This has been an interesting start to the school year. I've done 2nd grade for the past 3.5 years, and this year switched to 3rd. People keep asking how I like it, and honestly... I'm still on the fence.
It's hard to tell what's a difference between 2nd and 3rd, and what's just a difference in the personalities of this class and last year's class. I'm also still very much getting used to this curriculum, while still scrounging up enough books for my class.
I've also switched grade level teams, which has been interesting... they are pretty different than the 2nd grade team, and I am more grateful than ever for some of the wonderful coworkers at my school.
I was ready for a long weekend, to be sure, even though I was feeling pretty sick by the end of last week.
Weekend plans included a trip to Cincinnati, to see fireworks from a riverboat and watch a Reds baseball game with family, but... my car battery has died. And when a car breaks down on a Sunday of a holiday weekend, it's a liiiittle tough to get it worked on.
So, instead of a trip... the husband and I hunkered down on the couch, ordered cheese sticks from the local pizza place, ate fresh-baked Funfetti cookies, and watched Indiana Jones movies. Got to make the most of it, right?
On the plus side, I'm feeling almost all better! Are the germs catching up with anyone else, now that some of us are a few weeks in to the school year?
