Wisdom teeth removed, finishing summer school, wedding anniversary, lots of cheerleading stuff, Sean starting his school year three weeks earlier, syllabus writing and rewriting and editing and double-checking and rewriting, college workshops, after-school coaching, the beginning of a senior year, Sean's birthday this past weekend, and that's it for August.
My new newly relocated office at school (including the chair I covered).
Um, this first week was no joke.
I worked everyday from 8am until 10pm.
I typed, "Thank you so much for your interest. Unfortunately, the class is full", in what felt like one thousand emails.
I sweat my way through a classroom barely having air conditioning on a 95 degree day. Super attractive.
I checked my online class constantly...terrified that it wouldn't work. (minus a couple small glitches, it totally worked)
I couldn't find parking, despite getting to campus three hours before my class. I ended up having to pay to park despite already purchasing a $65 parking pass for the semester. State schools are just the best.
I had ants crawling all over my stuff in the community college classroom. Apparently they are all through the building. Awesome.
We can add the senior year official leaving for school portrait to yesterday's collection of photos. This was the first time in high school that he wasn't off to an early morning cheer practice before performing in the welcome assembly...since they scheduled it for the second day of school this year.
Mac's schedule includes culinary arts, digital photography, a life skills class and government.
I'm super jealous, I want to go to school with him to cook, take pictures, learn how to handle life and to discuss what the heck is going on with this presidential election stuff.
(Oh and I only started to tear up for a second...and Mac totally laughed at me)
I cannot imagine that tomorrow will be tear free as I take Mac's last first day of school photos for high school. I decided to further rip my heart out and dig through computer files to gather as many first day of school photos as I could. Where does time go???
And in continuing with my endless sappiness I also gathered these...laughing, jumping, yawning, rolling his eyes and always humoring his mom who has always insisted on taking dozens of photos.
