These first few weeks are harder and longer than I remembered! By the end of May you forget what the kids are like in August. I just have to remember...patience! It's a long (and rewarding) process! I've heard that you grow especially attached to your first class of kids. I can understand that! I see my old kids in the 3rd grade hall and wish they were still in my class! This is not to say that I don't love my new kids... I do. They're precious (most of the time). And I know I'll love them just as much by the end of the year. We've just got a lot of work to do!
Needless to say, I'm tired when I get home from school. I'm trying to go to bed earlier...but my sleeping habits are still a little out of whack. For example...yesterday morning I woke up and realized I was wearing my robe and a towel on my head...and my hair was wet. I had taken a shower in the middle of the night...while I was still asleep. I have no idea how I didn't wake up. Matt says he heard me get up but just assumed it was time for me to get ready. I have to get up an hour or two before him usually. This might be the craziest thing I've done in my sleep. I was hoping I used shampoo and washed my hair because I was too tired to take another shower that morning. My hair wasn't especially cute yesterday. I guess I'm not the best hair-washer in my sleep...go figure. Last night was better. I did wake up once thinking I was late for school. I hate that feeling! I started to run around, but Matt woke up and told me to go back to sleep. Hopefully tonight will be better!
