So I had to go to the lab later in the day because it was the first day of school with kids and I wanted to be there to lay down some rules and routines. The clinic called 30 minutes after I left the lab and asked where my lab was because they didn't have my results yet. When I told her I'd just left the lab, she said they probably wouldn't get my results until tomorrow. Grrrr....how I wish I'd flown out of school at lunch even if it meant being late for the afternoon. Now fighting the urge to drive 20 minutes back into town to get another HPT.
So I guess I'll blog about the first day of school, in the interest of keeping my mind off delayed test results...haha like that could happen. Anyway, we had a great first day! I'm very excited about this year, more excited than I've been about school in a long time. For the first time ever, I felt ready to walk in and teach this morning. Usually I'm running around like a mad woman trying to prepare those last minute details. 16 out of the 19 on my list showed up and they all seem like sweet, funny, smart kids. Most of them brought a lot of school supplies, which is good because in our area people don't always provide supplies. One mom said that the list at the store said they needed 7 boxes of crayons. Thinking it's a typo but we'll have supplies to replenish with in a few months. I can't wait to see what growth these children show me this year.
Now should I go get that HPT?
