…- hello.

…-I am off to school soon. First day with students. Nervous? Yeah, like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

…-still reading like a maniac.

…-haven’t started my online class, although the textbook arrived several days ago.

…-I opened it up. Did you know they make the print in textbooks really really tiny small nowadays?

…-I’m sure it’s not my eyes.

…-my kids are excited about school. They set out their backpacks last night.

…-I have a big year planned. I’m going to read, read, read with the kids, everything from Where the Wild Things Are to Lemony Snickets. Yay. I will also give away a ton of books to the students and their parents — I appreciate that people like to donate books to schools, and I want to get them out to some readers. It’s so nice to be the middleman on this.

…-Do I go back to bed? Or start drinking coffee?

…-ha ha ha like that’s even a real question.

…-have a good day, y’all.

    Talk to Monkeyboy, he had anxiety also….want Bird to talk you into not feeling nervous? He was really good with that as you can see by the picture!!! Good luck and have fun.

    That shrinking type size started a few years ago. I think they were trying to conserve paper.

    Mr. Toddler says thank you guys for the book, a note is forthcoming.
    We had a blast, though. He had to stop for a rest in the middle of opening presents, he got thirsty. What two year old stops opening presents because they are thirsty? It was pretty funny.
    We missed you.

    Ha! Forgot this part.
    I am excited for you, students are going to be fun. Parents, we’ll see, but the kids are always great. Good luck!

    I love and hate the beginning of school each year–so many new things.
