Wow I can't believe the first two weeks are over, they just flew by. As I have mentioned this is my first year with first grade and I just love it. I have the pleasure of having most of my students back from last year, they were quite surprised when they showed up on the first day and I was their teacher again. One very sweet girl came running down the hall to give me a very big hug.
I finally finished the rocking chair I got this summer, here is a picture of before and after. It has been so very hot here which isn't the best time to be outside painting so this took longer than anticipated. We have had extremly high temperatures which isn't unusual for Texas but this year we have been setting records with the heat, were on our 58th day of over 100 degrees.
