It wasn't bad necessarily.
It was just a Monday.
Lots of fun things happened.
But I have just had to be grumpy to the kids.
Like stern and just generally grumpy.
And I don't particularly like it.
I like to smile and be goofy.
I have been talking to a few veteran teachers.
They say that this is normal.
They say that at the beginning of the year we get overwhelmed first thing because there is not enough time.
Then we have to set those rules and boundaries with our kids.
Once the first month or two of school is done, then...
Then you can relax.
I guess I had forgotten about the beginning of the year last year.
I was so overwhelmed, and felt like I was drowning.
But i managed.
And I will manage again this year.
Except there is one big difference this year.
I have my Zac to talk to.
I get to talk to him and I think that helps.
In fact I know it helps.
And even though I hate mornings.
I really like getting to talk to him first thing.
He makes mornings so much better.
And I am so glad that he is so good humored.
God has blessed me immensely.
So very very much.
