CCEE'ers Go Back to School
Anne has been our CCEE Stampers hostess for the month of August, and this week she gave us a theme to work with ........Back to School. Well, as a retired middle school teacher, I have lots of friends who are returning to their classrooms this week. This card is dedicated to them, and will probably go to one for a b'day card at some point.
Now, for me, yesterday was our annual First Day of School Retiree Breakfast. We always have a fab time catching up on everyone's happenings/travels/stories. Yesterday was also the first day of my SEVENTH year of retirement. Time has just flown by......feels like yesterday that I wheeled my bag out of school for the last official time.
For those of you with children still in school, I wish each and everyone the most successful and fun school year possible. Know that the teachers are as anxious as the kids when a new year begins. There is always the hope and expectation that the year will go smoothly, that parents will be supportive, children will be excited to learn, that the administration will be flexible and have their back, and that the community will support the school and its endeavors. On the first day of school everyone is an optimist........and for all of the teachers, students, parents, administrators, and community members reading this, I wish for you a year with optimism in daily doses that last until June. Enjoy!!!!
Anyhoooooooo......be sure to go to the CCEE Stampers' Blog to check out the fabulous back to school creations of the rest of this tremendously talented and friendly team.
