It's Back to Work Today

It's back to work for me today after having Christmas vacation from December 23-January 3 then kids getting sick all last week and to top it off having snow days the last two days.  I don't know if you know this but most teachers really do love their jobs.  As much as I love spending time with my own children, I also love coming to work.  When I came into my classroom this morning there were cards, a jewelry party invitation, and lots of mail to open but there were several emails I hadn't read, all hoping my family was feeling better and how much the kids missed me while I was gone.  That was before 7:55 a.m. then the kids came down the hall screaming "Mrs. Gehrt is back" and "Look it's Mrs. Gehrt" squealing with delight.  I feel blessed everyday that I have a job like the one I have.  Even after twelve years of teaching the same grade in the same school, I can still say I love my job. 
I have put up tobacco and hay in the fields, waited tables, sold shoes, worked fast food, and at Wal-mart.  I don't feel like teaching kindergarten is a job.  Where else can you find a job where the people you work around make you laugh and smile every 15 minutes, they make you artwork and self portraits everyday, they are always upbeat and never have a negative thing to say about you or another person, and they live their lives to play. 
Yes, I love those days off but I also love coming to work!  My J-O-B, (Joyous Occupation of Babes)!

A little girl made this picture for me today.  My house is the purple house right in the center of the earth.  Her house is the top left blue house right next to Santa's in the North Pole :)
