The first week of the school year is officially done! It is so nice that we almost always start on a short week. Such a huge change to not be in the classroom every day. I am having plenty of time with the kids though, and they are starting to come in for help with resumes and applications. Lots of training so far and figuring out what I am supposed to be accomplishing.
The family was all in Virginia this week moving Anna into her new apartment at Virginia Tech. She is having fun getting settled in. Because she was in dorm for 4 years of undergrad, this is her first apartment, and she is full of questions about how to do things like setting up electricity and getting and Wi-Fi router. Sydney will move into her dorm on Thursday and we will officially be empty nesters. What a strange thought! All those years of raising kids and having them around all the time just to suddenly have them all move out.
That sounds like a nice transition from classroom to a job where you still interact with kids and help them. Hopefully, with less work like grading and planning to bring home! Have a great weekend!
it takes awhile to get used to an empty nest but once you do you will be happy with it I bet - I think most of us are. A new position at work too that will keep you busy I bet
Congrats on finishing the first week at your new position! I loved being a school librarian, mostly because I got to see all the kids and watch them grow from year to year.
An empty nest is actually awesome. You will love it. And don't worry-- they always come back! Good luck with all that moving!
Enjoy the empty nest while you can... they'll be back! LOL
Enjoy your new job this year. I know they picked the best person for the job. You are always helpful and kind to the students. Enjoy the new empty nest.
It definitely is a different time for you. It does take a bit of adjusting but you’ll be ok.
