Yes, like everyone else, my child started school last week for the first time! Olivia and I were both very excited. She happily went left me to go start her school career. I envy her! I wasn't excited just because it means being able to run some errands with just one child, but because I REALLY LOVE SCHOOL! I wish I were going! Or teaching. I miss teaching so much (not enough to put my children in daycare, but enough that I know I will do it again one day when they are all in school).
I love the start of a new school year, school-supply shopping, new classrooms, new hopes and dreams of what the year will hold. The smell of new textbooks, art supplies, it is all so much fun. I loved every year of my schooling and always looked forward to going back after summer vacation!
And so..... I was also enthused to start my own class last night! I have to renew my Florida Teaching Certification (you have to renew every 5 years), and since I am not currently teaching, I have to take some college courses to do so. Darn:) I started a painting class last night at the local state college (where I could actually be teaching myself if I was so inclined....). Just registering for my class and getting my parking decal, etc was so much fun. Yes, I have a masters, and now I am taking a course at the state college. But I don't care!!! Its school!!! Hooray for school!!
anyone else with me??
