Miss Laura....who me?

Well, I survived my first day teaching preschool today. One of the hardest things for me to prep for was what I wanted the kids to call me. I didn't want them to call me Mrs. 'so and so' because to me that is my mother in law and I wasn't comfortable with "teacher Laura", so I asked some great friends and the conclusion was, "Miss Laura". It still sounds funny to me....it'll take some getting used to. Overall, it was a good day mixed with a few moments of, "Oh no, now what am I going to do?" It is going to be a learning process and I may need to make a few adjustments as the days go on. I hope the kids and parents are willing to give the program and the changes a chance, as it will be the kids that benefit. I am excited to go back on Thursday,I hope the kids are too!
I got to see my Grandma today...she is visiting at my Uncles so the kids and I drove the hour to see her. Normally it is a 10 hour drive to her house, so I was much happier to make this trip.
Not too much else really going on...watching American Idol tonight as we all like to see the bad singers...man they are showing a lot of them this time! Tomorrow is hopefully going to be a scrap day for me. That's it, that's all...for now.
