That is how I would describe this last week: overwhelmingly wonderful! I have had lots to blog about this week- but haven't had the time or energy to do so until now.
To begin with I started my new job. I am not going to blog too much about that. Mostly because I signed a waver saying I wouldn't blog or post stuff on facebook about it. And considering how much I am LOVING this new job- I don't want to get fired. In a nut shell, the people I am working with are awesome. It has been so much fun setting up an new classroom- all the organizing and creating is SO UP MY ALLEY!! I have been in heaven. It has been a wonderful challenge with the new grade level!! I do have to say it has been really hard to get used to transitioning from a huge school system to a small private one. And I think I am going to get really spoiled by that!!
This week was also kindergarten curriculum night. Matt and I went to the school to see what the year will hold for our three kindergartners. I quickly discovered another hurdle of having triplets. Each teacher held their own session. And yes, for the most part the boys will be doing the same thing, but each teacher also has their own way of doing things. I went to Alex's class. Matt went to Josh's class. And we have no idea what Zach is going to do. Just kidding. After the session ended we quickly went to Zach's teacher and introduced ourselves and got his packet of stuff. And in that packet- I am going to complain here- was the SAME paperwork that I ALREADY filled out a few weeks ago. Granted some of the blanks were filled in but I would say only half was. So I had to spend time refilling it all out. SO NOT COOL!! Sitting in Alex's class, listening to his teacher's spiel was overwhelming. I started to tear up. I can't believe they are going to kindergarten. This time has flown by so fast!! They are growing up too quickly. Plus, I think I went into it with the attitude of I was a teacher before in this school district I know what's going on. But I didn't. Kindergarten is a bigger deal than I thought. So I was one of THOSE moms. I didn't bawl...just got chocked up. So much stuff to think about and do.
The next night was Safe Walk to School Night. This was when the boys got to go to school to meet their teacher. Matt and I were pulled in three different directions as everyone was so excited!! We stuck together and went to Alex's class first.
Next we rushed to Zach's classroom.
Overall, I am really happy with everything. They have very nice teachers and a great school. I am excited to see how this year goes. It should be lots of fun seeing how much they grow and learn!
This past weekend we went to get new tennis shoes for the boys. Normally I wouldn't find that blog worthy but Josh and Zach found Star Wars shoes. They thought they won the lottery. Lots of cheering and excitement when they saw them. Alex was set on tie shoes. He has pretty much learned to tie them on his own this weekend!! Granted it takes a while but he can do it!! Anyway with the Star Wars shoes came masks. The lady at the shoe store was nice enough to just give one to Alex. We went to Elieen's Cookies after we got our shoes to see Drew and get a little treat. Here they are waiting to get their cookies. My boys seriously crack me up every day!!
