Tomorrow morning, the school bell tucked away in the tower will peal a hello to new beginnings. While I'll definitely miss my lazy summer mornings and free time, my toes are tapping for it all to commence.
I met my students Thrusday afternoon during our welcoming picnic. So many of them had huge smiles plastered across their faces and I couldn't help but grin in response. They're ready. I'm ready. It's all so good!
Of course there will be problems and misteps. We're human after all. But as I told them, "Yes, we'll work hard, but we're also going to have a ton of fun!"
I'll miss last year's group; they were such a delight. Truth be told, though, I'm already in love with this year's group.
New beginnings...they're wonderfully awesome!
