Life has begun again. Gone are the schedule-less days of the holidays. We are all back to school. The kids have places to be and homework to do. I have places to be and homework to do. Even though we are running around all the time, there still seems to be dishes in the sink, and the pile of laundry in the basement is scary. This semester, I began my student teaching experiences. In my EC/ECSE program at the U, I have a total of four student teaching experiences to complete (early childhood, early childhood special ed, birth to 3 and a primary grade). I am now student teaching at the lab school on campus in a 3/4/5 year old class. So far it has been all about getting to know the children and the room etc. Lesson plans and lead teaching are just around the corner. Needless to say the next ten weeks are going to be super busy.

To help us/me forget all the millions of things that we/I are supposed to be doing, I am posting a Totoro (toe-toe-row) video. Sit back and watch a cute playful puppy and some happy kids.
