back to school

elliott began his final year at elementary school today. (sigh.)
beatrice started second grade, (big stuff.) and i'm in fourth grade for the 17th year in a row! ha! the kids attend our neighborhood school where their dad went, while i teach at another elementary school in our small city.

this year, my colleagues and i are enjoying a brand new building. let me just say, "WOW!" and "i love air conditioning!!!!!"

i've also found that while i will always miss the charm and character our previous building held, new construction offers cupboards and drawers that are deep and wide, (read: hold tons of stuff!) and the halls are eerily quiet with the carpeted floors.

i've been super duper busy getting ready for the new year, and i apologize for the lack of posting going on around here. i'll get into a groove soon, i hope!

much love and happy school days to you!


  1. I miss back to school hustle and bustle. I really loved it. Now with just (1) son in college and he now lives there year round there's not many things to do (other than apply for ridiculously high ed loans). Enjoy these days!


  2. Glad you love your new school! 'Miss you posting but I understand!
