Not bad for a fat girl


Winter Break

article-2252586-16A1C8A2000005DC-997_634x432Today is the last day of school in 2014. The children are giddy. The teachers are exhausted. The air is charged with electricity.

It’s a fun day at school, but a busy one. Holiday projects must be sent home. Gifts to teacher must be marked down so that thank you notes can be properly written. Student desks must be cleaned out. Bulletin boards and calendars must be changed. Any missing work from the quarter must be rounded up. Loose ends must be tied up. Equipment must be unplugged at the end of the day. Materials must be laid out for January. It’s a lot to think about.

After all is said and done we will walk out of school this afternoon with big smiles on our faces and happiness in our hearts, knowing that we will be spending time relaxing with the ones we love.

I am so fortunate to do the work I do, and I am fortunate that I get breaks in between to rest and recharge.

Just as I’ll be recharging from school, I’ll be recharging from the blog. I’ll be a bit quiet over the next two weeks, but don’t worry, I’ll be back with plenty more to talk about.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the season with the same enthusiasm that my students have. For them it’s all about fun and wonder. I hope you’re able to share some of that holiday magic with the ones you love this time of year.
