Back to School

It's back to school for the kids today; they each went in for a half day at the end of last week, but today is the first official day when all students are attending. Nattie is starting 7th grade and Jamie is starting 2nd grade. Yikes!
I'm also returning to work, but this year I'll have a different role in the school. I'll be working 9am - 3pm in the classrooms every day with the 2nd, 4th and 5th grade kiddos. Our main focus will be reading :) It has always been one of my favorite things to do with Nattie and Jamie, and now I get to spend my day helping other kids to improve their reading too. I'm very lucky :)
Keeping with the "Back to School" theme, here's a card I made with a sketch from Unscripted Sketches and a stamp set from My Favorite Things called "I {Heart} Books". The little girl on this image reminds me of Nattie with her dark hair, her glasses, and with lots of concentration on that book...have a great Monday!

How fun getting paid to read with the kids! Hope the first day is great for all three of you.

Super cute card! I can see the resemblance to Nattie as well. Harland and Christopher started school last week. Where did the summer go? Linda

I grew up with a book in hand always, loved reading -- still do it's just trying to find the time!!! How some people don't find joy in reading, I will never understand. Adorable little image!
