*Nerves* - Queen of the First Grade Jungle


I feel a little bit like it is the first day of school. I have big butterflies in my tummy, because bright and early tomorrow morning my blogging/school buddy *Claire* and I are headed to Cincinnati for the blogger meet-up hosted by Abby and Michelle. (P.S. if you haven't visited Claire's blog you definitely should! She is a special education teacher at my school who has great ideas and a great perspective!)

This means a couple of things:
1. I get a whole day without kids(love mine to death, but grownup days are fun too!).
2. I get to be around people who are very passionate about what they do.
3. I get to eat some YUMMY food.

I am so excited but very nervous! Wish me luck!

  1. Katie,
    I understand completely! I met up with other bloggers out here in California at the kindergarten conference and I was so nervous ahead of time. Seriously, I was meeting teachers that I ADORED online and thought, "What if we don't get along?" BUT WE DID!!!! Then we even had lunch together the next day. I can hardly wait to repeat the experience!! So enjoy every moment of your time together!!

  3. Have fun and can I ask just one thing?!?! Take pictures!!!!!!! Hope you girlies have a total blast!!!!! :)

  5. I am so jealous! You will have a great time!
    I totally know why you are nervous -- I was too for the So Cal meet up! But as soon as we started talking, it was just like being with a great group of friends who I'd known my whole life. :)
    I can't wait to hear all about it!

  6. I am nervous too! I'll be there tomorrow. I am actually excited to be meeting YOU because I have used so many of your ideas in my classroom. And we already have a special connection - your student teacher (Bre) is my sister-in-law! :o) You should have seen my reaction when she told me that you were your cooperating teacher. I feel like I am meeting some celebrities tomorrow. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep! See ya tomorrow!!!


  7. Thanks for the words pf encouragement all! Oh yay April! See you there!

  8. Oh, you are too much!!!! I hope you had fun and I'm sorry we didn't get to talk more!!!! That's why we need to have an overnight!!!! Where jammies and yoga pants are encouraged...and we're not separated by a wall!!!!

  12. Sub-prime loaning is perceived by an assortment of different names too. These incorporate terms, for example, additional opportunity loaning, non prime loaning and close prime loaning. It was in the year 2007 amid the period of the assigned "Credit Crunch" that the term and idea of Sub-prime loaning really developed. www.usapaydayloanstore.com/chicago
