Tomorrow Chris and I head back to work at our schools. This week is our week to get everything ready and then next Monday the kids come back. Even though it has been a super busy summer while I took more classes for my masters and completed my library science practicum, it still was a great summer, even if it was stressful at times. I accomplished a lot and I am ready to get back into the routine of things. Sure, starting a new school year is tough. Having a brand new group of students to get to know, and having to start from square one takes patience. Reteaching rules and expectations can get tiresome, especially since this will be my 9th year to do it, but the kids eventually get the hang of it and things start to get easier. So to me the end of summer is always bittersweet.
Here are some random pictures from our summer that I never had a chance to post. A few are of me at my practicum in the libraries I worked in and then the rest are of a fun family trip we got to take to Breckenridge, Colorado. It was our one trip of the summer and it was great!
Sadly, I never got a picture of my mentor librarian at the high school.
After I was done at the high school I started at an elementary library.
Mary hired a clown and the kids loved her! I have always kind of had a fear of clowns, but this one was not scary at all! Ha!
Then onto our fun trip to Breckenridge. Here are just a few of our pictures from there.
Overall we had a great time, and a wonderful summer!
