Today was my last first day of school with children. I think there will many of these "last" moments this year. It's a different feeling. The same nerves, the same jitters, the same excitement of that first day of school, but with an edge of anticipation of what will I be doing at this time next year. It's a good feeling.
My timetable this year is still a bit of a jumble, but I think more manageable than last year. I am teaching all of the Core French - Grades 4 to 8, all of the primary music - JK to Grade 4, computer skills for JK to Grade 4, and a bit of literacy activities for JK/SK. Still a mix, still a very busy day!
I finished another pair of socks for Christmas gift giving while we were away this summer. Some very old Regia jacquard yarn that makes for some very brightly coloured socks!
I've also received a new order of frill and ruffle scarf yarns for the shop. I haven't managed to get them all listed yet - maybe this weekend. I've been knitting up a couple for samples and eventually for gifts.
They are quick knits, and although they are not my favourite thing to knit, the gift recipients love them!
And now I'm off to crash on the couch. No knitting tonight. I forget how tired I get this first week of school. Exhausted!
