ready or not.

My room at 2:00... around the time the super supportive person left.

After "Meet the Teacher Night." I work well under pressure. 

I even did a little organizing/labeling today... 

Only half my class came tonight. 
So it's hard to tell much at this point. 
One of my little girls didn't talk to her kindergarten teacher until the 43rd day of school. So that might be fun. 
Our schedule got completely changed. 
1st grade goes to specials (PE, Music, Library, Computers) at 8:10 am. School starts at 8:00. So basically we'll do lunch count and then send them away for 70 minutes. Which will be nice for last minute planning in the mornings. 
But it also means that we get our kids back at 9:20 am and the only break we will get until 3:00 is a 25 minute lunch. Fabulous. It's gonna make for some l....o....n....g afternoons. 

Sophie is super excited. Loves her teacher... several of her classmates... can't wait for 2nd grade. 
Lawson is excited about kindergarten, but a little nervous. (And still not happy about having to get up so early.) I'm not sure how he'll do in the morning. I can see him going in fine, seeing some friends, and sending Corey off with a smile. But I can also see him getting nervous, shy and really not wanting Corey to leave. 

I guess we'll see...

Thinking of you today as you tackle the first day!

I work so much better under pressure too so I relate to this.
