Monday musings

So, both kiddos are officially back in school now. Nattie did well getting herself organized this morning; she and Iain went out to the bus stop together. Then, almost 2 hours later it was Jamie's turn. After Jamie left, Iain and I went out for breakfast together (a tradition for us on "back to school day") before I went for my first full day working at the school.
Everything went really well! It turns out I get to supervise the 1st grade recess, so I got to watch Jamie playing with his friends :) The rest of my time was spent with 5th grade - in the classroom, and then taking the kiddos to lunch and recess. On my way out, I met the principal and she asked me if I'd be interested in also being the aide for the morning kindergarten now I'll be working 9.30am - 1.30pm every day, with a mix of kindergarteners, 1st graders and 5th graders! I will take my gym clothes with me and go to the gym on the way home...and my degree work will fit in around all that. Phew!
Today's photo is one I took this weekend of one of our cats, Sally. This is the one who was diagnosed with diabetes several months ago. She gets insulin shots twice a day now and is doing really well! Yeah!
Come back and visit tomorrow for TCP Tuesday! I'll be hosting the Color Challenge this week :)
