School has started! And my life has become a big whoosh as I work to keep up with it all.
School starting has brought mixed feelings. Some of my students are happy as kids receiving new phones with no strings attached. Others tell me they’d rather be in the back of a mile-long line at the grocery store. Ha! But still, for me there’s nothing quite like the spark in a student’s eyes after ingesting some tidbit of learning for the first time.
So we start the 2013/2014 school adventure. The year is waiting – clean, fresh, and unsullied. I know, I know – I can be nauseatingly positive about new school years. One student actually asked me if I ever didn’t smile.
Just ask my birth kids…
But it is true that every day I put on my happy face and walk into school with high aspirations. Yet, like my students, I mourn the passing of fancy free July days when I could spend hours upon hours writing. Hours upon hours reading. And hours upon hours playing in the dirt. (Made even more delicious when joined by my grandson!)
So, how about you? Are you back in school? Or are your kids or grandkids back in school? Anyone else besides me excited?
I’d love to hear from you.
And as always, thanks for stopping by!
