I think it's true to say that summer is winding down. I don't want it to be true, but it is.
This has been a busy summer for me traveling to Europe...plus a couple of other trips down to see the kids. But one of the sure signs for me that summer is closing is going back to school to get my classroom ready. Yesterday I went...I told myself I'd only stay 2 hours...well, I think I was there 4, but I got a lot done. Some of my girlfriends were there....Pam, Elaine, Lynne...they're some of my best buddies and one of the great things about school starting back.
My daughter-in-law, Emily, is excited about summer coming to an end. She has just gotten her FIRST TEACHING JOB! YEAH EMILY!!! Yep, she will be teaching 6th grade reading and social studies. I know her kids will absolutely adore her. This past weekend while Ron and I were down visiting, Emily took me to see her new classroom. It was probably just as much fun for me as it was for her. All the excitement of a new teacher...a brand new room to decorate...the promise of a group of kids that hopefully you can make an impact on. I'm so very proud of her!
