Dear Readers (I’m channeling Jennie right now),
Please pardon my absence. The school year has started. I have entered the world of learning 76 student names as quickly as humanly possible, turning into a giant ball of sweat in our un-airconditioned building, sprinting through 5+ straight hours of teaching before I come up for air, then promptly falling asleep as I rock my little boy each night. Please do not think I am complaining…I love every minute of the madness. It just takes me a couple of weeks to adjust and get back into the swing of things.
As hard as it is to not spend everyday with Connor like I did in the summer, it is nice to be back at school. I work with some truly amazing people and really enjoy the kids and families I have the privilege of serving. Here I am in polka dots on the first day of 6th grade!
My school is located right at an entrance to one of the city parks, which is awesome. I snapped this photo Wednesday morning on our first class hike of the year. I love that I work for a school that values getting kids outside, learning about the world around them and the impact we have on every living thing.
I have lots of yummy things to share, including restaurant reviews from our trip to Charleston/Kiawah and some good Where to Shop Wednesday posts.
Stay tuned and have a wonderful holiday weekend!
