Farewell, Summer

The clock is ticking the countdown of summer: the first day of school is tomorrow. What to do with those last golden hours? How about "Jersey Boys" with a fellow teacher? And for a bonus, how about running into another fellow teacher there? The world is apparently populated by wonderful teachers.
Remember having trouble falling asleep on Christmas Eve as a child because you were so excited about the coming Christmas morning? That's how I always feel the night before the first day of school. 

I teach at an exemplary school with committed professionals. I have precious students and supportive parents. We are given all the supplies we need to teach with excellence. And I'm getting paid to do a job I love, love, love.

I am blessed in this life.

And the school is blessed that you are teaching there. I saw "Jersey Boys" last year with friends when we were in Las Vegas. I had a great time and hope you liked it, too. Happy back to school!

I will pray for a wonderful year and a good night's sleep before your big first day! Glad you got to see jersey Boys with J! Love you momma!

Thinking of you today and hoping it's a great day! Looking forward to your classroom stories.

Be blessed!
