Anyone else ever feel like the first month of school is so intense that it carries the year’s greatest highs and lows all at once? I am always in awe of how much I look forward to the end of September and the beginning of October! Tonight, I am re-defining some standard September vocabulary in my life…. I would love to hear your definitions! Or, better yet, your first-month-of-school words! And I will be back to read your posts tomorrow! http://jenbaum-laughoftenlovemuch.blogspot.com/2013/09/a-lesson-in-teacher-vocabulary.html
Told myself I was not going to bed until I sliced!
