I'm going back to school. There. I said it. The time is coming. My first official meeting is next Thursday evening--a week from today-- and then the week after that I am in meetings for my high school teaching job, and Grand Rapids Community College actually starts class, so I will be teaching there.
The summer has gone so dang fast. I feel that way every year, but this year it's different somehow.
Usually by this time, although I hate to see the summer go? I am ready to get back on a schedule and get to the business of being productive.
But this year, I don't really feel that way. Don't get me wrong, I love my job! But I fell in love with being a mom this summer. Even though Cort's being unemployed has been a strain on the family budget, it has been such a blessing being home as a family of three this summer--especially after our tumultuous spring with my PPD . We have had so much fun together these past couple months! We have really bonded as a family and I am forever grateful for that.
However, I am DETERMINED to have a super start to the school year! I have a new teaching assignment this year: Full time Spanish teacher at WPHS instead of English. I switched classrooms and am starting completely fresh! I also am teaching at GRCC again this fall.
So to kick off all this excitement? Next Monday Sluiter Nation is bringing you FIVE great giveaways!
And because I know homecoming and lesson planning and just the whole back to schoolness of it all will suck up a TON of my time, taking me away from you all? I have NINE guest bloggers lined up for the month of September! They are my VERY FAVORITE bloggers of all time and I get to share them with you right here! They will all be writing on the theme of school...so get ready!
Is your mind blown yet? Good.
