Today was the first day back with students. They came in VERY excited and raring to go. Many of them actually brought in most of the supplies from the supply list, which is always a nice surprise. I started the morning with neat and organized piles of each supply on my front table. 10 minutes later I had a supply MOUNTAIN. I have had years were hardly anyone brought in the supplies we had requested, so, having a mountain of supplies is a wonderful problem to have. As I sit here writing this post, I realize that I should have taken a picture to share...oh well, maybe tomorrow. Um, yeah, that mountain of supplies is still looming, casting a beautiful supply shadow over the the pile of papers I didn't put away either.
