Has been a loooooong time since I wrote a proper post.
I’m not even really sure what a “proper post” is at this point. So I am not going to dwell on it, and instead I plan to update and move on from here. The end of the year is a crazy busy time for my family. The last month-ish has been an absolute blur. Like when cars goes by in movies in fast forward and all you see is a blur of the headlights. That kind of blur. Kind of smudgy and very colorful. School has been awesome! I still love my job. I suppose this is a good time to start reflecting on the first half of the year! I have learned so much, been challenged in more ways than I knew possible, learned new ways of speaking, learned lyrics to songs that I am almost positive were made up on a whim to work with small children, been sat on, sneezed on, coughed on, and farted on, comforted many tearful tots, taught many lessons, reminded countless children to make lots of bubbles when washing hands, read a zillion stories, cried many tears about the loss of the children and teachers in Connecticut, and my heart is so full of love I hardly know what to do with myself. Being surrounded by young children all week every week is pretty much the best thing. As far as I am concerned. It is certainly not for everyone, but it is definitely for me! I am very much looking forward to having two weeks off to reflect, relax, and rejuvenate, but I will miss all the hugs and love I get every day at school!
Being a teacher brings to the forefront of my mind the tragedy in Connecticut. I am heartbroken and it makes me feel very sad every time I think about the families of everyone who was killed who are going on with life at what is supposed to be such a joyous time of year. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected.
Here are some photos of my life lately! In all the craziness that is the end of the year!
And now I sit here, post yoga, with a glass of wine. It is finally sinking in that it is Christmas break! Tomorrow promises to be a very busy day, as do the next several days, but it also promises to be super fun!!! I will try to keep this more posted!
