Best Shot Monday


If you look closely at today's picture, you'll notice that the necklace says Ode to Joy. The sentiment is especially fitting since today is my first day back to school. I just love this time of year; the excitement, the newness, the energy, everything is fresh and full of promise.

Happy Back to School, everybody!

I just read your FB status, and the joy was bubbling over. You were so meant to be a teacher at this time in your life. Such lucky, lucky students. Have fun!!

Too early for school. Ours is still a couple weeks away. Enjoy those first few days. It will be nice when you get back in the routine.

I think that teachers have a different rhythm to the year, one which I envy! This fall-ish time is time to start anew, a time full of possibilities!

I hope that you have a wonderful class, a wonderful year!

We still have about 4 more weeks before we hear that one but I am taking each day until then and savoring the summer.

Ohhhh, happy to you!
Hope you've got a new box of sharp crayolas!
Wish I could pop into your room
(bet it's amazing) and place a shiny red apple on your desk.
Just for you.

I hope it is a great season for you. When I was a young girl, I loved to get a new plaid dress to wear for the first day of school. I didn't always get one, but when I did, I was sooooo excited!

Have a wonderful beginning week. We (the staff) start next Monday with students coming Thursday. Beginnings are exciting and also a little bit scary, aren't they?

Roban said...

Oh, my, what a lovely photograph! And that necklace. How perfectly, perfect it is for the new school year.

My new year started today, too. I hope YOURS is extra joyful!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I love your excitement. It sure seems that school starts early these days!

Back to school is always the most exciting time. Did you get a new outfit? I used to work in a store and all the teachers would come shopping for a first day of school dress. Hope your first day back was a lot of fun!
