Back to School Time

It's that time of year again.  It's back to school time.

I had a good summer spent moving and getting settled in our condo. I also had the opportunity to visit family and to rest.  I'm ready to get going and have a wonderful school year with our classroom of three year old children.

I had a special blessing yesterday during our church service.  Pastor Dan asked all of the teachers, teachers aides, and anyone who works with children's education to come up to the front of the sanctuary.  He included the home school moms too.  He thanked us for our dedication and commissioned us for service.  He then prayed for us.  What a blessing!

I am fortunate to work with a wonderful teacher.  The two of us enjoy each other and work so well together.  This will be our third school year together in the three's.  Both of us want to remain positive throughout the year.

I captured this photo of Heidi in our classroom.  She was actually talking to a prospective parent.  And no, we don't get to wear shorts. It was during a week of preparing our classroom.  The words written are from Heidi's Facebook page and I just happened to add them to this photo.  I think it's a great way to keep her accountable, don't you?


I had to share this cute wreath I found on Pinterest (of course).  Isn't it the cutest?


And I had to add this saying that I found on Pinterest.  This is what all of the children in our class learn to recite.  When we pass out scissors and they get green instead of yellow, the little ones say "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit."  It works!

I'm still continuing to count those every day blessings.

#467 Finally getting settled in our condo
#468 The opportunity to work with 17 new students who are three years old
#469 Being prayed for by my pastor
#470 Having a summer off (this never happened when I worked as a nurse)
#471 Having access to my treadmill since Greg unpacked all of the boxes that were in that space
#472 My rotator cuff is feeling better after working with my Physical Therapist
#473 Having lunch with my good friend Helen
#474 My mother-in-law finally got to see the renovation we've done at the condo
#475 Home cooked meals
#476 A kitchen that is workable

I'm linking up with Ann of A Holy Experience for Multitudes on Monday.



Blessings and love,

I love your passion for teaching your little ones! I know the positive attitude you and Heidi share makes a wonderful classroom.

Modern Day Disciple said...

I meant to mention to you after the comment you left me about the job interview. I originally wanted to work with children and was in school for PE. Anyway, I teach Sunday School and considered working with children as you are now...anyway, love the way you let Him direct you, Debbie. Wherever He leads we will follow. And who knows what's ahead. Thank you for being an encourager!

Joan said...

Can you believe summer is almost over? Seems like it just began. I pray that your school year is blessed. I know the little ones will be blessed by knowing you.

Heidi said...

I love that you will hold me accountable! I also love that we will help each other stay off the treats in the lounge :) I look forward to a wonderful school year with you at my side, Debbie!

BARBIE said...

I bet you are excited about your new little ones. That's wonderful that your Pastor called you and other educators forward to pray for you. What a blessing. Thankful to hear you are getting settled in your new place.

Denise said...

Enjoyed this.

Denise said...

Kind of bittersweet that we are counting down the last days of Summer! However there is so much to look forward to, and I know how excited you are! (I am personally excited to start watching football-ha!) What a special blessing for you and all the other teachers yesterday; you are a blessing too Debbie!

Have a joyful week!
Denise

We're preparing for school to start in a mere 9 days!! We can't believe it. It's been a fantastic summer, but it's hard to think it's slowly coming to an end.

Those 17 little three year old's are in for an amazing year! They get a 2-fer ~ you and Jesus! Great deal:))

Blessings...

Debbie said...

Good morning! So glad you had a good summer Debbie and you are ready and excited about another year with the little ones. I wish my 3 year old grand daughter could be in your room. She is such a sweetie with personality plus, haha She says the cutest things. I bet you really enjoy them. I love the age. I love that your Pastor prayed for all of you! Enjoy your day! HUGS

Joan Davis said...

Back to school! I remember those days with our kids...in fact, just earlier this morning I was thinking how quickly their childhood went. (But, Now, I am blessed with two great grown-up kids!) What a blessing to have the opportunity to teach three year-olds each year. I am looking forward to your posts and the cute pictures you always post! So glad you had a great summer and that you are getting settled in your condo!

Love, Joan

P.S. Love that wreath!!

We're having our "back to school" Sunday in a couple of weeks. I'm going to make sure I get prayed over as well; I'll be homeschooling our youngest two this year!

I hope everything gets off to a grand start, Debbie. It's going to be wild!

Laurie said...

What a blessing you and Heidi are for these new little 3 year olds who will be in your class this year, Debbie! And as I know from my own teaching experience, those blessings will be poured back on you both as you serve the Lord in this way.

financial planners said...

Hi. Both of you will inspire a lot of kids in your class. I'm sure of it. They'll learn a lot from you.

Sassy Granny ... said...

Something told me you'd be readying for another school year. Arizona begins earlier than Washington State, and I've enjoyed all the FB & Twitter inputs about harrie moms & spit-shined kiddos.

Enjoy the new school year, Debbie. Those wee ones are sooooo blessed to have your TLC.

bp said...

I enjoyed your post. I will be praying for you as you begin a new year with new faces.
Hugs,
Bethany

Anne said...

I'm a teacher too and I know what it feels to begin a new school year. Keep smiling and the kids will smile with you.

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

Your list just makes me smile...and I nod, God you are good...all the time

Blessings on your new school year...what a blessing

Toia said...

I enjoyed reading your post. I have been a preschool teacher and assistant director for years. Since I retired a few months ago, this will be my first year not returning to preschool. However, I do have 3 children of my own that I need to make sure they are ready for their first day of school. :) Blessings to you on your new school year. :)

Beth in NC said...

Ha, that little chant is great for us adults too! You get what you get and you don't throw a fit. :o) Love it.

I really love that wreath. What a cute idea!

Love,
Beth
