This happens every year. I’m always wondering where the summer went. If only I had one more morning to sleep in. I wish I had spent just one more weekend at the beach. I still have three books on my Kindle that I haven’t gotten to yet. Once school starts next week I don’t know when I’ll find time to read them.
How many more days? I’m tired of just sittin’ around all day. This summer took longer than last. I’m glad they gave us that reading list. I hope the teacher will be cool with me reading all but two of the books. The library didn’t have ’em and mom wouldn’t let me buy any. Said they cost too much.
I’m really wondering how I’m going to be able to cover all of these new standards and teach a brand new grade. Sometimes I wonder if they really think about all of the changes we have to make at once.
I guess I understand why I couldn’t get those books. Since Mom got a new job and we had to move, money has been tight. I just wish I didn’t have to share a bed with my brother. If he’d stop having those nightmares I could probably get some sleep....
