In my 6 years of teaching, we have always gone back on a Wednesday. I just assumed we did this year, so I was telling everyone I went back on the 13th. Well, I got an email from my principal today and she mentioned something regarding the opening day on the 14th...Thursday! Jack Smith decided to change the day on us, I suppose!
Those of you who know me well know that although I love teaching and am absolutely thrilled to have Honors Reading this year, my heart is at home with my boy. So, this piece of news was like an extra little gift! Although I could technically go to Kings Dominion with the youth group now, there is no way that I am spending my last day without Caleb! (not to mention that they're not getting home until Midnight and I have to be at school at 8 a.m. the next day!) Sooooo that is my peice of good news for today.
Updates: Caleb can now climb up into his high chair (it's the kind that straps onto the chair) by himself. He has also learned that if he jumps hard and long enough on the baby gate peddle, he can open it! So far, he has only accomplished this once before I hear him and take him away, but it's only a matter of time. He is totally fine on stairs now, so I'm not worried about him getting hurt. I just don't like the idea of him going upstairs and getting into stuff (tissues, toilet paper, the toilet brush, etc.) I'm hoping to keep the gate on for a little longer. At least I can hear him jumping on the peddle!
