Been busy this week

It's a good thing though. I had a lot to do before school starts next week. I have gone to CPR training, Child Abuse Awareness training, New parent orientation, and meet the teacher. It's sort of funny that the kids and parents ask me things and seem to be under the impression that I have a clue. I wish I did. I'm making this up as I go. It seems to be working so far.

I have asked Mrs. Trask to make me a list of things she wants from me during the day. So far, it sounds like I'm just there to be a second set of eyes. That is fine, but I'm sure I have some other duties. I'd like to have a clue.

Becca got to meet her teacher today and meet some of her classmates. Poor little girl was worried last night that the other kids wouldn't want to be her friend. Awwwwww. I'm sure that is a normal fear. Once we got in the room she didn't seem worried any more.

Bridget went with us and she showed Becca how things work in the room. Bridget was happy because she got to hang out at the school all morning. She got to see teachers, friends, and have lunch. I was relieved the girls could hang out while I went to be met by the students in our room.

The school has a lot of international students and I am stressed about learning these names and the parents names. Yikes! They are hard.

Tomorrow I have a staff meeting and lunch. After that, Bridget has an open house at her school and we find out her teacher. Exciting stuff!

It's amazing how much kids think about these things. You have to be on your toes! Sounds like things are going well!
