Back to School

Yesterday was the first day of school. It went great, but I was so exhausted by the end of the day - I forget every year how long it takes me to adjust to being back with students all day!

Anyway, I made a these cards - one for the other Kindergarten Teacher and one for the Aide in my room.
I'm still trying to make it to 100 posts...this is 97. Not sure when I'll get there now, but if you still want a CHA set keep your eyes peeled for my giveaway when I finally get to 100!

Have a great day!

I am keeping my eyes on your blog - but not just for the give-away! I love seeing your creativity. School starting is exhausting. I'm finishing my 2nd week and still can't keep my head above water. I hope your year gets started smoothly!
