Well, I mean my time after school. I can tell you where my time goes between 8AM and 6PM. I worked the afterschool program every day this week so help get it started. From now on, I'll just work the 4-5 shift and let someone come in my room to finish the day off with those that are waiting on their parents who work to come get them. It's rewarding, developing sweet relationships with only 5 or 6 children.
As hard as it has been for me to adjust to Kindergarten, I'm already seeing the fruits of my labor. I'm amazed at how much the children have learned in just seven days. They are already doing better walking in the halls, eating lunch in the cafeteria, using the bathroom at assigned times. Soon I know the real teaching will begin, which is my passion, I've discovered.
I only brought home one small task to do to get ready for the week. Everything else has been done or can be done Monday morning. This weekend is about catching up.
I did a photo shoot right before school started and just finished editing the pictures today. There are several wonderful pictures. This is one of my favorites. Getting these pictures finished was a major item on my to do list. You make those, right? I'm not the only one who must make a list to remind herself of all that needs to be done....RIGHT?
I'm taking another on-line photo editing class and loving it. Of course, everyone else is on day 13 and I'm plugging along on day 3. But I'll get there. Hopefully, by the end of the weekend, I'll have a few more lessons finished. Luckily, once you take a class at this website, you have access to it forever! Wonderful concept! LOVE this that I learned. How fun to use this technique to actually add some text to a picture. This was just my practice with one of my favorite verses.
M is needing some serious Mama time. We've been lucky this week that our friend, Aubs, was able to take care of her for us. They love each other. M tells me all about the fun things they did during the day. One more week of full time work for Aubs, then M will start preschool each morning.
We've got a few other fun things planned for the weekend. I'll get some pictures up soon. I hope you're doing great. My blog reading list is quite extensive. I'm adding that to my to do list now.
