Second reason - My daughter left for college yesterday. Today, my heart has a crack in it. I don't know any other way to describe it to you. I have spent the day wallowing and taking care of the lump in my throat. A good friend of mine told me once that, if you have a lump in your throat, you need to figure out why it's there and then take care of it. Well, I know why it's there - my daughter has left. So, now I am trying to take care of it. But, the crack in my heart. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be there for a while. I will put all my energy into caring for the lump and the crack so that I am ready for my kids on Wednesday, which is when school officially starts. So far, I have made minimal progress. This is starting to sound like a report card comment.
No more days of fixing up my classroom in peace. Wandering in and out of other teachers' classrooms to chat and exchange ideas. So, right now I am working on another set of classroom rules to share with you, but in the meantime, I am recycling an old freebie, just in case you didn't catch it the first time. It's the Daily Five - Use RIGHT to remember. I just put it up in my room. I hope that it is something that can also help you.
Thanks for reading this far. I am off to deal with the lump and the crack. I'll be OK in a few days. Nothing quite like a daughter leaving to throw you completely off balance. Right now, I just need someone to pat my head and tell me it'll be OK.
