14 Boys

Yup, that's right.  After an exhausting day of screening incoming Kindergartners yesterday and hours of class building here is the final count:

boys 14
girls 10

For my fellow teacher bloggy friends does this not make you want to scream run away vomit? Aside from the fact we all have 24 students this year (last year we were at 22 max) 14 boys just seems like...well a lot!! But all of the K classes are the same boy heavy, just like last year.   Those poor boys will be competing like the animals on Wild America in high school and beyond. 

Yesterday was my first official day of school from 7:30 til 5. I was soooo pooped when I got home. But I ended up going on a Tar.get run with my sister and drove around the surrounding neighborhood to see what houses are out there for sale. Fun and exciting as we have been talking about the possibility of looking into buying a house, house as we have a townhouse after the Halloween season is over. And I figure it isn't too early to see what's out there. =0)

Actually talked with Hubby last night for a good hour about all that is coming up.  I did great, only a few tears which I haven't done much of lately. But it did feel really good to say somethings out loud which have inevitably been floating around in the back of my head. I am still feeling very calm which is sooo weird and not expected since I have freaked out so much over all of my other transfers/what-have-yous. I hope this is my body and mind's way of dealing and getting ready to be a much better home for our little frostie babies arriving next week. Crossing all fingers and toes.

Off to shower so I can run over to the labs and then the clinic for my U/S. Then a late breakfast with my Auntie and off to school before ukulele class this evening. Phew. I guess I will sleep well tonight!

  Stopped back home to pick up my meds and ukulele so I will add this.  After (finally) getting through to the clinic to change my incorrect labs in the computer I made my way back and was seen right away. I might mention my favorite procedure nurse saved the day.  According to Dr. my lining is "perfect" at 11! And I seem to already have my transfer it looks like at noon a week from now I will be PUPO!! =0)


  1. 14 boys... I totally cringed when I read that!
    I'm so excited for your FET next week- I can relate to the weird calm feeling, I had the same things before our IVF cycle. I kept telling my husband how I didn't feel normal! I hope it means great things for you :)

  2. Oh my. That is all I can say - you are going to have your hands full this year! Yikes!!! I am super excited for your FET next week! Praying for a great big positive test at the end of this!!!!

  3. 14 boys!!!! Uggg! That sounds like my class from last year...but of 6th graders! Yay for the FET next week! I'm so glad to hear that everything looks great!

  4. Wow -- 14 boys! That is way more than a handful!

    An 11 on the lining is perfect! I hope that this FET works for you. I'll be thinking about you and praying for a success!!

  5. Thanks for all the well wishes ladies, we are going to need them!! brave, brave woman! I would not set foot in middle school if it could be helped! =0)
