it's the most wonderful time of the year!

Isn't this picture just the cutest? I love how eager the kids look as they're running for the bus. Hmmm, I wonder if there's cake waiting for them on the bus or something. In my experience, kids aren't usually quite this excited to get back to school.

Even if the kiddos aren't super pumped to get back to school, I always am! While I was visiting my parents over the summer and saw the back-to-school announcements on the marquis signs outside of my old schools, I got really excited to set up my classroom and for school to begin. Does that make me weird? Yeah, I thought so.

The kids arrive next Wednesday, and I can't wait to meet my new fourth grade friends! In the meantime, I've been learning my way around the school and setting up my classroom. Here's a quick tour:

Welcome back to school! This is the elementary building.

Part of the coffee plantation. The beans from these plants are harvested and roasted, and the coffee is served at special events.

Half of a sculpture outside the cafeteria...

...and the other half of the sculpture.

Check out the view from behind the school! The buildings you can [kind of] see in the background are part of downtown San Jose.

Classroom library and desks, just waiting for students to arrive

Get those pencils sharpened...it's just a few more days now!
