Top Ten Reasons I Know It Is BACK TO SCHOOL Time!

Head on over to the linky party on Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits!

Here is my top 10 list:

10. My garage is filled with all of my boxes ready to move into my new school....whenever it is finally complete!

9. I have a 10-mile long "TO DO" list, and the stress is on when I realize I only have 2 weeks to get it all done!

8. I am going through my closets to see which outfits still fit and will work for the 90+ degree temps we inevitably have during the first month of school.

7. I am dreading giving up my sandals and flip flops for my ultra-comfy (but not as cute) Dansko shoes!

6. I spend about 5 hours each day browsing all of the awesome teacher blogs and Pinterest for new ideas for my classroom.

5. Since I am going to a new school, I am feeling like a brand-new teacher...I will have new teammates, new administration, a new school. It is scary! I am sure the back to school nightmares will start soon :)

4. I am starting to plan our menus for the month after I go back to work. Between getting into the swing of working and my daughter's 3 nights of gymnastics each week...I need a plan!

3. I am trying to adjust my water drinking to match when/how much I drink while at school. Sounds silly, I know, but I need to get back into the swing of no "potty" time during class time. EEK!

2. I am thinking about everything I planned to do this summer, and kicking myself for only doing some of those things.

1. While all of my non-teacher friends are EXTREMELY excited about getting their crazy kids back to school, I am extremely excited to get back into the classroom with all of those crazy kids :) (Even though I will miss my 2 babies while they are in school/daycare).

  1. Fantastic! I am so glad you linked up! I forgot about menu planning...add that to my to do list! 4 years ago I moved across the country to a school that wasn't yet built. Hang in there. It will be wonderful and the good news is that all of you at your new school are in it together. You aren't the only one feeling crazy. Best of luck on this year!
