my feet hurt

Oh my gosh, y’all!  It’s been about ninety years since I last posted, and for that I do apologize.  

In-service started last Tuesday, and the kids came for a little while on Friday to get their schedules and set up their lockers.  Do you know how important it is to have a fully decorated locker in middle school (for girls, obviously)?  Let me tell you, it is a BIG deal.  I’m talking lockers fully lined with wrapping paper, shag rugs on the bottom, blinking lights when you open the door, and one girl even has a chandelier!

This is what I’m talking about!  I believe one girl has this exact locker somewhere on our hallway.  I think I had a mirror and a magnetic white board in my locker in middle school, but that was it.  Funny how things change.

Anyway, so Monday was our first full day, and then last night we had parent orientation.  I was in charge of leading the 7th grade orientation, and I think one parent commented after and said it was like going to comedy hour.  I don’t know if that was a good thing or bad thing for them, but at least I made them laugh!  I am really excited about this year – the kids seem very sweet and enthusiastic about pretty much everything.  Most people don’t understand middle schoolers, but I think they are pretty awesome (and yes, I do know that they are moody, hormonal, clumsy, and generally awkward kids, but it doesn’t bother me on most days).  We’ve only had three days of class, and I’ve already heard some pretty hilarious things.  One kid asked me if I was the type of teacher that was going to threaten to hurt him all the time (???) and several others keep saying “consecration camp” instead of “concentration camp” when discussing our summer reading.  I just love them!

I’ve worn heels everyday (wedges except for today…they may have been 4 inch heels…don’t preach to me about it…my feet already have that covered), and I can tell that I haven’t been wearing them all summer! I got used to living in my Reef flip flops or athletic shoes.  It’s definitely going to take me a little bit to get back into the swing of things – like getting up at 5 a.m. everyday – and I hope to be back to a regular blogging schedule soon.  Until then, random posts will pop up whenever I have a free second.  

I hope that y’all are having a wonderful week!  Catch me up on your lives!

much love,

natalie
