First week of school...

It is always so hard for me to go back to school.  I enjoyed staying up late watching Hallmark movies this summer and visiting with Josh and my parents.  We had a staff meeting (district wide) on Monday and then a building meeting on Tuesday.  I was able to eat with my friends both of those days.  Then on Wednesday the kids came back.  I am always glad when the kids come back.  The meetings are so boring, but necessary.  The student I am working with had a great week.  I was so excited.  I am loving his class so far.  The kids are very well behaved and the teacher is very good at classroom management.  The student I work with needs this very much.  I also have my own area this year with my own computer.  I used a student cubby last year to put my things in.  It is kind of exciting to have my own space.  Anyway, week one was a success full moon and all.  The kids went over procedures and expectations this week.  They will start regular classroom work on Monday.
We got a call from Josh's Principal this week also.  He wanted to pass along a message that one of Josh's teachers wanted to let us know that Josh had a positive report and was being a leader this week.  I was so happy for him.  This is a new Principal, so I am really hoping Josh's last year will be a good one.  Josh has had pretty negative experiences with this school district for a very long time, so I am hoping for a good year.  I also work with the Principal's wife.
I went to visit my parents last night and they were good.  My dad was having a good day.  I love it when he is so on top of things.
Today I slept in and am just relaxing and recharging.  Have a great weekend!

That's wonderful that your school year is beginning so well and that your son Josh is getting good reports. I hope that the year continues just like it began.
