Excitement

There are obvious reasons I am not excited to go back to school:
1. Waking up early
2. The exhaustion I have once I come home everyday
3. My thoughts always relating back to school somehow
4. Only being able to eat or potty at certain times of the day
5. Having to get ready
6. Being on my feet
7. The stress of wanting all my kids to be successful
8. Etc. Etc. Etc.

But, on a more positive note, I was brainstorming with a friend some things that do excite me about going back:
I am excited to see my co-workers/friends. I am excited to be back on a routine. I am excited to see the 2 little friends in my class who always try to "hide" from me as they walk into my classroom just to see me laugh. I am excited about the one little friend who grins from ear to ear. I am excited about seeing the silly faces that another little friend likes to make to get laughs. I am excited to hear about the Christmas stories of one of my little friends and to see them chuckle at their "ditsy-ness". I am excited to get a hug and a "Hey Mrs. Hutchins" from 2 of my little friends that consistently do so. I am excited to hear one of my little friends laugh and the way they kick their head back and forth when they do so. I am excited to see my little friends be excited to see each other and tell their stories from over the break. I am excited to share again in the excitement of learning and the joy of discoveries in my little friends' eyes.

And, most of all, I am excited to sleep tomorrow night. Because after all of this excitement I will be T-I-R-E-D.
