Celebrate Turn #24


Each week Ruth Ayres extends an invitation to share and celebrate events, big or small, from our week.

Today I celebrate the first day of school.

There is nothing like the first day school ~ the excitement AND all the chaos that accompanies it!

We started school this week, and looking at the first two days, I think it will be a great year. Two years ago I moved from 4th to 6th, which means I have many of the same students I had during my last year at 4th grade.  That class holds a special place in my heart, and I am excited to share a classroom with them again.

Here they are together as 4th graders ~ my how they have changed!



It was also the first day of school for Megan, my daughter! Here we are on our teacher day...and no, we had no idea what the other one was going to wear!



To those of you returning to school this week ~ I celebrate your first day.  May you have a wonderful year with your new students and as always, may you find many celebrations along the way!

Today I celebrate the first day of school.

  10. How special to have your same students again! Wishing you a wonderful second year in 6th grade. I feel so much better having one year of middle school under my belt. Hope we can connect soon.

    So excited for your daughter. I remember how I felt starting my first year. I hope you will share more about her experiences.

  13. Leigh Anne, it is hard to believe that you and your daughter are back to school. Enjoy your year of learning with your group that is returning to you. How exciting. I am looking forward to hearing all about this year. Would you please consider creating a poem/photo combination for Summer Splashings? Perhaps, your students will create a class poem/photo offering for one of the galleries this year.
