By the numbers

7: Number of days until the kids start school.

12: Number of children who are currently registered for first grade.

16: Number of desks that are set up for student use.

10: Number of extra desks that are piled in the back of the room (at least until I get a final head count).

Oh well. Despite the ridiculously low enrollment, things are going smoothly. The classroom is almost entirely ready. I just need to shove a few more things in the closet before the kids start.

Even though the class list isn't finalized, I put up this year's "welcome" bulletin board... there's a name on each grape.

I left a few grapes open in case any other kids show up. Doesn't hurt to be optimistic, huh?
