3 2 1


Count down. I'm trying to get to bed at a decent hour tonight. After bribing the kids with ice cream to clean the toy room, they were so motivated that they begged for just a few more minutes of cleaning time. Then I took a little time to work on the Sirenia quilt after I got everyone to bed. I'd love to sew into the wee hours and get it finished up tonight. Instead I've stuck it decoratively to my portable design wall (formerly known as science fair boards). I'll get everything picked up off the floor before I turn into a pumpkin. The babysitter should be here by 7:50 so I can head into school for a brand new year.

Love the new quilt - they should certainly brighten up your room - I bet it'll take a while for the novelty to wear off though and for your students to get down to work! Have a great day back - I always found the first few days of a new year tiring in a way, as with a new class I had to be so calm and 'nice' until they got to know me better!

I hope your first day back goes smoothly, I'm sure everyone will love your quilts.

Oh wow! Back already-----I feel your "pain"??? Nahhhh......deep down we know we teach because we love it!!! First days are hectic and they seem to fly by! I'm sure yours is doing/did just that!!!

To think, our students still have three full weeks of summer vaca before they need to go back (I have two). Does your school have a ritual for the first day back? Our Student Council always has an "Ice Cream Social" at the end of the day....
