School starts tomorrow.

 I can't believe it.

 I guess with all the moving and shopping and pool days, summer just slipped away from me. But, I'm ready. I'm so excited to get back on a schedule and get back to "real life." And, most especially, I'm excited to meet 20 sweet babies in the morning.

I hope they're as excited as I am.

I hope they're funny and like to laugh.

I hope I can be the teacher they absolutely deserve.

hope I have enough lockers.

I hope I can find patience in times of stress.

I hope they like hugs.

I hope they are eager to learn.

I hope I can be enthusiastic and excited for them at all times.

I hope everybody makes it home on the correct school bus.

I hope I can be firm and tough when I need to be, even if I don't like it.

I hope I can be tender and loving when I need to be, even if I'm not feeling it. 

I hope their parents trust me to take care of their most prized possessions.

I hope I don't let my own personal inconvenience effect how I teach them.

I hope they support each other and become a community.

As you can see, the room is all ready for them.
