Happy Fall!

School was wonderful today. Mondays usually work out to be the best day of the week for me. A weekend spent doing the things I love refreshes me and puts me in a great place to meet my first grade friends with a smile come Monday morning. 

This morning...I could feel it. It's officially autumn. The morning had a chilly feel to it, yet the sun was still shining. I had recess duty this morning which I don't mind at all. 

Actually this year our principal exchanged our lunch duty for recess duty and I'm loving it. A little fresh air makes me a lot happier than a hundred children eating and talking through lunch. To think I will not have to open another ketchup packet in 2008-09 delights me. (Maybe it takes an elementary school to understand this.)

Oh, I hear you on the wonders of elementary lunch duty... recess wins, hands down. (Beats HS lunch duty too, which I've done every day since taking this job.)

Glad you love Mondays. I find them easier to get through than Fridays-- I have a lot more energy early in the week :)

I am with you...I am dragging by Friday. It sometimes takes a piece of chocolate or candy to get me through.

I just found your blog through another I read, I the very first post I read made me crack up!

"To think I will not have to open another ketchup packet in 2008-09 delights me."

Amen to that, Sista!!

(I think your word verification just insulted me! It's asking me to type "oahuszy" which made me read, "Oh, a hussy!" haha!)
