Busy times- presentation at VAIS, Fridays planning, narrative reports, poetry festival this Friday afternoon, looking forward to NCTE, challenge and collaboration, unit one writing celebrations, oldest child submitted first college application, regular workouts for the first time in a while, friends filling empty time…
We have been in our new house for 7 months. Long enough to chip some paint, use the air conditioning and the heat, watch daffodils bloom, rake leaves, clean gutters, refill the propane tank and replenish the wood pile. It is starting to feel like home.
My mom comes to visit in a week. I can hardly wait to spend time with her. She will be here through Thanksgiving. I have that whole week off. We are going to walk and talk and cook and putter and watch movies and do projects. Lucky me.
Life is looking up.
