Currently September and Back to School!

Happy September!  I am loving the little hints of fall that are making their way to us...cooler mornings, and crisp evenings...I love fall!  It's my favorite season.  I can't wait until next month to go apple picking!  I'm once again linking up with Farley for her fabulous Currently!
I love that for the last one we're focusing on taking care of ourselves...as teachers I know that most of us put our own well being on the back burner in order to tend to the demands of teaching and our families.  In the long run we're really hurting ourselves if we're not taking care of ourselves when we can.  My goals for this school year are to make time for exercise, to take less of the job home with me, and to try to focus on thinking positively about myself.  I really tend to have a negative inner voice directed at myself personally, and I want to work on that.  There's power in positive thinking! =) 

My own boys were sad to see summer come to an end, but I think they are getting back into the swing of things with school.  Our youngest is in 5th grade and is at the middle school with his older brother who's in 8th grade this year.  He is so happy to be back in school with his big brother, even if only for this year.  I can't believe how fast time is flying by, they are turning into such handsome young men if I do say so myself!  These were pictures from their first morning back to school...they were up and at 'em, but  by the end of the day they were both so tired!  Nothing says tired like back to school tired, that's for sure!  I plan to post soon some pictures of my classroom set up for this year...I'm a little behind the ball on that one!  Have a great week! =)

  2. Thanks Sarah, although that was much to the dismay of our 8th grader! The second day of school I did it too with their outfits and the response I got was "Seriously Mom? Is this going to be a habit?" Guess he doesn't appreciate having his little brother dressed so much like him! ;) lol

  4. I love the fact that my family is back on a schedule now, too! Although with that schedule comes homework, extracurricular activities, etc., but nonetheless, a schedule. I am so glad I found your blog through Farley's linky, and I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    1. Welcome Andrea! I agree...the extracurricular activities keep us going too...the boys have different activities this fall, one soccer, one football (ahhh!!!) so we'll be going, going, going...but at least we know what's happening on what day...thanks so much for stopping by! =)
