dining Room! Aaahhhh! Our house is coming along quite nicely as well! Kira and I went to my classroom and were there until late, but we got more done! Then when we got home I finished up my lesson plans for the week and my classroom behavior plan! I still need to make my monthly newsletter on Monday, so the parents know where to check in on their kiddos! I'm so excited about a new app-Seesaw, the learning journal. It's like an online portfolio where I can put the kids' work the entire year! Awesome!
Today was church and then my son's amazing para from last year came and visited! Her granddaughters were here for the rodeo! It was so great seeing her! She stood and listened to Ben tell about his awesome creatures (seriously he should write books or a computer program, or something)!
Josh loves to snuggle Cecilia and will put his arm around her. It's so cute!
Ben and his old para!
