Long Time No Blog

I am such a bad Blogger! It's been over a month since I've been on here! WTH?? So, I bring you a very long post today! I have lots of things to share. I've been a very busy girl. Life is spinning way too fast. Or is that the world? Did the revolution of the Earth speed up lately? I feel like it has. My career has taken a huge jump back into the world of little kids! I'm up to my eyeballs in art materials, little fingers and crazy schedules! It's taken me alot of preparation for the 1st day with kids in my classroom. Unfortunately, I didn't take BEFORE pics of my classroom, but when I got it all cleaned up and organized I did take a few pics of it. Here they are:





Here's one of MY kindergartener posing with his art smock. So cute! A nice, big space with lots of storage and my very own office! LOVE it! So, it's hard, but I'll get used to the timing, the way the kids tick, and how to manage 5 minutes in between classes to set up! Oh My! It's craziness! I'm insane to have thought Elementary had it easy... there is NOTHING easy about this job! I haven't gotten to know all the kids yet, but the charm is there. They are sweet, energetic and eager to make art! There are some severely handicapped children that are not adjusting well yet, but hopefully they will soon!

On the homefront, Mark started Kindergarten this week! I cried at the bus stop, but he's adjusting well and there was nothing but pure excitement from him! No tears, no clinging, no whining! No worries...
Here are a few pics from the bus stop...


So bittersweet! He is getting so big and while I'm not ready for him to grow up too fast, I'm so proud of him for being such a big boy and getting through the tough life lessons so far. I know we have many more to tackle, but he has a family that loves him and a little brother who wants to do everything like him! So, happy back to school little man and to all the teachers and students everywhere! Off to lesson plan AGAIN! I'll be posting some new artwork of my own soon along with some DT work that I've been working on!

XOXO,
Jen
