Late Night Learning?

Friday was the start of football season so You know who went to the 1st game? ME!  The next morning I was thinking back & came up with something worthy of blogging, comparing the 1st day of school to a football game.
RED= game
BLUE= school

You walk in & you feel extremely late because there are about 10 big circles of kids you know but you don't want to budge in so you just walk around a bit.
You walk in & feel very strange the 1st day because everything is new and nothing is the same as last year.  Some of your friends moved away or are not in your classes anymore.

After 30 min. of walking & wandering you find someone you know & haven't seen forever that also doesn't have a group & is with people she doesn't like but, doesn't want to stand out for being alone.
Around the 3-5th day you have a group of 3-5 people that are in some of your classes & welcomed you to their lunch table.

after 1/2 time you are comfortable with your surroundings & are having fun with the people you've found.
You know more about your teachers & the way they operate.  Everyone in the class has a position (shy kid in the back, know it all, class clown, etc...)

There's only 25 min. left of the game & you feel like you just got here & you're having a blast!
Things are gliding by & everyone but you wants school to end so they can leave.

Do you feel the same way?  Was this a good comparison?

Full Of Everything

I have not written in a while, shame on me!  I am trying to get into a regular routine now that summer has come to an end.  A part of my daily routine will be blogging more unlike this summer. Also now as summer comes to an end it is time to reflect, here goes nothing!

June:  It wasn't realistic that it was all ready summer and it felt like there was so much time left to do everything. Wrong!  June was the beginning of my volunteering services for the library, farmers market, VBS, & the school.  I also started to have 2 guest bloggers here, they have been great!

July:  I vacationed & watched a friends house while they were away.  It was also a great month for biking & mowing.

August: I ended the summer with lots of helping at school, a party at the library, & the start of the Ambassadors at school.

For me this was not a typical summer because not once did I ever say "I'm bored."

Could You Make It?

I think middle school is full of opportunities!!! I think middle school is a great thing...the teachers are amazing, you aren't stuck in one room for 8 hours, how could it be better. Well, everything can get better, right?? I think middle school passing periods need to become longer. The teachers expect you to go to the restroom, get to your next class, and go to your locker (if needed) in 4 minutes. For me that is NOT enough time. I think 6 minutes would be better. Maybe that's just me.....but it's not long enough!!!
