I headed back into my classroom yesterday for the first time since June. It looked like this. That's how it usually looks in August. My typical reaction to it is anticipation, thoughts of how to organize and what will make our year the best it can be.
This year I walked in with a broken elbow and my thoughts were more along the lines of, "How on earth am I going to get all this furniture in the right place?"
Luckily my daughters (10 and 6) were with me. They were amazing. In under two hours we had all the furniture and carpets in place.
I'm back to feeling anticipation...
