Heads or Tails??

Skittles has started a new Tuesday meme titled Heads or Tails. Each week she provides a different theme and it's up to you as to how you interpret it. This should be fun!! Won't you go and sign up???


This weeks' theme is: Beginnings


This theme is right up my alley as today marked the beginning of a new school year (it was the first day teachers had to report). Drew is beginning first grade this year and Mikayla is beginning 4 year old kindergarten.

I am beginning a new stage as a mommy because both of my kiddos will be at the school with me for the first time! I am looking so forward to this!!


I am also beginning a new stage professionally as it was announced today that I am the 2007-2008 Teacher of the Year for my district!! That means a state application to complete and the state interview. I am still in shock over this as there are SO many wonderfully talented educators in our district.


Lots of beginnings around here - how 'bout you?

I did this meme, too. It's cool to be there for the very first week, and it'll be fun to support Skittles. And naturally, good luck to you and your wee ones with the 07-08 school year. Does your husband feel at all left out, not getting all revved up to do something scholastic?

wow, congratulations to you!! And congratulations on a new school year too. What great beginnings.

Skittles said...

Wow.. Congrats on Teacher of the Year!!! How exciting!

And both your little ones will be in school now. Will it be as traumatizing with you being at school with them? LOL

My oldest grandchild starts kindergarten this year and it will be a three generational cry.. His mom, me across the state, and my mom in Florida. :)

Congratulations! Excellent award and show some appreciation for the work teachers do above and beyond the "job". In my world teachers would make 75K a year starting!!!

Congratulations on Teacher of the Year! I am really excited about the school year beginning also. I'll still have my two year old home with me, but my teenager is all hyped up about seeing all her friends!
